Thrive by Five – Detroit, MI
Snider Recreation was called in to work with the Early Childhood playground for Thrive by Five through Southwest Solutions at different locations throughout Detroit. They were designed to be age appropriate playgrounds for 2-5 year olds.
The structure at ALL SAINTS was designed for agility. Preschoolers can crawl through a tunnel or climb a mountain. They can balance across the Twisting Traverse and Power Pipes while their imaginations have them crossing a river of lava…whatever you do, don’t touch the ground! They can climb and crawl around the apex hole climber too. As they play they are building their upper body and leg strength along with their risk assessment skills. There is a shaded platform, known as a playground shade, where preschoolers can gather and play with the activity panels or race down the Rock’n Roll Slide!
Play is an important part of developing motor skills in preschoolers. It is through play that they develop balance and coordination. It is through play that they develop social skills. It is through play that the child builds confidence and friendships. We at Snider Recreation help childhood centers design and install play structures that meet the needs of the budding minds and bodies, where imaginations can go wild.
