Play supercharges learning and helps children develop creativity, imagination and many other skills they can use throughout life, said Michael DeZaio, President of Center Stage Productions.

Center Stage Productions, a leading soft play park manufacturer for shopping malls, is helping to prepare young children for success in the classroom as they head back to school. What parents don’t realize is that the designed interactive play environments their children love to play in at malls actually help develop necessary social and motor skills they can utilize back in the classroom.

“Play supercharges learning and helps children develop creativity, imagination and many other skills they can use throughout life,” said Michael DeZaio, President of Center Stage Productions.

Indoor and outdoor soft play parks present young children with a forum in which they can build their social literacy skills. According to Vanessa Van Petten, an expert on adolescents and parenting, interactive play helps children learn how to express emotions successfully, deal with confrontation in healthy ways and read body language as well as facial expressions. All of the above are helpful tools to have while navigating social situations at school.

CSP’s interactive play environments have been purposefully designed to present children with many opportunities to refine gross motor skills by including play elements that encourage large muscle movement such as climbing, crawling, running and walking. Small, soft structures that kids can climb upon, through and inside are securely attached to specially engineered safety flooring, providing a motoric adventure that ultimately helps to develop a child’s strength and balance, all within a safe play environment.

In addition to gross motor skills, fine motor skills are developed through wall-mounted interactive play activities. These activities provide children with goal-oriented, hands-on experiences that foster sensory exploration and develop hand-eye coordination.

“One of the best examples of the learning-based benefits offered through play is our educationally themed safe play environment,” according to DeZaio. “This themed environment features an abundance of ABC’s and 1-2-3’s, surrounding young children with educational elements in the form of fun,” said DeZaio.

CSP custom creates a wide range of unique soft play park themes, all of which provide children with a meaningful environment in which they can practice the social and motor skills necessary for success in school and beyond.
