Metal Open Access Children's CubbiesMetal Open Access Children's Cubbies

Metal open access children's cubbies have a number of features, advantages, and benefits that make them ideal for classroom storage. They meet the needs of children of all ages, but they are of particular utility to primary and middle school students.

Cubby lockers help teach organization skills to young people. They also provide a very practical form of storage where items can be placed and later retrieved without loss of teaching time. Teachers already know how much time can be lost when students have to rummage through supplies to retrieve materials.

The waste of time is bad enough. Discipline problems often arise as well because the loss of focus quickly spirals into an unstructured flurry of chaotic activity. Teachers also encounter frequent challenges to discipline when students have too many non-essential materials at their desk that they can distract their attention away from instruction.

Metal open access children's cubbies come in a variety of designs that accommodate specific storage needs. All cubby lockers feature long vertical storage compartments combined with smaller, square storage compartments. The size and number of each compartment determine which model design is best suited for storing items such as lunch boxes, school supplies, backpacks, and coats.

Additionally, each type of metal open access children's cubby, regardless of model design, can be custom configured as one, two, or three compartments wide. By deciding how many vertical columns of storage compartments each unit should have, then multiplying that by the actual number of units, teachers can provide each individual student with an entire vertical column of specialized storage compartments.

The selection of a particular model design should be based upon the number of items each student will be placing in his or her storage area. Kindergarten and primary school students typically have a basic folder and lunch box to store. Since many activities occur at or near floor level, a compact design is practical for these students.

The primary junior cubby locker is ideal for these situations. It is only two feet high, and It features one, two, or three vertical units. There is plenty of room for basic kindergarten supplies at a cost effective purchase point. At the same time, the compact design makes it very accessible to small children who would otherwise have difficulty reaching up into a larger space.

As children grow, they begin bringing backpacks and multiple binders to school. Larger metal open access children's cubbies are necessary to keep all of these supplies neatly arranged and easily retrievable. The primary cubby locker offers a large vertical storage area over a cubicle storage area at the bottom. The Primary II design adds a cubicle unit to the top as well as the bottom of the longer vertical storage compartment.

The backpack metal open access children's cubby is the most elaborate design. It features two rectangular compartments located at the top and in the middle. Beneath these compartments are narrow vertical compartments standing side by side. This gives each student a total of four personal storage compartments and is ideal for intermediate and middle school age groups.
