All kids are eager to play and grow up together. The design abandons excessive colors and cartoon patterns to inspire the kid’s interest, but rather carefully select and restrict its usage.
The 3-6 years old children usually convert what they see into simple symbols and it is the way they explore and learn about the environment. Therefore, the house-shaped benches have been cut into the sides of the room to bring out the simplicity and vitality.∇ 通往公共活动区的走廊提供了座位，是孩子们交流的重要场所，The corridor to the public playground is an important meetup place for the children. ∇ 简明的色彩和造型，使空间简洁而不失活泼，Simple colors and clear-cut shapes make the space look clean and vigorous 玻璃幕墙一侧被规划为公共活动区，日间的阳光充满该区域，公共活动区内定制了结合滑梯，攀爬，摇荡等功能的活动器械，有效的让孩子在游戏中认识到空间，平衡，速度和节奏，同时也是对户外活动场地面积的补充。 To further connect the children to the nature, the window side is transformed into the public playground, which ensures they have adequate sunshine. The slides, ramps, swings and other facilities are customized for the children, so as to effectively nurture them the perception of space, balance, speed and rhythm through the games while making the supplement to the outdoor activity area. ∇ 儿童公共活动区，Children’s public playground. 为了在有限的范围里增加儿童的活动空间，我们针对儿童尺度设计了错层的空间结构，构建了一个专属孩子的空间。 The split-level spatial experience is designed to expand the extra space for activities, which exclusively accommodates the kids for their height. 这样的错层也在教室中形成抬高的平台，丰富了教室的空间层次的同时也增加了孩子运动量。教室内还设置了独立的小房子，并将楼梯下方设计为可供儿童钻爬的小空间，这些空间在实际使用中深受喜爱，成了孩子们私下交换秘密和角色扮演的地方。 The split-level arrangement is also adopted in the elevated platform in the classroom, providing different functional levels and encouraging the children to explore around. There are also a separate cabin here as well as some small space under the stairs for crawling and playing. It turns out that they are the kids’ favorite spots for sharing intimate secrets and doing role plays. ∇ 错层在教室中形成的抬高平台，Elevated platform on a split level in the classroom ∇课室外的存物柜和观察窗，观察窗上方毛毡可用磁吸作为班级公告栏使用 Small cupboards and observation window outside the classroom.

Indoor multifunctional rooms such as children’s theater, picture book library, play kitchen are also designed to invite and encourage the kids to explore and participate in plays, reading and creative crafts. All of them fulfills the diverse needs of children at different ages. ∇ 绘本馆，Picture book library ∇ 儿童剧场同时也可作为舞蹈教室和运动场使用，Children’s theater with functions of dance studio and gymnasium 在城市高速发展的过程中，日与俱增的商业购物中心和住宅楼，正逐步挤压公共空间，幼儿园未必能像过往一样获得足够大的场地建立低密的独立建筑，这个问题无法回避，幸运的是我们可以看到园方正积极的做出调整，也有幸参与其中：于高密度的住宅与购物中心中辟出一隅，在有限的场地条件下最终呈现出一个充满活力的教育空间。 In the process of rapid urban development, commercial shopping centers and residential buildings increase day by day and gradually squeeze the public space. Kindergartens are not able to have large enough area to build in a low-density detached structure like the old days. It is inevitable, but fortunately Windsor Bilingual Kindergarten is actively adapting itself and getting involved: a niche is carved out of the high-density residential and shopping buildings and an educational space full of vitality is ultimately created without compromising on the limited site conditions.
