Why create an inclusive playground?
Playworld understands that Inclusive Play stresses the importance of including all children, children with disabilities, as well as typically developing children and the adults in their lives. We create playspaces where diversity is valued. Inclusion enables all children of all abilities and ages to play together.
All of our playspaces are created to provide high quality play opportunities regardless of their needs and abilities.
"Children won't always be able to participate in all available activities, an inclusive playground will offer all children a real choice in play activities" Barnado, policy and research organization in UK.
