Junior playgrounds in schools play a critical role in a child’s development. The playground is a place where friends are made, skills are honed, and challenges are met. By providing a balanced array of physical, social, creative, and cognitive play opportunities, we give children all the “tools” they need to develop and hone their skills.
Senior school playgrounds need to not only provide a diverse range of physical play opportunities they also need to provide places where children can engage in social play or just simply sit and chat. Senior school playgrounds also need to be designed to cater for high numbers of users in a short amount of time. Traffic flow and play-paths over, through and around the equipment must be considered and catered for to ensure there are no areas of conflict or congestion.
