Playground Safety
Keeping Your Toddler Safe at the Playground

Playgrounds are a great place for children to have make-believe play, challenge their bodies, and learn about sharing and taking turns with others.


  • Safe playgrounds for children under age 5 should have equipment that is less than 5 feet tall.
  • Close, active supervision is the best way to prevent your child from being hurt on the playground.
  • Choose a playground that has a deep, soft surface, like pea gravel, sand, wood chips or rubber tiles.
