Playground Structures for 2-5 Year Olds
Outdoor play is an important part of an early childhood education Center’s daily scheduling and a time that children look forward to most. Often, structured learning activities are taught during outdoor play periods with the play equipment serving as an outdoor classroom for bringing learning outdoors. Additionally, playgrounds at early childhood education centers are where young children learn important social and communication skills that they will use for the rest of their lives. Playgrounds encourage learning and physical fitness, but they are also a place where children can grow and create friendships in a fun and safer way.
