Educational spaces designed for children from birth to age 18 should be interactive and engaging. Each age group has their own requirements, and, when planning a space that accommodates multiple age groups, such as a library, zoning by age and function can help ensure all users’ needs are met. Zoning provides visual cues and signals for appropriate activities within a space and adds clarity and grounding for younger children.
Educational spaces play an important role in bringing the joy of reading and learning to kids. Creating environments that invite curiosity and help school-age kids feel safe and secure is the key to success.
