The purpose of this study was to analyze the space and facilities of selected kindergarten classrooms. The specific purpose of this study were (1) to compare the space and facilities found in the classrooms to criteria developed thorough research; and (2) to present tables to show the space and facilities as they were in the selected kindergarten classrooms. This study was limited to kindergarten classrooms located in the following Kansas communities: Bucklin, Ford, Mullinville, Greensburg, Macksville, Kinsley, Protection, Ashland, Coldwater, Minneola, Meade, Kingsdown, Wilroads Gardens, and Dodge City. Twenty-five school systems were personally visited by the investigator but only twenty kindergarten classrooms were found in these schools. Arrangements for visitations were made through telephone conversations and personal contacts. A five-page check sheet was completed for each kindergarten classroom visited. A small portion of the needed information was obtained by questioning kindergarten teachers, building principals, and custodians. Criteria were established using: (1) “The national Council on Schoolhouse Construction for Planning School Plants”, (2) “A Manual for Evaluating School Facilities”, and (3) the investigator’s personal background and experiences in the kindergarten area.
