Kids Playroom: Classroom Aesthetics in Early Childhood Education

Educational experts believe that children learn best by forming their own views and can enhance their education through their own experiences and interactions. Positive experiences will lead to a positive view of their surroundings. As students gain new experiences, relate information to previous knowledge, and form their own thoughts on beauty, they will continue to develop. That is why early childhood educators need to provide students with opportunities to experience aesthetics for cognitive, social, cultural, and psychological development. Therefore,classroom design plays a vital role in providing such environments.


The interior design project focused on creating an aesthetically pleasing and stimulating environment for early childhood education, promoting creativity, imagination, and exploration. Through collaboration with educators and child development experts, the team incorporated a variety of textures, colors, shapes, ergonomic furniture, and a bespoke mural art design with cultural and natural elements in Sham Tseng, enhancing the environment’s aesthetic appeal and cultural relevance. The project targeted children aged 3-9 and their caregivers, addressing the lack of stimulating environments in early childhood education.
