What To Look for In a Church Playground

When you’re considering playground equipment for a church, temple, or other place of worship, several factors should be taken into account to ensure the safety, engagement, and development of the students using it.

  • Line of Sight and Safety: Choose playground equipment that doesn’t hinder supervision so that caregivers have a clear line of sight across the playground.
  • Age-Appropriateness: Choose playground equipment for all ages so all children have an opportunity to play.
  • Accessibility & Inclusivity: Choose equipment that allows children of all ages and abilities to play together.
  • Maintenance: Choose equipment (like ours) made from high-quality, durable materials that can withstand heavy use. Your maintenance crew will thank you.
  • Themeing: Consider taking advantage of a themed playground or custom educational panels to reinforce faith-based teaching in fun ways.

The Link Between Play and Child Development

Did you know that having fun on a playground can enrich a child’s cognitive development, strengthen muscles, encourage creativity, and develop social skills? It’s true. Because of the ways that they foster movement and decision-making capabilities, playgrounds are ideal environments for kids to learn important skills like flexibility, communication, and even compromise. That’s why adding a play environment to your faith-based center is a crucial way to boost appeal and value.
