Day Care Crib Options

Registered child care providers and daycare centers strive to meet the highest standards, and that means purchasing cribs with the best quality.  These cribs not only meet all of the new CPSC safety regulations and guidelines, but there are many options you can choose from including:

  • Drop-down side gates
  • Under crib drawers to store bedding and other essentials
  • Plexiglas clearview sides for maximum visibility
  • Evacuation cribs with sturdier frames and wheels

If you’re trying to save space, check out the two-level crib, or invest in crib dividers, which enable you to put cribs right next to each other while blocking sound and germs.

New 2011 CPSC Crib Safety Standards

Pin It

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has approved new mandatory standards for cribs that ban the manufacture and sale of drop-side cribs, strengthen mattress support, demand stronger crib hardware, and make safety tests tougher. Under the new guidelines traditional cribs, both fixed-side and drop-side, may not remain in service after December 28, 2012 that are not compliant to these new standards and as a result, must be replaced. This marks the first time in almost three decades that the crib safety standards have been updated.

Day care centers, hotels, motels, child care facilities, family child care homes, and other places of public accommodations have and will continue to be affected by these new baby crib regulations. If your crib was purchased prior to 2011, your crib is likely no longer compliant with the new CPSC crib safety regulations. For more information about these new crib standards, visit the CPSC website.
