This aim of this study is to identify and reflect the impact of kindergarten architecture on children. Kindergarten is the first educational and social place that children experience. It makes children more creative thus influencing their behaviours. Therefore, this physical learning environment should be more inspirational, challenging, thought provoking and uplifting. The places that are relevant for children’s learning should include an appropriate environment to improve their physical, mental and social growth. This is possible by utilising suitable architectural elements and designing a place that children use to learn. Architectural forms originate from special and specific elements. Thus, the best place for children must be colourful, absorbing, systematic and mirthful, besides being comfortable and safe.
