SOCIAL VALUES AT THE PLAYGROUND
Did you know that Personality development, lessons in negotiation and respect, adoption of a moral compass, etc., are even more present in unstructured play outdoors ?
Why? With less supervision and more latitude outdoors than indoors playing a seated game, the child can experiment more openly with direct face-to-face interaction.
He learns to join a game on his own, take his place, defend it or not, intervene in a particular situation and deal with human differences. This is where the child builds cooperation, establishes his first social networks and develops a strong sense of belonging.
The child’s friends join him at the playground. Together, they invent role play and other games, and direct their fascinating imagination to play structures. Cable structures provide great opportunities for the budding Spider-Man and his opponents.
Spinners are the perfect meeting place for young, balancing ballerinas. Climbers are great for bold little monkeys who reach the top and are protected from powerful anacondas. In fact, all of Jambette's outdoor play spaces provide children with an environment to give free rein to their imagination and encourage the development of their social skills and morality.
Children learn through play ! This is why Jambette develops and designs play equipment that promotes the child's social and moral development. To learn more about how play contributes to every aspect of child development, download our Clever Little Guide to Getting Children Out to Play .
