As the days are getting longer, the weather is getting warmer and everyone is itching to get outside, especially children. Therefore having a well-designed, versatile outdoor space is important for any school at this time of year.
Outdoor play for children is important
for developing motor fitness and abilities, environmental awareness and navigation competencies, as well as promoting creativity. Playgrounds help children build a broad range of physical and emotional, skills, including motor skills, physical fitness, social interaction and more.
Picnic tables, benches, slides
and climbing frames
all contribute to making a playground a more useable and engaging environment. Having Litter
and Recycling Bins
around the Playground also help keep it a clean and welcoming space while encouraging children to tidy after themselves and recycle.
A school playground should be safe
, above all else, but still fun
. Equipment should be checked regularly and maintained to the highest standard in order to allow children to get the most out of their playground.
This includes checking for loose hardware, vandalism, potholes and more.
