Early childhood playgrounds offer not only the physical benefits of children becoming heathier and stronger, but they encourage the growth of critical developmental and social skills that will eventually help children become effective thinkers, leaders and collaborators. As children play they learn persistence, patience, coping skills, share with others, practice empathy and express their thoughts and ideas.
The National Association for Education of Young Children (NAEYC) says that playful learning outdoors goes beyond mere niceties and is critical for healthy whole child development. And, when play is emphasized in early childhood, it lays a foundation for important skills that will carry them to adulthood.
