Specialized Daycare Playground Equipment
PLAYGROUNDS PERFECT FOR THEIR EARLY YEARS
What Zoom Recreation Can Offer for Your Daycare
We're Here to Help from Start to Finish
Take your daycare vision from concept to creation.
Age Appropriate PlayFinding out the ages of the children that will be interacting on the play equipment allows us to ensure we design the equipment to fit the physical and mental abilities of the children. This is a critical aspect, as Age-Appropriate play is centered around the safety guidelines of the Public Playground Safety Handbook. With Daycares there are two age groups:
- -6 to 23 months
- -2-5 years
2-5 Aged Playground Equipment
6-23 Month Playground Equipment
MOVEMENT AND TEXTURE COUNTING SHAPES SIGHTS AND SOUNDS
TODDLER SENSORY TOWER LITERACY CUBE
Types of Play Elements
There are many different types of play that you can incorporate into your daycare. Below are examples of each type:
Dramatic Play Equipment
Dramatic play is a critical component of play as it helps spur the imagination of the kids as they explore new aspects of the playground. Developing imagination is proven to help kids with creativity and a variety of other cognitive functions.
Sensory Play Equipment
As children play, they develop their sensory skills which includes smell, touch, taste and sight. We love incorporating play equipment into the space that allows children to explore a variety of their senses at once.
Musical Play Equipment
Nature Play Equipment
Playground EquipmentZoom Recreation supplies ideal play structures for daycares, offering age-appropriate standard equipment in addition to recycled plastic, themed structures, ADA-accessible equipment, rope climbers, and more.
SurfacingSafety is key in what we do. As a part of our top to bottom offerings, we supply and install artificial turf, loose-fill rubber mulch, play turf, pour-in-place rubber, shredded bonded rubber, and wood mulch. We can recommend the best surfacing option for your daycare.
Shade StructuresDaycares may want to consider complementing their play area with shade structures. This not only will provide a comfortable place to play, but it will also protect toddlers from UV rays while also protecting the equipment, ideal for longevity under California's harsh sun.
Site FurnishingsKeep your play area functional and enjoyable with site amenities such as benches, tables, trash receptacles, and bike racks. Teaming up with Superior Amenities, we supply and install the nation's top site furnishings.
What are our space constraints?One of the most vital elements to the design stage of play equipment is understanding just how much space there is to work with. It comes as a surprise to many of our clients on just how much space is needed around the "Use-zone" of a piece of play equipment in order to stay in compliance with ASTM and CPSC Safety Standards.
Budget for PlaygroundThe last important factor we like to discuss with preschool play spaces is budget. With commercial playgrounds and play amenities, the cost for items can come as a surprise to some clients. We like to be realistic as we enter the design so that we create a space that is financially realistic for your daycare or early learning facility. Understanding your budget helps us to narrow down things such as play surfacing, which can vary a lot in cost per square foot based on the product. For example, Pour-in-Place rubber surfacing or Artificial turf will typically be 3 to 4 times more expensive than wood mulch surfacing.
Once we determine what's important, whether that's more the play equipment or the surfacing, we can use that criteria to customize a design that makes sense for your preschool or daycare.
After we finalize your design, we'll go ahead and build out a full proposal for you and your team to review. This will include 3-D renderings of the site, renderings of each piece of equipment, 2-D plans of the space and spec sheets going into detail on the dimensions/materials that go into each item in the proposal.
Once you are ready to move forward on the proposal, we will begin production on the equipment and get you on the schedule for the installation. Our typical lead time from time of order to shipping of the equipment is typically 5-6 weeks.
