CHILD CAPACITY & AGE


What Is Child Capacity?

Child capacity is the maximum number of children that can safely play on a structure at one given time. It’s important to keep this number in mind when choosing your playground to ensure maximum play value for your children.

What Is Age-Appropriate Play?

Our play structures are built with specific age groups in mind. Each age group has a different developmental focus. Learn more below:

    Toddler (6 – 23 Months)

    Play structures for very young children typically have wide spaces for movement and exploration. These play areas provide babies room to crawl, walk and stand. Equipment intended for this age of user may include climbing equipment under 32" high, ramps, single file step ladders, CPSC and ASTM compliant slides, spiral slides less than 360⁰, spring rockers, stairways and swings with full bucket seats.

Smaller grips and appropriately placed railings accommodate hands and bodies too. Equipment intended for this age group may include certain age-appropriate climbers, ramps, rung ladders, single file step ladders, slides, spiral slides up to 360⁰, spring rockers, stairways and swings (belt seats, full bucket seats, and rotating tire).
