So I just spent the $500 from a grant I received. I purchased a child size table, six child size chairs, a toy shelfing unit. I also purchased a 200 piece wooden block set, math equation bead set, sliceable fruit and veggie set, plastic pattern blocks and activity cards. Hope the kids enjoy these and they were good choices.

Who is Grant and why is he giving you free money??

You bought smart and I'm sure the kiddos will love it! Did you get one of those kidney-shaped preschool tables? I really want one. Don't know why, I just do lol.

Awesome! Be sure to take before and after pics of your daycare area so we can see all your new goodies once you get them!

The grant was through Voice/Csea. LOL at "whos grant?". Its not a kidney shaped table although I have seen them and would love to get one to, I just got a rectangular table with adjustable legs, it will be so much better for meals and arts and crafts.

I can take pictures just can't guarentee they will be to impressive since my daycare areas are my living areas as well so its hard to devote it all to daycare. But these purchases should be big improvements and help me get organized!!

Same...hopefully you can inspire me! I'm going to be getting a grant soon, and have been wracking my brain on how I'm going to re-arrange things so that it's not overpopulated with daycare things, but still kid friendly, and also adult friendly.

Very cool. You will be happily pleased with the difference a nice table and chair set and a nice wooden block set will make. Congrats on the new stuff!
