The Importance of Inclusive PlayLily is one to love playgrounds. She loves to climb, run, swing and jump. The bigger the playground, the higher the slides, the better! Another thing my daughter loves to do is meet new friends. I'm thankful even at four and a half, she's a social butterfly and gets along with just about everyone. One thing I'm extremely proud that we did for her when she was just two and a half, was get her feet checked out because she kept tripping all the time. After taking her to a orthopedic, we discovered that she was weak ankles and needed braces to help correct her foot while she walked.

Two years later we were able to get them removed and now she not only walks but runs without tripping! A few times here and there of course she'll go down but for the most part, her confidence is back and that's all that matters, especially when it comes to being on the playground.
The Importance of Inclusive PlayWhile searching for a playground to take her too this past weekend, I cam across one that we had never been before. It was with Landscape Design at an inclusive playground. We both loved it so much! Her reaction was of something of pure joy when she saw everything that this particular playground had to offer. It was a nature inspired playground filled with stimulating colors, musical instruments, easy access to get up and down various parts of the playground and even a small barn with pretend horses!
The Importance of Inclusive PlayThe Importance of Inclusive PlayTheir Inclusive Playground design promotes a higher level of inclusive by addressing accessibility, age and developmental appropriateness and sensory-stimulating activity! What does that mean? It's flexibility in use, it's simple and institute use, low physical efforts and used for perceptible information! It was truly amazing. The size and design is perfect for safety, comfort and social participation within their play environment! They believe through inclusive play that kids can learn life lessons such as leadership, support, empathy and persistence. That's why they create a play environment where all kids can play together!
