Inclusive playgrounds welcome children of all ages and abilities to play, learn and grow together. Providing multigenerational, inclusive play ensures that all people experience meaningful play and the benefits of physical, cognitive, social and emotional development.
A community without a clean, safe place to play? Unfortunately, this is the reality for many suburbs and communities across the country. This is discouraging to hear because kids learn best when they’re exploring and interacting with others.
The National Survey of Children with Special Health Care Needs reports that nearly 1 in 5 children ages 12-17 have special healthcare needs. However, few playgrounds accommodate these special needs. As a result, children with disabilities often end up playing alone or staying at home.
Healing Communities Through Play™ is a national campaign with the hope of rebuilding community trust and relations between local residents and law enforcement through the common goal of building a playground together.
