Children love to play outdoors. In fact, I think one of the most enjoyable sounds in the world is to hear the sounds of children playing and laughing while on the playground.
Moreover, the playground is where children can play freely including: running, jumping, climbing, pretending, exploring, socializing and simply enjoy the outdoors.
To assure that the children enrolled in your childcare facility have a fun and safe experience on your playground, it is vital that you conduct a daily maintenance check.
According to West Bend Insurance, an estimated 500,000 children under the age of 14 sustain injuries on playgrounds every year; 100,000 to 200,000 of these injuries require emergency-room care. Playground-related injuries among children cost an estimated $1.7 billion each year.
