The daylighting difference: student health & learning

The effects of daylighting on student health & learning

Children need sunlight; and because most children and adolescents spend the majority of their daylight  hours in school, it’s important that students have access to sunlight by incorporating daylighting systems into classroom design. Exposure to natural light not only contributes to a student’s physical wellbeing by boosting their daily intake of Vitamin D, but also enriches their mental health by regulating the Circadian Rhythm and the release of influential hormones that, for adolescents in particular, can be difficult to manage on their own. Studies show these students sleep better, think more positively, concentrate longer, and miss fewer days of school due to illness. Studies also show that happier, healthier children perform better academically; and by diffusing daylight through halls and classrooms, schools can improve test scores, support student wellbeing, reallocate saved energy costs for school supplies and other needs, and promote sustainability.
