The aim of this study is to propose architectural design, management guidelines and reviewing the evacuation behavior patterns in the kindergarten and day care center. To achieve these purposes, the architectural characteristics of 23 infant using facilities have been investigated and evacuation experiments and simulations were carried out for each one of these facilities.The results from this study are as follows : (1) The evacuation pattern in the infant's facilities was analyzed in depth by a spot investigation and computer simulation. (2) New design and management guidelines are proposed which reflect the characteristics of infant's evacuation behavior. (3) We arrange the mistakes of management for zoning, interior usage patterns and egress plan, all of which are positively important for safety (4) The periodical evacuation exercises are effective for helping infant's evacuation behavior and reducing egress time in emergency situation.
