Inspiring play, social development, and active lifestyles

Playgrounds are important in helping children develop essential life skills and attitudes, including social skills. The skills children develop through play will remain throughout their lives. Playgrounds provide many benefits for children that are not obtainable from the classroom.

Playgrounds provide a learning environment for unstructured play. Unstructured play encourages children to become active, boosting their self-confidence and aiding their development. A user-centric, creative playground solution offers innovative ways to nurture and engage kids and adults.

How Play Impacts Child Development

Play is the work of children. Children can experience and learn through play in a way that classroom learning cannot provide. Providing early access to play lets children develop a wide range of skills and understanding.

Engaging, fun, and interactive play provides the best chances for children to develop. It also helps grow their understanding of how things work. Letting children play can also develop cognitive, social, and physical abilities.

Playing a game, drawing, interacting with playground equipment, or becoming curious about something new all counts as play. The ability for a child to discover and explore while testing their limits and staying engaged benefits development.

The skills and experiences a child can learn and develop through play include:

  • Social skills
  • Decision-making
  • Emotional skills
  • Self-sufficiency
  • Problem-solving
  • Empathy and respect
  • Friendliness
  • Self-confidence

The types of play

As a school playground specialist, we create an ideal outdoor learning environment that encourages different types of play. Children of all abilities and age groups can benefit from our play areas that promote different types of play:

  • Creative play (sometimes called imaginative play) encourages children to use their creativity to create games, such as using play kitchens or role-playing.
  • Active play. Any form of undirected and fun physical movement, such as running, jumping, etc.
  • Sensory play. Helps develop a child’s senses, including hearing and touch, through sensory play panels.
  • Physical activity: Any outdoor activity that encourages bone, muscle, and physical development, such as ball games or climbing apparatus.
  • Social play. Playing together with other children to develop social and communication skills, such as using sand outdoor play equipment.
