With the Peaceful Playgrounds Program, you can transform your playground into a colourful arrangement of games kids love to play and help promote movement skill development and participation in physical activity.
The playground is an essential part of any school and every community. Children spend many hours of their day occupying themselves with what the playground has to offer. The nearby neighborhood may enjoy both its appearance and its utility.
Considered the standard in primary school active playground design.
Design permanent playground activities that help make activity time more positive and productive: alphabet and number grids, hopping and skipping lines, and multi-use circles and squares are just a few of the nearly 100 activities that can be added. The program is intended to maximise the number of students involved in physical activity, rather than having them wait in line, or just stand around talking.
