Urban village is a unique phenomenon in the process of urbanization in China. Parents are engaged in high-intensity work,  left-behind children, as a neglected group, do not have a good growth environment. Children in urban villages, far from hometown, as young immigration, live in poor sanitation and crowded conditions.We designed a children's activity center, which is a rabbit hole for left-behind children, where their learning environment is improved, their safety is guaranteed, and their suppressed interests and hobbies can be released, which is a children's paradise.

Left-behind children refer to school-age children and teenagers who are entrusted by their parents or other relatives to stay in their hometown for more than three consecutive months by rural migrant workers and are subject to compulsory education.
