Designing Age-Appropriate Early Childhood Playgrounds
Early childhood playgrounds for toddlers or preschoolers encourage skill development through interactive play, sensory experiences, challenging activities, imagination and independence.
When designing toddler and preschool playgrounds, keep in mind:
Children ages 6 to 23 months are gaining strength, stability and motor skills, along with a host of other physical and cognitive skills.
At ages 2 to 5, children are developing physical play and thinking more creatively so it’s important to focus on playground designs that offer age-appropriate challenges to test their motor skills, strength, agility and more.
