Project Description

Little Thinkers Private Kindergarten, Cambridge

Little Thinkers Private Kindergarten was developed with the purpose to inspire, motivate, and embrace the uniqueness of every little one.

Walking through the reception area is a welcoming ‘house seat’ for children and parents. Internally, the building then divides into 3 classrooms for babies, toddlers, and preschool which all flow into the playground. These 3 rooms are expressed architecturally by 3 gabled roofs giving each room its own distinct identity within a cohesive overall design.

The playground and the classrooms face to the north to optimise natural sunlight in summer and provide comfortable warm classrooms in the winter. The natural playground has been designed to include fruit trees to provide shade for the building and to give the children the opportunity to grow and pick their own fruit.
