Training

Let us teach you about playground safety!  A major way the National Program for Playground Safety fulfills its mission to help the public create, renovate, and maintain safe and developmentally appropriate play environments for children is through training.  By combining our knowledge of playground safety content with the principles and methods used in expert training practices for adult learners, NPPS offers high quality in person and online training opportunities.

We offer training to those in the early childhood, elementary education, community programing, and parks and recreation fields to help them:

  • Create outdoor play and learning environments that are exciting, safe, and can meet the developmental needs of children
  • Change staff attitude and behavior in the outdoor play environment
  • Implement new policies on playground supervision and maintenance
  • Improve program quality
  • Comply with regulatory requirements and safety recommendations

Take the first step in ensuring every child your program touches has a safe, positive, nurturing, and fun play experience by further exploring training options available through NPPS.  For additional information on these training opportunities contact playground-safety@uni.edu.
