Play sets the foundation for the development of critical social and emotional knowledge and skills. Through play, children learn to forge connections with others and to share, negotiate and resolve conflicts, as well as learn self-advocacy skills. Play also teaches children leadership as well as group skills. Providing children with the best play equipment to assist their development is important.

Children learn social skills when they play together. Encouraging physical, social, and emotional development is not only an important part of everyday life, but it is an important factor that children need to be able to succeed in life. Early experiences lay the groundwork for lifelong learning and behaviour. Physical activity during break times helps school children concentrate better. Playground equipment can encourage children to explore many skills. For children, every day is an opportunity to grow, master, and refine the many physical skills that we, as adults, no longer even think about. Strength, balance, and coordination must all be developed through repetition and intense periods of concentration to which children are naturally inclined. Balancing helps agility and equilibrium and thus the athletic confidence of children. Climbing elements encourage nurturing motor skills.
