Our beginnings are rooted in early childhood development

For more than 50 years, Landscape Structures has been committed to creating developmentally appropriate inclusive play experiences. Our original structures were designed in partnership with the Early Childhood Development Center at Iowa State University.

Since then, we have collaborated with many organizations such as the National Head Start Association and Too Small to Fail to create a range of developmentally appropriate activities for several of the Smart Play® playstructures, including literacy prompts designed to engage children and adults in language-rich conversations.

We have also designed and installed thousands of play spaces incorporating developmental standards put forth by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) as well as safety standards defined by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM).

The National Association for the Education of Young Children offers some great tips on how to enhance development at your early childhood center, daycare or preschool. Visit for more information.
