The Rules Of Playground Safety: 5 Guidelines To Give Your Children

For first time parents choosing a swing set or outdoor play equipment can be a daunting task. There are so many different materials to choose from and prices can vary from around a hundred dollars up to a couple of thousand for a larger solid timber unit. Outdoor swing sets can be as simple as an individual swing right up to a swing, slide, ropes and bars along with sandpit, cubby or fort.

Stay on them because it may take a few times-or a few painful tumbles-before they start remembering. And after every play session, have them put their toys away where they belong. It is a good lesson.

The best predictor of future behaviour is past behaviour i.e. If your child has had trouble separating in the past (e.g. at granny’s house, childcare, or preschool) then they’re are more likely to have trouble separating at school as well. This is normal – they just need a bit more time. From my own experience I think it takes at least 3 months (or a school term) for a child to settle into school. The routine at childcare or preschool is quite relaxed (where children are allowed and encouraged to ‘float’ from one activity to another), whereas school is much more regimented and requires a lot more concentration.

Discuss safety issues – sun safety, road safety, playground safety and stranger danger. Don’t take it for granted that they know how to deal with these issues on their own.

Whether you are looking for a play set for home or looking at a public playground, make sure it is age appropriate. If you are looking for equipment to use at home; look for something that is adjustable as your child grows. For your toddlers, look for something that is no higher than six feet at its topmost point. The play platforms should be no higher than four feet from the ground and have guardrails. They should also be easy to get down from. The playground slide should be no more than a 30 degree incline. It should also be at least twenty two inches deep. If the slide is more than four feet high, then it should have raised sides.

Nearly 70 percent of all playground injuries are due to falls. Acceptable surfaces include mulch/fiber, sand and synthetic materials such as poured-in-place rubber mats or tiles. Playground surfaces should not be concrete, asphalt, blacktop, packed dirt or rocks.

Playgrounds can be a lot of fun and also be safe for your children so make sure you speak with a backyard playgrounds professional for more information.
