This chapter examines the interrelationship of spaces, social structure and preteen children’s agency. It recognises that multiple understandings and experiences of space exist. In some cases spaces are created specifically for children by adults with specific interests or perceived needs in mind. The use and experience of space may vary between children in relation to factors such as age, gender and culture. Children also appropriate existing spaces or create new spaces for their own purposes. Spaces can also emerge through adult-child interrelationships and cooperation.
