Preschool Children Preferences on their School Environment

  • Nurul Nadiah Sahimi


Children and adults have different views and preferences about the environment around them. Digital camera pictures offer a tangible documentation and representations of children’s perception and preferences regarding their school environment. This study is to identify children’s photography selection and preferences on the school environment, both indoors and outdoors. This study was conducted on 19 preschoolers (n=19) of age 4 and 5 using the project-based approach. The children were given a digital camera and were asked to take pictures of things in their school environment that they really liked. Their photographs were analyzed to see their overall preferences about their school environment.
