4 Benefits of School Playgrounds

School playgrounds offer many benefits for kids beyond providing a place to burn off energy.

1. They Improve Academic Performance

Physical exercise improves students’ learning. Research shows it stimulates mental activity and increases chances of higher English and math grades by 20%. Play is also crucial to give kids’ minds a break so they return to the classroom refreshed and ready to focus.

Additionally, playgrounds let kids challenge themselves. When they successfully overcome an obstacle, they’re rewarded with self-confidence. That emotion can carry over to academics and provide an incentive to keep trying.

2. They Support Physical Health and Development

Today, American children average only four to seven minutes of outdoor play daily while logging over seven hours in front of a screen. When you invest in high-quality, engaging playground equipment, you invest in your students’ physical health by promoting outdoor play.

Research has linked more time playing outdoors to many advantages, including:

Outdoor play also allows kids to take in the sunshine their bodies need to make vitamin D3, which is vital to building strong bones. The elements you choose for your school’s play area support physical development in other ways, too. Typical playground equipment helps build muscle strength, supports healthy vestibular systems and enhances balance and coordination.

3. They Support Better Mental Well-Being

Children experience mental health challenges like anxiety and depression. The outdoor playground equipment you provide can have a substantial positive impact on their mental health.

Playing outside lets students reconnect with nature, which increases positive emotions that reduce stress and anxiety. Research has also proved that children with attention deficit disorder displayed more focus after 20 minutes of outdoor activity. Additionally, the physical act of play releases natural endorphins that further boost kids’ moods.

4. They Provide a Real-World Classroom

Playgrounds offer kids the chance to apply their classroom lessons outside and enrich their education. They can safely explore nature and the elements. The school playground equipment you invest in can also provide sensory input that teaches concepts like cause and effect. Students can share the things they learn with others, boosting their self-esteem.

Additionally, outdoor play areas let children practice and develop other crucial skills that prepare them for adulthood. Organizing games and managing play teaches leadership while engaging in play strategies helps sharpen their critical-thinking skills. They learn about decision-making as they choose what elements to interact with. Interacting with others also helps them strengthen their social skills.
