Specialbørnehaven Karlebo, Kokkedal A playground that caters for children with special needs Specialbørnehaven Karlebo now has a new playground. The institution is for children aged 0 to 6 years who need special support due to their significant and permanent physical and mental disability. It is therefore crucial that the playground is carefully designed in view of the children’s special needs and the ways in which the childcare professionals can best support their development. In particular, it is important that the equipment is easily accessible for staff and can serve as an educational tool in their work. It was crucial, for example, that the play system was not too high. Therefore, Karlebo chose the Sikan play system, which comprises two towers with a floor height of 90 cm and steps that provide easy access for children and staff. In addition, the Sikan play towers are equipped with a slide and a lookout barrel, respectively. The playground was also upgraded with a carousel and an off-roader, which were positioned to encourage cooperative play and interaction between children using the play system and children using the off-roader. The carousel ensures additional sensory stimulation of the children’s vestibular sense and thus their balance.
