Our Education Corner isn't much, and definitely not the impressive large dedicated space I see regularly online. I could have turned our upstairs loft into a cozy Education Center, but that would probably have cost some money, and remained open plan. I needed something that I could limit unsupervised access, as my boys are prone to ripping pages out of books if left alone for more than a few minutes.
So for now we've converted the dining corner of our kitchen into our Education Corner. I moved in a bookcase we already had, and after some reorganizing we had a home for our educational supplies. And with a safety gate at the entrance to our kitchen we can keep control of the access until the book destruction phase is over.

|The never used kitchen table is now the hub of our Education Corner.|
And because a tour of our Education Corner won't take much, I thought I'd add a few photos of other places "school" takes place with Sweetie Pie.

Hope you enjoyed looking at our simple and free set up. Next week I'll let have a look inside my planning folder (it's the pink one on the bookshelf.)
