Playgrounds Too Safe to Keep Little Kids Active


Interesting article over at medpage today, about:

"A qualitative study of childcare center providers found that safety concerns, budgetary limitations, and emphasis on early academic readiness led to children in preschool not engaging in enough physical activity."

It was noted that "Strict safety rules for equipment and low budgets at childcare centers were largely blamed for playgrounds that don't make kids feel like playing......"

And let's face it, who would want to play, day in and day out, on the play structure above, particularly if there are identical ones in all the neighbourhood parks?

  1. As per my experience a playground is the only place a child wants to be and for just a thought about they probably get hurt while playing is not enough reason to keep away your child from his childhood fun. I would say we should encourage our kids for such risky plays and make them learn from their fall.
