Hi, my name is Veronica Baragas with I'd like to share with you a little bit about interior design for daycare centers. Of course as silly as it sounds, a lot of people forget to take our little ones into consideration when designing the inside of your center. So if you've already have a center that's been established or if you are looking into building a center yourself, just take into consideration the height and the, you know, the requirements for the little ones that are going to be walking around. Make sure that you design tables, book shelves, even sinks at are, at a lower level than you would, you know, of course for adults. A lot of the times you want to kind of make everything in, kind of make it to where all kind of flows together so that it's easy for the parents to come in and out; for the kids to, you know, find their classrooms easily; for maybe kind of like an open layout so that classrooms have easy access to outside, also easy access to have, in case of emergencies, things like that. So just kind of think of the layout, how you're designing things to make a nice even flow and to make sure that it's all safe. A lot of the times your minimum standards will give you a lot of requirements as far as when you do design your daycare center. So make sure that you check with those so that you're up to par when, during inspections. A lot of times people forget to consider a lot of that stuff. And you know, their opening dates can be delayed or they can even get shut down because they're not up to those requirements. So make sure you check with your minimum standards for your state, with your state representative and just keep in mind they're little people.
