As the word origin of "Kindergarten" is "Garden for Children", Matsuzaki kindergarten's policy is learning from nature. That policy appears as "Forest Kindergarten", that is the children playing around in the mountain which the kindergarten has. Moreover, the owner transplanted trees from that mountain and made stream and small hills in the garden called "Play Forest" at their site. In this project, we supposed to expand "Play Forest" by building the new hall next to it, and make whole the kindergarten site "Garden for Children".
