Hampton, Virginia (PRWEB) August 29, 2014
As research continues to prove that play time is essential to the social, cognitive and physical development of children, more schools are investing in upgrading or augmenting their commercial playground equipment for outdoor learning.
The Rivermont School in Hampton, Virginia, selected APCPLAY to provide assistance with planning and specifying affordable, durable and engaging playground equipment for their students.
What makes Rivermont School unique is a curriculum that is designed to support children with special needs. Programs are modified specifically for children who have diagnosed learning or behavioral needs, such as children with Intellectual Disabilities (ID), anxiety disorders, or language and emotional impediments.
When children with special needs are given the opportunity to engage in free play activities, there are a number of health and wellness needs that are fulfilled. An appropriate playground structure for a special needs environment will incorporate both social and independent play activities, allowing the playground to meet the needs of every child and their play preference.
The Rivermont School selected a fun and engaging playground structure that meets those needs. The ‘Walnut Ridge’ commercial playground structure features a variety of physically challenging, fun and cognitive learning opportunities for children aged 5-12 years.
