kidkair I have photos on my website (http://kidkair.webs.com/apps/photos/) that show my layout. It's changed slightly since I took the pictures because now I have a toddler. I change toys every month so I get away with having very few toys out and still having happy children. Also I have a big yard and we spend much of the day out there.

same here. I couldn't imagine having plants on the windowsills or water bins or any of that fun stuff. I'd have a mess everywhere!

Crazy8 my group generally goes up to age 3 or 4. My room is only 12x16, but really only have a 16ft wall and a 9ft wall to work with - with the short walls one is completely open and the other has a 6 ft. window - so anything there has to be low.

thanks for all the great info!!!!!

I don't have room for many but so far I am thinking:
dramatic play - kitchen, dress up, etc.
blocks
reading

but I also need a more open area for "regular" toys so not sure how many other separate areas I can fit.
What are your ages?
I have music and movent, art, science, blocks, math and manipulatives, science, reading and writing and Dramatic play...
My room is 20 by 16.5
I have nothing Aganist the walls as far a shelves go, bur I have short walls made of ply wood or a book case/shelf dividing each station.

In my art center I have stacks of paper for drawing

Science
