We recognize the importance and need not only for creating a Masterplan for innovative inclusive playgrounds, but also assuring that it is made accessible to the populations and instances most in need of them.
We will create spaces for all children to thrive and engage in play. We want to support every child’s social and emotional development and help fill in the gaps by creating spaces and events for ALL children and their families to interact and learn about and from each other, exchange views and empathize with the others world view.
“Friendship among very young children and children with disabilities is not only possible, but beneficial. With support and encouragement from adults, young children with and without disabilities can form connections that not only provide enjoyment, but help promote their growth and development in multiple domains.” - Barbara Goldman and Virginia Buysse
Our idea of an inclusive playground is more than just providing the right surface for wheelchairs to roll on and it is way more than just providing universal play structures, which can be extremely expensive and for many communities out of reach.
We are rethinking the concept of the playground and creating a unique space where ALL children can access ALL parts of the playground.
We will plan smart, sustainable and affordable, so NO child will have to sadly watch peers at play while not being able to participate. We will guide and support towns with fundraising and execution ideas.
