Socially ‘Sustainability for children’ is about creating an institution with many social meetings and a high level of flexibility. A social kindergarten is a place where many experiences and activities shape the schedule of the day for the children at Marthagården. The kindergarten will thereby be able to activate and engage children, parents and staff daily through the disposition of the architecture.
