  • This study focuses on the spaces provided for the teachers under the premises that adequate spaces should be provided for certain users in nursery facilities. Even though the importance of the space for the teachers is recognized, the actual space provided for them is inadequate. Poor working environment for the teachers has an effect on their behaviors. Therefore, this study is focused on proposing a guideline for planning and improving physical problems based on the status of teacher's space in domestic nurseries. First, we identified related domestic researches and statistics and looked at the status and importance of teacher's space. Secondly, we analyzed the planning guidelines for teacher's space in domestic nurseries. Thirdly, we looked into foreign nursery cases to study the planning of teacher's space and its characteristics and categorized them. Based on the analysis above, this study proposes the definition of terms, institutional support, architectural design guidelines and improvement of evaluation program in order to provide teacher's spaces in domestic nurseries. Furthermore, this research proposes a guideline for teacher's spaces including space programs needed for teachers and types for planning.

Self-administered questionnaires were completed by 26 public early childhood education institute and 34 private ones. A majority of the teachers were women over 40 with at least bachelor's degree. Other than the fact that food service provides food to the children, it contributed in providing the essential nutrients to the children, as well as giving them the opportunity to learn table manners. A normal food service would provide one set of lunch and two sets of snacks, which would be provided by the institute itself. In most cases, the director or teachers planned the menus instead of dietitians. Journals, cookbooks, and other information put out by mass communication, such as TV and newspapers, were used as reference to those menus. The factors considered in planning the menus were mainly nutritional balance and the children's food preference. The difficulties in meal management were about the budget and nutritional menu planning. Fifty five percent of the subjects were did nutrition education, and they focused mainly on the table manners and hygiene education but once a year. The difficulties and complaints in execution nutrition education at the institutes were lack of nutritional knowledge, personal shortage, and excessive work. The institutes were urgently requesting for menu provisions from local Public Health Clinics. As a recommendation from the results of this study, food service management and nutrition related subjects should be more enforced into the nursery teacher training curriculum.
