  • Now that the new school year has officially started for both private and public schools, we got curious as to how parents set up their children’s learning spaces at home. Did they have to invest on tables and chairs? How are the kids studying if there’s limited space at home?


    11 photos of study room ideas for kids

    We asked our parenting community, Smart Parenting Village, to share photos of their kids’ study areas — no matter how simple or grand the setup. And as we’ve seen, parents have “kanya-kanyang diskarte” especially if they live in a small home!

    Here are photos that show how parents and children are coping with online classes at home. You might even get study room ideas for your kids!

    Mom Ann Tarobal says they have limited space, so her daughter’s play area also functions as her study area.

    Mom Raine Drops says this study table was made by her husband “na hindi naman karpintero.” She says, “Wood galing sa tabi-tabi, paint na tira-tira. Nothing fancy, just functional.” Props to the dad, though, for making an effort for his kids!

    What do you do when you only have one bedroom to spare? Just use folding tables and chairs! “Itatabi na lang ‘pag hindi na kailangan,” shares mom Pauline Gutierrez-Edra.

    Mom Avi Ging says that condo dwellers have super limited space, which is why they converted their dresser to function as their daughter’s study area, as well. We think it’s a great idea!

    Mom Mau Fernandez shares her daughter’s simple setup in their living room. “Table na de-tupi, ‘pag tapos na ang online class nililigpit at tinitiklop na agad para may space na sa sala,” she says.

    “Ate, I want to learn, too!”

    This photo is so cute! Mom Maybel Dimailig-Sapico shares that they decided to have online classes in the dining room, “para mas maluwang kasi nakiki-sit-in si bunso.

    Mom Lhay Anne Ma made use of stools to create a makeshift learning area for her son. One functions as a table while the other is where his tablet is propped. We love that school supplies are in full display as well — it helps motivate the child!

    We must say that this learning corner looks adorable!

    Mom Vhia Vicente says they invested in a collapsible table because they also have limited space. We love the bin on the side, which can hold a number of your child’s things including pens and other school supplies.

    The girls look like they’re having fun in class!

    If you have two or more kids, putting them side by side or in front of each other can help them stay motivated or focused on their schoolwork, just like what mom Irish Casaljay did with her daughters.

    One advantage of working at home? Parents on the night shift can lend their gadgets to their kids, just like mom Ruby Dichoso whose son uses her husband's computer.  “We don’t have a study room, sa sala lang ‘yan. Nakikigamit lang din siya sa daddy niya,” she shares.

    Here’s a good idea: Have a “reinforcement board” that will remind kids of the consequences of their behavior.

    Mom Carla Medina-Orca shares that they repurposed most of their furniture to create a study space for their child. “’Yung table ginagamit din namin as dining table kaya dapat kaunti lang ang nakalagay para mabilis iconvert,” she says. “Ang mahala organized, focused, at kumportable ang aming estudyante.” We agree!
