Elementary students as children pedestrians on their journeys to school, demonstrate the way they use space and movement pattern. Their unique space used can be seen on the pedestrian pathway in which safety should be the priority. Study space capacity of children pedestrian pathway and their movement pattern is urgent since there is limited research in related to child pedestrians and there is an inadequate guideline for it in the urban and rural area. The aim of this research is to analyze children space capacity and movement pattern. Data is taken in the form of video recording and photos using camera and smartphone and is counted using drawing program AutoCAD 2016 for measurement. Research location is 14 elementary schools in the urban area of the city of Manado and 9 schools in the rural area of Minahasa, North Minahasa, and Sangihe Island. The sample is based on Krejcie Morgan formula where there is a need for a minimum of 383 children considering the number of the population of elementary students in North Sulawesi province, Indonesia. Data is analyzed using SPSS 24. Results are children pedestrian space capacity with consideration to the number of children in a walking group and straight and zig-zag movement pattern. There is a need to have a special child pedestrian standard for the urban and rural area. Future research could develop the variant of location and time in which children walk to their destination, such as shopping precinct and housing area.
