How To Convert Your Garage Into A Preschool, Daycare, or Play Room


If you’ve ever considered starting a preschool but aren’t sure if you want it in your home, then you may just want to convert your garage into the preschool, daycare, or play room!  Of course, you certainly don’t need to convert your garage into a preschool room if you’re starting a preschool, but it’s an option to consider.

We wanted to convert our garage into a preschool room this summer because I wanted to separate our home and preschool.  You see, we had been using almost all of our home previously to house the preschool and now that I am going to be having a baby soon I wanted my own space separate from the preschool business.

Watch this great video below to see what we did to convert our garage into our preschool room this summer.  We’ve got some great tips and techniques for you that will help you as you convert your garage.


Be sure to post all your comments and your own tips on how to convert your garage into a preschool room below the video!  I can’t wait to see what you think about our brand new preschool room!

    Hi joy, I have had a day care in my home for the last 4 years, and would love to move on to pre school in my garage. You gave me some great ideas. Where do you keep all the arts and crafts/toys? What about the tools and lawn tools? I’m thinking of making a closet for those things on the side? I love your flooring. Do you have a sink to wash those sticky/messy fingers? Thanks for the ideas.

    Hi Joyce – If you look above in the comments you’ll see my answer regarding heating and cooling.

    Hi Julie – Here’s some answers for you:
    – Arts and crafts and toys are kept in containers on the floor as well as in wall storage
    – Tools and lawn tools (and normal garage items) are kept in our outside shed.
    – Yes, we have a bathroom connected to the room with a sink.
