Why adapt our playgrounds?
To see JOY on every child's face....

An Inclusive Playground: 
  • Allows everyone to fully participate.
  • Provides independent play opportunities with peers and develops social skills.
  • Allows children to demonstrate that they are smart, capable, and able to take developmentally appropriate risks.
  • Supports independent participation through multiple sensory modes.
  • Addresses physical, social and emotional needs of all children.
  • Engages all abilities in stimulating physical and social activities.
  • Fosters compassion and understanding of differences at a young age.
