Many people ask for advice on which kind of mat to purchase for their daycare of preschool. Mats fall into 2 basic categories - Folding and Non-Folding. Three things factor into a person's decision to buy a particular mat:
1. Budget - what can you afford?
2. Space - how much space do you have to store the mats when they aren't being used?
3. Comfort, durability, and aesthetics - How well-constructed are the mats? How long will the mats last and are they easy to sanitize and clean? Do you like the "look" of the mat? Some people prefer colorful mats that will add color to their daycare or preschool environment while others prefer to go with the basic colors (usually blue).
At Children's Organizers, we carry a variety of daycare and preschool rest mats to satisfy everyone's budget, without compromising quality and safety.
