Who would have guessed we’d be setting up a classroom in our own homes in 2020? Not us, but here we are. Trying to figure out this whole parenting and schooling thing while attempting to also work remotely. Fun stuff, y’all. We want to make the struggle a little more bearable, so we picked out some of the best desks for your kid as they remotely learn this year. We’ve got everything from desks suitable for a toddler to desks a teen can easily settle into and get into focus mode.

Your kid needs the perfect place to focus, get motivated, keep organized, and stay on top of their work. That means it’s necessary to invest in a super durable, functional desk that will be the perfect space for learning and studying. These desks are also perfect for after-school homework sessions, summer reading, and creative projects!

Also – big bonus points – kids’ desks can be super cute with bells and whistles or look and function exactly like the desks you see in schools, minus the multitude of used gum, pencil scratchings, and other miscellaneous grossness from other kids. 

Snag one of these student desks and your kid will start to get so excited for school. Here are our top picks:
