Age Appropriate Playgrounds are for More Than Just Fun

Age Appropriate Playgrounds are for More Than Just Fun

Posted on June 12, 2015 by Michelle Kraus

When it comes to playgrounds, age appropriate equipment is important to prevent injuries and give children activities that they can have fun doing.

But, age appropriate playgrounds aren’t just about having fun! In fact, they aid in your child’s development in multiple ways, including:

  • Emotional Development – Age appropriate equipment allows children to explore on their own and uncover new ideas without being put in harm’s way.
  • Social Development – Outdoor play is a leading social activity for children. In fact, age appropriate playgrounds present excellent opportunities for children to learn, explore, and interact.
  • Intellectual Development – Playgrounds pose an interesting challenge to children as they need to solve problems, manipulate items, and explore too!

At Ladybug Child Care Center, we have age appropriate playgrounds for all of our “little bugs.” As a result, your little one will always have the equipment they need to develop emotionally, socially, and intellectually!
