Zoning in on Kid & Teen Spaces
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.
Spaces by Zone
It might sound odd to strive for a noisy, messy space, but this happy chaos is evidence that young children like being there — and that they're learning!
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.
Often referred to as the tween years, this is a time of rapid change. Successful learning environments encourage exploration, experiential learning, and personal growth.
Teens want a space just for them! They’re also looking for interesting activities, access to technology, and a space for collaboration and content creation.
Access to technology is essential for mastering critical 21st century skills, as well as developing digital literacy skills.
Hands-on learning helps kids build critical thinking, collaboration, creativity, and communication skills.
