Balancing & Climbing
So basic, yet so important
A somersault bar or a stepping pod may not look like much, but when children play on them, they are two of the best contributors to child development throughout childhood. Balancing helps train the eyesight and the child’s ability to concentrate. These are two very basic skills that both improve children’s readiness for school and their performance when going to school. A good sense of balance also helps the child be active – skills like kicking a ball or running both draw on the child’s ability to balance right. When climbing up high, a child gets both a sense of achievement and cross-coordination skills that will eventually help them learn to read.
