Children's Recreation Activities: Facilities and Animation.
This study assessed recreational facilities for European children 5 to 15 years of age, and discussed the best means of meeting needs. The first chapter reviews the educational aspects of children's play--including physical, social, and creative development--as they pertain to various age groups. The second chapter considers the types of facilities that can be used for play and recreation. These include play areas in houses and flats, outdoor playgrounds, recreational areas and buildings within and near towns and villages, and camps and family vacation facilities. In Chapter 3, examples of existing European facilities, similar to those suggested in Chapter 2 are described; excellent diagrams, maps and photographs accompany the text. Chapter 4 concludes the study with an outline of methods of selecting, training and managing recreation center staff members, including directors, auxiliary leaders, and part-time or voluntary leaders and helpers. Examples of training programs from several countries are presented in detail. (ED)
