The Importance Of Play In Young Children

Having time to play outdoors is vital for young children. Sometimes it’s best to put down the computer and video games, turn off the television and spend some quality time outdoors. To do that, you’re going to need to ensure you have the right playground equipment.

Playground equipment needs to not only be safe but needs to fuel your child’s imagination and intelligence. Play time gives your child lots of different ways to learn. Your young child will develop more confidence, social and physical skills, as well as learn to care for others and the environment. Play makes young children feel loved, happy and safe.

Unstructured play helps to keep your child healthy and active. Children will be able to learn essential skills such sharing, negotiation and conflict resolution. Play allows young children to discover their own interests and undertake tasks at their own pace.  

People tend to be very busy, with work often following adults home. Despite the busy lifestyle, it’s important to ensure young children have a scheduled play time. Playing with a child not only has benefits for the child but for the adult as well. It allows for the adult to see the world from a child’s point of view. It allows for both adult and child to build a relationship with each other and learn how to effectively communicate. To fully engage with a child, it’s best to have some play time and make sure some of that time takes place outdoors.

Aarons are also able to design and produce products for the Early Childhood Education segment. We offer a range of play equipment that will help boost a young child’s imagination.

Forts will give your kids an open, safe space to climb, slide and run around, all the while developing their coordination skills and body strength. Steel modular playsets have an endless amount of customisable options, meaning you can create the playset that is perfect for your child.
