Transcripts - Natural Playgrounds Fun for Play!!

  • 1. for Playing all Day! Where you would want your child to play…….  Natural Playgrounds have proven stimulation for child development including creative interest, active orientation and social behaviour through high environmental diversity, optimal play spaces formulated to natural contours, and extensive incorporation of existing natural elements: timber logs, boulders, shrubs and trees.  Customised features: specific animals or a group! A bloat of hippos or a parade of elephants? Information boards, introduced add-ons, specialised equipment. A whole library of play animals, shapes, sizes and colours to choose from!! Now where should we start….has anyone seen the owls?  Design specifications and safety qualifications are guaranteed with playgrounds, as certified to National inspection standards.
  • 2. Where to Find the BEST Play….  Creative playgrounds (like ours!) that include modular coordinated play installations as well as unique architectural designs having natural materials and forms have been found to be more attractive and preferred by children (Greenman, 2005).
  • 3. Popular Features and Items… Custom-Built  Natural Playgrounds are built within the existing topography, accentuating the landscape and upholding naturally occuring features.  Structures can be standard or custom-built depending on user requirements and preferences.  Factors such as colour, size, shape and texture are able to be customised as well as the number of structures and amount of equipment you would like to see in your new environment… How about adding a vege-garden in that un-used corner space?
  • 4. …..to enable Hours of fun Sand Climbing Water
  • 5. Serious about Sustainability  We’ll work to embed your playground in the natural environment, leaving you to enjoy the accentuated exiting landscape!  Be assured of our minimal external impact through use of non-treated materials. From our commitment to sustainability, extensive use of recycled, renewable and non-toxic materials while conserving energy wherever possible we aim to increase efficiencies.  Use of non-treated materials and other natural resources ensures maintenance of child health, and environmentally friendly oils enable longevity of utilised materials.  Our playgrounds are unique with their very low carbon footprint, reducing costly environmental impacts while improving wildlife habitats and beautifying surroundings through use of indigenous plants and local materials.
  • 6. Confirmed through Current Research  Without continuous engagement, children lose interest and the rate of accidents increase. Multifunction equipment structures protect renewed preoccupation.  Studies conducted by the Grounds for Learning in Berlin examined nine aspects of play environments and their effects on child development and experience. Findings confirmed core components as integrated in natural playgrounds to be vital components of play. Namely, choice, risk and challenge, nature, play machines, sand, shade and seating, topography, variety and texture and water.  Environments can also allow for solitary time or small group engagement minimally enabled indoors.
