Classroom Chairs

SORT BY:
Comfortable seating keeps a child alert and engaged over the course of a school day, and classroom chairs are designed specifically with children in mind. They are usually compact and lightweight, which makes them easy to move from one location to another, and they come in a variety of sizes depending on the age of the child. Staples® carries a selection of chairs and desks to furnish any type of classroom or children's study area.

Benefits of Using Classroom Chairs
Child-sized classroom chairs can help young children foster a sense of independence. Furniture made with a child in mind is easier to reach and use without assistance from teachers and other adults. Child-sized furniture helps make a child more interested in their surroundings to create a comfortable learning environment.

Choosing classroom furniture helps give children a space of their own and safeguards against damage to full-sized adult furniture. Use school chairs in a study area at home or furnish a playroom with them. Simple school chairs work well in cafeterias or even in physician's offices to provide seating for young children. In a dorm room, a classroom chair makes an excellent desk chair.

Choosing the Correct Classroom Chairs to Facilitate Learning
School chairs come in a variety of different options to choose from. Plastic molded chairs are ideal for use outdoors or in art rooms and other locations where moisture can be an issue. Choose a chair with a built-in desk area to provide a work area for taking tests or writing notes. Wooden chairs are heavier so they are harder to tip over.

For school assemblies and other large events, stackable school chairs are easy to store when not in use. Stackable chairs save space and are easy to take from one location to the other.

What Is the Correct Height for Classroom Chairs?
Children's chairs range in height from 10-inches to over 22-inches. The correct height depends on the size and age of the child. Typically 10 to 12-inch chairs are correct for three and four-year-olds, while high schoolers sit better in chairs with a seat height of at least 18-inches. When in a seated position with their back against the back of the chair, their feet should be firmly on the floor.

What Are the Benefits of Classroom Chairs With Casters?
Chairs with casters offer greater mobility. Casters allow the user to roll to reach items on a far location of the workstation as opposed to stretching or standing. Also referred to as computer chairs, chairs with casters typically feature an ergonomic design, which reduces back and neck pain to keep a child more engaged throughout the day.

How Do You Keep Classroom Chairs Clean?
Classroom chairs see a lot of traffic. Keeping them clean helps reduce the number of germs. For plastic or molded chairs, scrub with a mixture of warm water and detergent. Use a soft brush to reach any cracks and crevices. Make sure the chair is completely dry. For cloth chairs, use a spot fabric cleaner. Test an inconspicuous place to make sure the chair doesn't stain or discolor. Use a damp cloth or cleaning wipes to wipe down legs and frames.
