AMAZING!! Makes more so happy to see the children enjoying themselves so!
Absolutely brilliant idea! It is known that we learn better if we have enough exercise or at least some movement while learning. I wish more countries would follow. A very funny presenter as well.

our Ancestors Grew up in plains and Deserts and Mountains.in iran .and when you going into the desert with the mountains around that Whether in the plain or in the foothills there is no noise at all. Silence Silence Silence and nothing more.and You will only hear a breeze and a little bit of little birds and if you close your eyes maybe and just maybe You will hear the sound of running a Gazelle if the predators have not destroyed their generation or The sound of the sheep's bells from far far away. Now I was asked if our kindergarten should do this or not.As you know, children in every way love the excitement and crowd.In any case, cities are vibrant and people are accustomed to it.but not me.i love silence and silence place and silence street.Perhaps the rest of the people will only endure it.but anyway it is hard to always being in silence and I think my people have always been looking for spaces and places to escape from it a little bit. Nevertheless, the love of a shepherd is just his flute. so how much noise in architecture design is good for people like this??

It is very good talk because they help us to become aware of the cuiddo of the small and realize that they have a very extensive imagination and that helps them to develop new things if we give them the opportunity to do it

Its awesome the idea that the architect have, education in the early years of children is important and the idea of ​​kindergarten is great since children play a lot and that is what they need.

it is an amazing school. Clearly that system does not work in all countries, we have different cultures. But I like how it is that education is improving.

Don Cresswell (1 year ago)
Yes, we always expect a child to grow up to be strong, independent, happy, highly productive and sociable adult. They cannot be like that if we keep children wrapped in a bubble, protecting from every minor falls and forbidding them to even move a limb or express their loud voice and happy giggles.

America is too stubborn to learn from this. American education is too set in its ways to relinquish absolute control over the children. American schools are prisons.

Looks good. What about the costs of building it and the space required? I understand Japan isn't exactly spacious. Adult Japanese sometimes vacate in sparsely populated countries (like those in Scandinavia) simply because it's such a contrast to their own. So while I'm all for this, how many of these type of kindergartens will be built when facing the reality of costs and the limited space available?
Marta Kheyfets (1 year ago)
Nobody is bothered by the fact that he constantly compares children to animals. "Monkey, monkey" or "sheep"? Like they're too wild to be placed into a smaller, more organized environment. What about the kids who want things predictable and safe? What about those bullied? Survival of the fittest, I guess, since they're referred to as little monkeys.

how did you manage the noise between 2 classrooms?? If 1 classroom is teaching something else and other is teaching something else then if there is no wall then the disturbance and noise will be more right?? Then how to avoid that? And why running on roof when we have grounds?
turbo gene (1 year ago)
You don't have to manage the noise because the children can grow very good concentration to listen to teacher in the condition. The noise is also a great element for their education. And, kids can run on the ground also, but the kindergarten's ground is made rough, not flat, on purpose, even though it's not in the presentation. So, many kids get injured once when they running, but never twice. They can learn how to run well on the rough ground. The roof is smooth, so easier to keep running for them, anyway.

It certainly seems more civilized than American kindergartens. You are lucky to be mostly Asian. In America there are too many language problems and racial strife. Latino children are horribly unruly as well as black students. I applaud you on your school. Such well mannered students. God bless you all.
ganbade200 (1 year ago)
How I wished we had this here where I lived.... Wonderful idea especially on the concept of classrooms without walls, who needs nap time anyway in school they should do all the sleeping at home in the comfort of their own beds. I never understood why many think its a good idea to sleep during Kindergarten.
Cool as Cucumber (1 year ago)
I didn't understand the reasoning he had with the noise being a good thing for nap time. I can reason that maybe having fresh air and the sound of nature as a good way to put a child into a more tranquil state though. I personally don't think having a ring as an only playground area is a good thing because normally they would have a rectangular space to work with but here you're only limited to a circle. The only thing I really like about this design is that its open area atmosphere.

Natasha Puspitasari (2 years ago)
I remember my kindergarten is placed aside a huge soccer field and my kindergarten itself have a very large area. This man really describe how I feel when I'm in school. When I was a kid, it always tingle me why we have to sit inside a packed classroom, filled with other kids and teachers. I always looking outside and if I have the chance to, I'll always running around the classroom. At the same time, I will try to go away from them and just watch from afar. The concept of the openness is really intriguing. Because you know, kids are always running around, yes we do cry when we tumble, but in a few seconds, we'll run again! I'll see to my friends in architectural studies view on this ideas. Thank you

Wow! So inspiring! That s the place where kids education starts, once they choose they're coping mechanism, it develops it does not change, so making sure they have chosen out of freedom not out of restriction it is absolutely world changing. I would have preferred growing up in a kindergarten like this, even do it was the school i did not like 😄, but this is a starting point to then change the schools as well. Thank you so much

great school! It's a shame we don't have such creativity in Italy. The only thing I don't agree with is the noise... But the project is based on great ideas! I think parents are the worst ennemies of their kids, when they want to protect them too much. I have a private school in Italy, and did the project myself. It's not such a great school, but I constantly have to deal with parents who are worried about all sorts of things... I wouldn't be able to imagine what running such a school would be like, at least in Italy.... quite a few parents wouldn't choose the school because they would consider it too dangerous.....

Love this idea, great for those that love outdoors. My daughter's gr. 1 class does morning runs after they sit down in the morning, and it is seperated from P.E. All the schools in Vancouver, B.C now keep the kids out rain or Shine, and dress for the weather with clean clothes to change into on really wet days.

this is really an amazing design,for it shows us(especially we Mainland Chinese) a distinctive viewpoint.most our chinese parent s care too much about childen,which we can take it as over protection.just like the Janpanese Architect said,someimes,the kid needs to tumble to learn how to live.yeah,i m quite agree with that,desinging more natural facilities to help the kids

A lot of you are misunderstanding something at this school.  You are not forced to go to this school.  Schools in Japan are not like Americanized schools, there is no real "predetermined" school.  You're free to choose whichever school you want to go to, regardless of distance, so no one is forcing parents to place their kids here, especially if they know their children wouldn't do well in an environment like this.  This school is not perfect, but it's a start.  It's not like regular kindergarten schools are any better, but having a variety of schools and structures allows a parent to have more choices to choosing the most ideal environment for their child.
ItsFlawlesss (3 years ago)
I hated kindergarten because it was so loud. I used to beg my mom not to send me there. I ended up scratching kids and pushing them when they came to take me to play. y mom ended up sending me only for a few hours a day just to "socialize". Not all kids thrive in this kind of environment.
