Abstract Kindergartens of age group 3-5 years, a distinct and small subgroup of Indian schoolchildren, need special emphasis on human factors. The paper presents the results of an anthropometric survey conducted on schoolchildren. These data, previously lacking in India, can be of benefit for the designers of kindergartens. A set of 81 different body dimensions was taken from a sample of 198 children of age group 3-4 years and 4.1-5 years. Simple anthropometric techniques were used to collect the data. Statistical analyses of the data have been presented in a tabular form for designers as well as for non-technical users. It is emphasized that such data have to be developed at the national level, including every ethnic group, or on a regional basis. Designers, manufacturers and importers of goods should have access to these data.
