Language: English

Considerable researches have been undertaken on sense of place over the years. Research on sense of place has been examined in relation to different categories of people such as older adults, migrants and refugees, ethnic groups and many of researches these have focused majorly on the adults, and relatively limited attention has been paid to children. This is because of the notion that sense of place is developed when a person resides in a place for many years.  This paper aims to determine whether and how children develop sense of place with their environs and how their views about their place can be incorporated to achieve better planning of their environment.
