Playworx Playground Equipment for 5- to 12-Year-Olds

School-age children have reached an exciting age of creativity and athleticism that require more engaging playgrounds. At Playworx, our playground design experts partner with you to design commercial playground equipment and structures that meet this age group’s unique physical, cognitive, social and emotional play needs.

From planning and design to installation to maintenance, we help organizations design Certified Playground Safety Inspection (CPSI)-certified, accessible playgrounds that foster creativity, play and development.

The Benefits of Elementary Playground Equipment

Play is a critical component of learning for children of any age, and playgrounds offer kids ample opportunities to enjoy this activity. From physical to social development, playgrounds also provide the following advantages to school-age children:

  • Social development: Play develops a child’s imagination and boosts their self-esteem and confidence. This activity also teaches children how to cooperate, resolve conflict, solve problems, share, have patience and get along with their peers.
  • Physical development: Playgrounds improve a child’s flexibility, balance, hand-eye coordination and muscle control. They also promote healthy heart and lung function and enhance immune function.
  • Identity development: Children ages 5 to 12 are just beginning their unique, winding journey of self-discovery. Playgrounds foster imaginative play as much as physical play, allowing these children to explore their beliefs about themselves and the world.

Playworx Playground Equipment for 5- to 12-Year-Olds

Elementary-age children are developing physically, cognitively and socially, meaning they require play structures that suit but also challenge them. Developmentally appropriate play structures for this age group often include more advanced features that refine their fine and gross motor skills. These structures may be:

  • Rope, chain and other types of climbing instruments
  • Monkey bars and overhead rings
  • Sliding poles
  • Merry-go-rounds
  • Step, rung and horizontal ladders
  • Straight and spiral slides
  • Spinners
  • Sliders or track rides

As a Little Tikes Commercial dealer, Playworx designs and installs various turnkey and modular playground structures for 5- to 12-year-olds, including NU-Edge™ playgrounds and Play Builders® play structures. These play structures meet national playground safety standards and stand the test of time.

The Playworx Design and Build Process

At Playworx, we aim to make the playground design and build process simple. Our experts will lead you through our step-by-step process to building your community’s dream playground.

Here’s what you can expect when you partner with Playworx to design or install a new playground:

  • Planning and design: To begin, we’ll use computer-aided design software when we meet with you to plan and design the blueprint for your playground structure.
  • Consultation: A qualified Playworx consultant will help you understand the specifics of local and national playground safety standards. We’ll also walk you through your purchasing options so that you can make an informed investment.
  • Installation: Once we’ve finalized the design plans, our insured, factory-trained technicians will install your playground equipment.
  • Maintenance: In addition to our playground installation services, we offer playground maintenance to preserve your equipment’s durability and safety.
  • Financing: We understand installing a new playground or play structure is an investment, so we offer affordable financing solutions to help you make your community playground a reality.
  • Fundraising: If you’d prefer to fund your playground another way, we’ll partner with you to develop community fundraising programs and events that meet your financial goals.
