The Finnish female poet, Södergran, wrote "Stars" in her collection of poems for children. Indeed, the stars shine brightly, falling to the ground with a resounding impact, and shooting stars sprout alongside children's dreams in the earth.
 

This is a story of children and the cosmic stars.
 

A long, long time ago, in a distant galaxy, there was a massive explosion that caused an alien named Doo-Doo to land on Earth, carried by the fragments of stars. Doo-Doo was incredibly cute, with a pinkish hue all over, and he quickly became friends with the children in the park. Children would curiously climb all over Doo-Doo because they wanted to explore more secrets of outer space. Some children would slide down the slide with a whoosh, not realizing that the slide was actually one of Doo-Doo's long, sturdy arms...

We transformed the blue sports field into the appearance of a galaxy, drawing the paths of planets, building launchers and space pods, and constructing a starry sky walkway and space shuttles. Based on the existing factory environment, with the transition from the industrial age to the era of artificial intelligence as a backdrop, we aimed to create a science-fiction world that gathers aliens and spaceships for children. This way, we aimed to plant the seeds of science in children's hearts, laying a solid foundation for their future.

Mysterious subsidiary planets are scattered throughout the park, where children can watch the sunset or gaze at the countless stars. Spaceships are parked on the grass, and when seen through the gaps in the starlight, even the Milky Way becomes traceable. Here, giant aliens reside, and the vast starry skies are the welcome gift they offer to the children...

A child's curiosity is like an endless meadow on a midsummer night, no matter how much you cut, it won't burn out. With the wind blowing, the wild grass extends to the sky.
 

When children board the rocket, they can launch themselves onto the starry sky walkway, run freely, play with their friends amidst the scents of the three-dimensional greenery, and read books under the nurturing sunlight. Looking down, long blue tracks smoothly stretch into the distance, and looking up, pink spaceships gently scatter all around. With the brilliant spring, lush greenery, some children run on the blue track, laughing as if they were in the vast sky, while others pilot pink spaceships, free as if they were exploring the mysterious cosmos.

Climbing up the starry sky walkway, the view above is vast, and dreams are within reach. Perhaps children can't yet distinguish between sunrise and sunset, can't see the afterglow of the evening, and can't comprehend the vastness of the universe and the hustle and bustle of the world, but the starry galaxy above, shimmering and sparkling, that little shooting star carrying their dreams has already quietly embedded itself in the children's hearts, waiting for the day when it can shine brightly.

Such a futuristic and science-fiction scene forms a new space and time where children can imagine and explore to their heart's content. Here, they can weave their own dreams of outer space.

Science is the primary productive force, and standing on the shoulders of giants, children will go further and become the successors of the era.
 

Kazuki Kato, the famous director of Fujii Kindergarten in Japan, once said, "A child's primary job is to play, and kindergarten should be a place where children eagerly want to go every day, the place they dream of." When children enter this kindergarten, they can experience joy while playing, sow hope while learning, and in a campus rich in technology and a sense of the future, they will produce one "astronaut" after another!
