Children come first
Selecting equipment for early childhood education
I think if I had one wish right now, it would be that all designers and architects would step back and ask, “What is really required in this situation? What will most honour the needs of the children and adults in this circumstance?” – Anita Olds
What qualities should we look for in play equipment? How can we support active, large-muscle play? What considerations should be borne in mind when selecting equipment for babies, toddlers or children with special needs? Our approach to these questions and to the role of play will determine the quality of the care and education we offer our children.
