Planning Playgrounds for Day Care.
This booklet was produced by the Project to help day care centers make the best use of their outdoor play space for children. It gives the playground planner many helpful ideas and guidelines about equipment, arrangement, surfaces, long-range planning, play activity, community involvement, and the adult's role on the playground. Each of the States involved in the Southeastern Day Care Project developed its playground according to its own needs and resources, but certain overall purposes of the Project were considered. Centers were to be adequately equipped but not extravagantly, so that the programs would be replicable and could provide ideas for other programs. In addition, it was hoped that duplicating the traditional playground still found in many parks and schools could be avoided. (Author)
