Early childhood development play areas should be designed much differently than school-age playgrounds. For this reason the team at Highwire is happy to offer design consultations to help park planners, landscape architects, schools, daycare centers, and churches choose play equipment that is age appropriate, safe and imaginative.
Children at these early ages enjoy role-play and anything that develops their senses.
We suggest designs with strong colors, and friendly shapes to invite little ones onto the play structures. These products are designed with traditional play in mind, like swinging, sliding and climbing. Equally important and included in these designs is thematic play. Themes like trains, cars, ships, and houses allow pre-schoolers and toddlers to engage in pretend play activities. This type of play not only helps with individual development but it also encourages social interaction.
The large range of play structures you see here are perfect for sparking cognitive development along with gross and fine motor play skills.
