Well-designed playgrounds support the health and development of the children and the community
Why inclusive design is important
Inclusive playground design is now standard practice in all playgrounds. Accessibility in the last 25 years has greatly improved in offices, shops, city centres and playgrounds. A child with limited mobility or sensory processing issues should not be denied the joy and benefits playgrounds offer.
The Equality Act is not restricted to inclusive playground design. It is integrated in every aspect of our lives. The act is in place to prevent anyone, regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation or ability from
being discriminated against. Structural changes to schools, shops and street design that cater for people with limited mobility and wheelchair users access to facilities is on the rise. Companies and businesses have made huge changes to their premises, making a difference to the lives of disabled people as they can now work and be a part of the society in which they belong. Equality has a long way to go before it can truly be achieved but positive changes are constantly increasing.
Inclusive playground design is easy to incorporate into any existing playground. It can be enjoyed by all children without compromising tight budgets. Visit our product pages to find products featuring inclusive elements.
Many of our Play Panels have been specially developed to support children who are partially sighted or require sensory stimulation. Our Play Panels are interactive and can be fitted into your playground. Children can enjoy playing with noughts and crosses, wavy mirrors, play music, get creative and draw on our whiteboards and chalkboards. Furthermore, teachers are able to incorporate the play panels into group activities.
