Why are there no doors or dividers in the children's bathrooms?

Most child care centers built at the same time as Cornerstone have restrooms designed in a similar way. Open restrooms allow teachers to be certain that no inappropriate activities are taking place out of sight. Preschoolers adapt easily to open restrooms; modesty does not become a developmental issue for children until the school age years. Moreover, open restrooms permit children to develop an early and natural understanding of the human body.
