Why a Playground?

Excited boy with his handds in the airDid you know that PLAY:                     

  • Sharpens our minds
  • Helps us grow
  • Keeps us healthy
  • Increases our creativity

Children who PLAY learn to:

  • Problem solve
  • Make decisions
  • Express themselves
  • Communicate with others
  • Recognize boundaries

When we do not play, we are:

  • Less creative and productive
  • More sedentary, more easily fatigued, more susceptible to obesity
  • More likely to encounter social problems and emotional stress

The way we play shows:

  • Who we are
  • What we value
  • How we regard others

Children who play do better in school and become more successful adults.

We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.
          George Bernard Shaw
