Development Ratings for Playground Equipment
Safe and Sound playgrounds are committed to supplying you with the best play equipment on the market. We have had our play equipment independently rated by a leading childhood development expert – Dr Amanda Gummer from Fundamentally Children.
This allows you to make the right choice when choosing new playground equipment, whether the focus be on physical exercise based play, cognitive logic and problem solving development or play equipment which encourages social and emotional play such as turn taking and building confidence.
Each unit has been rated a Gold, Silver or Bronze award for how they score for their specific developmental area. Not everything can be scored a full gold rating (although we do have quite a few!) as different equipment tends to focus on different things. This is shown across the website on each individual product page.
This can also help you build a playground to cover all areas of childhood development and to develop a playground which can match the National Curriculum.
