The child is one of the most important topics in many studies, and the childhood stage is one of the most important periods in a person's life, as it is the stage during which his personality and abilities develop. And, because the home is not only what the child requires to discover the world around him, the external environment is regarded as one of the most important factors that can aid the child in deep and enjoyable growth and discovery. It has been observed that the spaces of the child's urban activities suffer from lack of care and deficiencies in several elements, including safety, as well as their inability to meet the needs of the child.

As a result, the inductive method is used in order to study the urban spaces associated with the child's activities and their relevance to his needs. The research then uses the deductive method, analyzing some global and regional experiences to come up with a model for measuring the performance of these spaces, identifying flaws, and converting them into smart urban spaces, with the results being applied to a local model.
