Playground safety

Play allows children to gain the life skills, competencies and values necessary for a happy and productive adult life.

Children most commonly learn these life skills in the 'playground'. Our thinking about play should be broadened from confined areas that contain only modular, fixed equipment, to areas that are diverse, flexible and interactive learning environments.

'When children really enjoy a well-designed playspace, they want to return there again and again. The playspace has a special meaning to them and offers special memories to share'.
