Creche & Primary School Guidelines
March 22, 2006 at 3:03 pm #708513DevilleParticipant
I am a student currently studying Interior Architecture. I am on my final project and I want to design a creche and primary school. I am having trouble finding the proper architectural guidelines. Can anyone help?

I presume you have read the recently updated Childcare Regulations?
Child Care (Pre-School Services) Regulations 2006
That should be your start point. Section 5 will be of particular relevance.
Also see Child Care Act 1991- Part VII â€“ (Appendix D)
and the following:
Childcare Facilities â€“ Guidelines for planning authorities (June 2001) (available from Government Publications Office and http://www.environ.ie)

Building Regulations (Amendment) Regulations, 2000 â€“ S.I. No. 179 of 2000
Technical Guidance Document M (2000) â€“ (Access for People with Disabilities)
Resource Pack to Support Best Practice in the Design of Childcare Facilities (currently
in draft) (will be available from City/County Childcare Committees and Pobal)
Fire Safety in Pre-schools
Code of Practice for Fire Safety of Furnishings and Fittings in Places of Assembly
(both available from Government Publications Office and http://www.environ.ie)

On the fire safety side maybe also have a look at
Building bulletin 100: Design for fire safety in schools (UK)

Well, if you wonder what the Department of Education actually does, it writes guidelines, – tons of them!
