Play value - the influence of playground equipment

Research from the KOMPAN Play Institute shows that playground equipment influences preschooler’s development positively

Important developmental domains such as social, cognitive and language development are not the usual centre of attention in playground research. So the KOMPAN Play Institute set out to investigate to which extent play structures with a wide variety of activity panels influence these important development domains.

Play panels provide extra play value and can be used to advance the development of children’s social-emotional and cognitive development.  

Read the findings of the KOMPAN Play Institute to know more about what kind of playground equipment educators and park planners should invest in for their particular user groups, and why.
