Familiarizing Adventure: Designing Environments for Early Childhood Education _ Isabel Potworowski

Designing environments for educating young children is a fascinating endeavour, because through them, they are guided in their discovery of the world. How can the design of these environments kindle children’s natural curiosity and eagerness to learn? What kind of conditions encourage children to explore different activities, and to develop their personal interests? A balance between two opposing but complementary spatial qualities is needed: on the one hand, designs of contemporary kindergartens and nurseries provide spaces that can simultaneously host a variety of different activities, and that are rich in visual stimuli. In this way, they engage children in self-directed play. On the other hand, they provide a familiar and secure environment by organizing learning spaces around a central, intimate “home base”, by establishing a domestic scale, and by designing a protective exterior and entrance. By doing so, they create an environment that resembles a home, from which children can confidently venture out to explore the world around them.
