Text description provided by the architects. Kido adopts a unique “PPP” teaching method, which is “Project-Based Learning”, “Problem-Based Learning” and “Game-Based Learning”. Kido’s innovative curriculum requires spaces that can naturally integrate learning and play, cooperating with Kido’s immersive learning adventure, to fully ignite children’s passion for learning and life.
First, we created a Campus Common that integrates multi-scenarios. The Common is in a circular and compatible layout with an inviting reception area, an open room that can accommodate various events and an imaginative art hallway. There is no rigid division between these areas. The space is flexible and fluid, allowing a convenient connection between the different areas.
A central staircase leads to the mezzanine area. Play corners and reading corners are provided. The spiral slide in the corner of the mezzanine is a little secret for children, catering to their nature of discovery, exploration and adventure. The children go up and down the large steps and slide, greatly increasing their amount of daily exercise.
To make better use of the space, a storage function is integrated into this curved wall. The two-tier cabinet is ideal for storing a large number of teaching materials and kindergarten items. The staff area at a corner of the Common integrates office, leisure and hospitality functions. This area is open to the multifunctional Common, which allows interaction between staff and children at all times, improving the security of the space.
Each classroom is equipped with an exploration platform, connected by a staircase and a slide to the upper and lower levels. The children’s bed is placed under the platform, and the enclosed space creates a feeling of calm, which is very suitable for a nap. the upper layer is used for various activities – reading, games, playhouse – the exploration platform effectively expands the classroom area and the richer space. This arrangement is also very popular with children, which subsequently increases their daily exercise.
Kido believes that an abundance of love, care and attention provides the strongest foundation for children in the early years. Our love for children is also reflected in the design. Whether it’s safety rules, material selection, or furniture design, we strive to create a loving space for Kido’s children. Curved walls, chamfered corners and anti-pinch doors, etc. are used in the design of space. At Kido, every detail is taken care of with care.
