Ages 2-5 Years Play Structures (for Preschools)

During the 2-5 year age range, children have much more control of their bodies. New equipment that requires more of a physical ability is able to be introduced. By using these pieces of equipment children at the 2-5 year age range are able to further develop their muscles to prepare them for the next age group.

The Ages 2-5 Years Play Structures category highlights the appropriate structures for this group. Structures in this category feature certain climbers, ramps, rung ladders, single file step ladders, slides, spiral slides up to 360 degrees, stairs, and horizontal ladders less than or equal to 60-inches high (for ages 4-5). Imaginative play, learning panels, and music panels can also be found on these systems.

Outdoor playgrounds offer great opportunities for active play and exploration. This makes them an excellent resource for any preschool or daycare facility, as play time is developmentally vital for young children. Preschool-aged children learn significant and valuable new skills through this type of active play. If you're interested in building or updating a preschool playground, carefully select equipment that creates a welcoming environment for physical, imaginative, and educational play. A well-designed preschool playground provides a safe space for activity and adventure. You can maximize the benefits of your new play area by incorporating a few key considerations:

Choosing Preschool Playground Equipment: Age-Appropriate Activities

Selecting age-appropriate items is a primary factor when choosing new preschool outdoor play equipment. Preschool playgrounds should feature activities and structures geared toward the needs of young children as kids receive the most developmental benefit from activities that are properly designed for their motor skills, physical strength, and cognitive development level. Not only will this enhance their play time experience, choosing age-appropriate equipment is also an essential part of creating a safe play area for young children. If your preschool is used for other community purposes or often hosts older children, consider searching for preschool playground equipment items that also engage the developmental needs of older children. While some items are designed specifically for children under five, there are many activities and structures that are safe for young children and still fun for kids ages 5-12. AAA State of Play offers preschool-appropriate equipment including water stations, playhouses, sand boxes, and more. We also offer a number of items that are suitable for children of all ages ranging from swing sets and play structures to arts and music stations. Always consider your preschool's unique needs when exploring AAA State of Play's inventory of outdoor playground equipment for preschool-age children.

Safety Features for Preschool Playgrounds

In addition to choosing engaging and age-appropriate play equipment, it's also important to address other safety issues . Careful planning of safety features helps ensure that your new recreation area is a secure space that is suitable for energetic young children. While injuries are inevitable during active play, choosing the right surfacing materials and installing additional safety measures can help mitigate the hazards of active play. Surfacing is an important protective feature when installing outdoor playground equipment for preschool use. Proper surfacing offers a higher degree of protection from spills and tumbles than natural surfaces. AAA State of Play offers a number of surfacing options, including: rubber nuggets, wood mulch, rubber mats, poured-in rubber, and synthetic grass. Appropriate surfacing will depend upon the type of play equipment as well as budgetary and aesthetic considerations. In addition to protective surfacing, carefully assess the conditions of your play area and determine if additional measures are required. You can also shop AAA State of Play for safety products like safety borders and shade structures. When building a preschool playground, consult official government guidelines to ensure that all of your equipment choices and safety measures meet current local and national standards for playground safety.
