Landscaping Strategies for Children of Different Ages

In early childhood playgrounds, toddlers and preschoolers learn‌ ‌through challenging‌ ‌activities, sensory‌ ‌experiences,interactive‌ ‌play,‌ ‌imagination‌, ‌and‌ ‌independence. When designing a landscape for children in this age group, we keep the following things in mind:

  • Children aged six ‌to‌ ‌23‌ ‌months‌ ‌progress physically and cognitively by gaining strength, stability, and motor ‌skills.
  • Between ages two and five, children think and play more creatively.

These guidelines confirm that ideal childcare landscaping offers age-appropriate changes to develop strength, motor skills, and more. We‌ ‌work with you to ensure that your inclusive playground accommodates a variety of developmental needs.

We would also like to note that playgrounds aren’t just for children. A well-designed space also serves as a backdrop for social gatherings and community activities. They bring people together, deepen community engagement, and create a sense of local pride.

The team at GardenMore knows how playground design can improve the development of children and the community. Together we ‌can‌ ‌design an environment that will inspire a child’s imagination and engage your community for decades to come.

As landscape architects, we understand the benefits and opportunities of adding playspaces to local environments, namely:

  • Playgrounds‌ ‌that‌ ‌use‌ ‌natural‌ ‌materials‌ ‌enhance the feeling of being in the outdoors. ‌Building a slide into the side of a hill, for example, takes advantage of the natural surroundings.
  • Establishing a playground in a natural area or a designated habitat area can benefit the environment. ‌You can easily attract wildlife to your community with the right native plants in the playground.

Children also benefit from the educational aspects of playing in a natural setting. It can pique their interest in and understanding of natural landscapes. By letting them learn while they play, you can inspire a lifelong interest in nature. Call GardenMore today to learn more!

We Follow Safety Guidelines for Childcare Landscape Maintenance

Bruises and scrapes are inevitable when kids play, but it is important to take steps to prevent more serious injuries. When you work with GardenMore, we’ll help you keep the children in your care safe by:

  • Recommending age-appropriate equipment and products made from the best materials. We also offer a competitive warranty on the main play structure’s‌ ‌plastic,‌ ‌steel,‌ ‌and‌ ‌vinyl-coated‌ ‌components.
  • Laying playground safety surfacing. Our wet-pour rubber surfaces reduce injuries resulting from‌ ‌slips‌ ‌and‌ ‌falls and don’t become slippery when wet.
  • Recommending shade systems that prevent heat-related illness on warm days.

We can also carry out childcare landscape maintenance to ensure that both playground and equipment remain as safe as possible. Ask us about scheduled maintenance services.
