Architecture can inspire young children; the very shape and form of a daycare centre can not only stimulate their imagination but can help children to form strong relationships and help to promote development. This design guide presents all the elements of building design that combine to create the very best environments for young children and the people who work with them, including: building materials; multi functional spaces and design scaled to suit small children.
