GROSS MOTOR ADVANCEMENT

Preschool children need to practice their gross motor and sensory skills. The level of refinement in physical activity increases steadily.

A variety of physical activities stimulating cross-body coordination, balance and proprioception is recommended. Jumping and running are important means of building bone mass.

IMAGINATION UNLIMITED

Preschoolers increasingly express themselves through spoken language. They use their imagination to act out scenarios, inspired by the social phenomena they encounter. Children’s role-play develops language, communication and understanding of the world. Play areas that offer easily recognizable themes can help promote this development.

UNDERSTANDING THE WORLD

Preschoolers grow to understand the cause-and-effect of phenomena in their surroundings, learning through play and first-hand interaction.

Since children need to experience things to understand them clearly, playgrounds should provide opportunities for cause-and-effect play such as manipulating various items, including materials from nature.

With a KOMPAN solution, you can be sure that this is built in.


Three tower w/ U-net & ADA PHY

This play-dense three tower structure allows for versatile physical activities, all in a spacious framework, allowing for a lot of children to play. A nice inclined net leads the child to the low house platform from which it can take the slide down. Alternatively, they can cross the bridge up to the middle tower. The middle tower can also be accessed by an ADA stairway, spacious enough for an assistant to go with the child. From here, the child can take the Curly Climber back to the ground, or cross the swaying climbing U-net which even allows for a break at the bottom of the net. On the other side of the U-net, a tall house platform invites a break and an elevated view or a slide ride down. A small play world exists under the platform, created by two play desks. If an additional break is needed, the hammock under the platform allows for one.
