What is a single sided bookcase?
An early years single sided bookcase is a piece of furniture designed specifically for education environments, particularly in early childhood education settings such as preschools, kindergartens, and day-care centres. This type of bookcase is tailored to the unique needs of young children and demands of an early years learning environment.

We have a wide range of single sided bookcases ranging from our Early Years Freestanding Antibacterial Classroom Bookcase Storage Unit which is perfect to add that little bit of extra storage to our Thrifity 6 Compartment Wooden Grey Front Facing Bookcase with Storage for those larger classrooms with more resources.
