An up close and personal dialogue with Fuji Kindergarten’s principal Mr Sekiichi Kato, vice principal Mrs Kumiko Kato and school’s architect Mr Takaharu Tezuka. This exciting conference will be held at the National Museum of Singapore, Gallery Theatre on the 1st and 2nd of October 2016.
It has always been a key objective of professional educators, designers and architects to create learning environments that complement and enhance a human being’s natural disposition to learning and working. This conference hopes to learn from Fuji Kindergarten, Japan. Having successfully built an environment that is designed solely with the child in mind, their fascinating architecture and management style makes a bold statement: children deserve the best and exceptional spaces should not just be reserved for adults, but for the very young who are starting out in life.
As advocators of quality early childhood education, we hope to encourage like-minded individuals, organizations and leaders to take this rare opportunity to review and experience new perspectives, practices and implementations of a thoughtfully designed early childhood environment to support strong and healthy development of young children. Highlights of the conference include the opportunity to hear about Mr and Mrs Kato’s early childhood education philosophies and Mr Tezuka’s stand on the integration of environment to stimulate learning.
To our professionals in the fields of management and design, we understand the importance of organizational culture, functionality and ergonomics. We see the importance of environments made not only to be liveable, but fun, engaging and managed sustainably. Highlights of this conference will include a presentation by Mr Tezuka, an award-winning architect prized for his perspectives on living, learning and working spaces.
Plenary sessions have also been included in this conference so that all attendees may engage the speakers to gain further insight on the topics covered.
