It is important to know which age group the playground has to cater for. Play equipment which is too challenging for young children may mean that they will not be able to use some of the equipment and activities, such as a rope ladder that is beyond their physical abilities. Consequently, their playground experience might not be as positive as it would otherwise have been. This can affect their self-confidence, and they might not want to have another go, which will negatively affect their development. Similarly, older children will not be challenged or develop enough if the playground activities are designed for younger children, and as a result they end up feeling bored.
The play value and educational benefits of playgrounds therefore depend on the play activities being age-appropriate and the playgrounds being designed accordingly. There are several age groups between 0 and 9+ years. If, as an institution, residential neighbourhood or municipality you need to embrace a wide age group, our playgrounds can be adapted accordingly. In such cases, it is imperative that the playground is divided into different play zones, and that the play equipment can stimulate and support children large and small.
The playground for 0 to 3-year-olds focuses extensively on basic motor skills, which are key to children’s natural development.
Go to age group
In the playground for 3 to 6-year-olds, the equipment further develops the children’s gross and fine motor skills, while the children’s social and language skills are also developed through role-playing games.
The playground for 6 to 9-year-olds helps to strengthen children’s classroom-based learning. This happens through focusing on a range of skills such as balance, coordination and social interaction.
Playgrounds for children aged 9+ years need to provide challenges for children’s gross motor skills as well as obvious places where the children can interact socially.
