KIDSAFE SA RECOMMENDS THE FOLLOWING DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS FOR PLAYSPACES:
• Accessibility – able to be used by all students
• Areas for Free Play – running and games
• Agility and challenge items – equipment doesn’t have to be high. Keeping items low to the ground will negate the requirements for impact areas and certified surfacing.
• Nature Play – natural play settings positively influence children’s behaviour and their development in regards to mental health, social and emotional relationships and provide stimulating, sensory experiences.
