Natural Playgrounds

November 2, 2016

 

We are proud to bring Natural Playgrounds to schools. While we have been a leader in the commercial playgrounds, we recognize a need for natural play opportunities.


Decades of research have proven the positive relationship between natural play and cognitive development. Natural Playgrounds offer a rich diversity of play and learning opportunities suitable for different age groups to match your needs for learning and play.

 

Benefits of outdoor learning:

 

Physical:

  • An increase in physical development, capability, and activity

  • Setting up patterns for an active, healthy lifestyle

  • Fewer children suffering from diseases such as obesity, Diabetes, and ADD/ADHD

 Cognitive:

  • Stronger language, problem-solving, and communication skills through projects and group activity

  • Developing an interest in science and math through connecting with nature

  • Fostering learning through self-initiation, control, and personal responsibility

Psychological:

  • Happier

  • Higher, more positive self-esteem

  • Effective relationship building in a cooperative, non-competitive environment

  • Building a healthy and balanced internal psychology from time spent alone

  • Manifesting classroom harmony

  • Social-emotional mastery

Understanding:

  • Familiarity with and appreciation of nature

  • Wide, expansive view of how the world works

  • Building stewardship skills for the environment

The possibilities are truly endless, and Playground Planners is CSA certified and we team with companies that understand the cognitive development of children, meaning anything we design will meet all safety standards. We will work with any ideas you may have a help cultivate a plan that is fun and cool as well as safe.

 

Outdoor Classrooms:

Bringing the inside classroom, outside. There are so many models of what we can build to suite the needs of your classroom; traditional, oval, circle shaped seating.

Experiments

 

The use to see through planters can engage and interest a child to no end. The children can observe and watch the plants take root and grow into flowers or vegetables.

Games

 

Getting kids outside and away from screens with simple games, we can build race car tracks, Tic Tac Toe games with rocks or on tree stumps. Engages children to play together and work on social skills.

Just an example, would require further design for each setting.
