How to Choose Kids Outdoor Furniture that is Durable, Safe and Stylish for your Preschool


Choosing the right kids outdoor furniture for your preschool can be challenging with a wide range of options available. With different materials, sizes, colours, appearances and brands to choose from, it can be difficult to select the best quality outdoor furniture options. This article helps to explore some of our top indicators of durable, safe and stylish children’s outdoor furniture.

Prioritise Safety

When choosing the right kids outdoor furniture for your preschool, safety should be at the forefront of your decision-making. There are several design features that can help to increase the safety of your outdoor furniture choices. When choosing the best option for your preschool we recommend looking at features like rounded edges on bench ends, smooth surfaces to easily remove debris, and sturdily constructed outdoor furniture items. In addition to design features it is also important, that your furniture options are manufactured to the relevant safety standards for your preschool. Note that these safety standards may vary between different Australian states.

Durability and Weather Resistance

Another key consideration factor when making your furniture selection is material selection. It is important when selecting your outdoor furniture that furniture materials can withstand tough Australian weather conditions. Durable materials like aluminum outdoor furniture, offer desirable properties like rust resistance, moisture resistance, and resistance to UV radiation. When selecting outdoor furniture that bolsters durability and good weather resistance, you ensure your kids outdoor furniture is designed for longevity.

Size and Age- Appropriate Design

When deciding which outdoor furniture items to purchase for your preschool it is important also to factor in the age range you are purchasing for.  Age range is an important decision-making factor as it can influence height and weight for your outdoor furniture. Picking the right children’s outdoor furniture size is key to encouraging useability within your outdoor spaces. It is important also to note that selecting the wrong size furniture can cause additional safety hazards for children.

Easy Cleaning and Maintenance

Kids outdoor furniture should work seamlessly in your outdoor space. One clear way of doing this is ensuring that your furniture selection is low maintenance and allows for easy cleaning. As different outdoor furniture materials require different levels of maintenance, it’s important you investigate the right material for your preschool’s outdoor space. For areas that require less maintenance aluminum outdoor furniture is a great material choice. It allows for easy cleaning of dirt, spills or stains with a simple soap and water cleaning method.

Comfort and Design Features

It is important to also factor in design features that ensure comfortable seating. When selecting your children’s outdoor furniture items, look at purchasing kids outdoor furniture items with adequate support features. Looking at features like appropriate backrests and seat heights as this helps to create the most comfortable seating options to best encourage socialisation and interaction.
