Child Development Center Playgrounds
Play and Child Development
Give the kids at your school or community center new ways to learn and develop by adding a strategically designed commercial play environment to your site! In early education and development especially, play is an incredibly important part of how kids grow. As they climb, jump, slide and swing with friends, they’ll be doing more than having fun — they’ll also be growing key mental, social, physical and emotional skills. With this in mind, SRP Playgrounds provides innovative, high-quality playgrounds that highlight the importance of play in child development.

The Role of Unstructured Play in Child Development
Most parents and educators are aware that play is important for kids, but what many don’t realize is just how closely child development and play are connected. Play directly correlates to brain development and how children grow cognitively, socially, emotionally and physically. The social interaction that kids have while playing side by side is an excellent place for them to explore feelings, learn to express themselves and develop oral skills. What’s more, all the movement that happens on a playground allows for many new learning opportunities in adaptability, flexibility and resilience. Essentially, the combination of all of these skill-building aspects of play make it one of the most valuable and beneficial aspects of childhood — and, with the right play structure, it’s easy to help kids make the most of their time on the playground.
