Schools are the buildings where children spend most of their time. The surrounding environment of children should be providing extreme comfort in all senses so that they are able to perform wonderfully well in day-to-day life. The paper discusses about the various comfort parameters related to children those arise in any school building during the daytime. The main focus of the paper is to highlight the importance of the necessity of investigation required towards finding out the thermal comfort factors of children in naturally ventilated school buildings in coastal Karnataka.
