Millions of children benefit from programs and places to spend their time when school is not in session. A well-designed outdoor playground is a major component of a high-quality program. But what is a high-quality outdoor play environment for an out-of-school program?
Our current study takes a look at popular play spaces, active dwell time and positive social play in outdoor playgrounds for after school care.
