Early Childhood Playground Equipment That Helps Kids Grow
Playgrounds for daycares and preschools present a unique set of challenges. The playground environment you create needs to provide appropriate levels of challenge and activity for children in this age range, while accommodating the different levels of ability and rates at which they develop and learn. You also need to consider giving caregivers the visibility and space to help kids when they need it, as well as provide special features to keep these younger children safe as they play.
For more than nine decades, Miracle® Recreation has been helping daycares and preschools serving kids ages 2–5 with playground equipment designed for early childhood development.
Considerations When Choosing Outdoor Play Equipment for Your Preschool or Daycare
Considerations for Younger Kids
Playground equipment for daycare centers and preschools is very different than play equipment designed for older students. Preschool outdoor play equipment needs to consider special safety standards for younger children, including reduced heights, sturdier surfaces and more. Children between the ages of two and five are still developing core muscle groups, coordination, balance and other skills and abilities — they need play equipment that’s exciting and encourages their mental and social development, but also allows them to play safely as they work on their physical strength.
With Miracle Recreation, you can find preschool and daycare playground equipment designed explicitly for this younger age group. As leaders in playground equipment, we have helped create hundreds of play areas for daycare centers and preschools, including innovative and fun playgrounds around specific themes, limited space considerations, and budgets of all sizes.
