Chicago Child Care Center Improves Playground Safety At Two Locations

Toddler Town & Toddler Town Daycare Too updated their outdoor play areas with synthetic lawn safety surfacing. Toddler Town Daycare improved playground safety by installing SYNLawn® synthetic grass. The upgrades are at the Evanston location and at Toddler Town Daycare Too in Chicago.

The SYNLawn® Playground System has soft padding to protect children from falls as high as 10 feet. This safety requirement is set by The CSA Group. The safety surfacing follows standards set by the International Play Equipment Manufacturers Association (IPEMA). The non-abrasive synthetic grass is safe for different climates and high-traffic areas. Toddler Town has paid for their playgrounds to be tested, which have passed safety tests with high marks.

'Safety is so important at a child care center, explains owner and director Angelo Nikolov. 'Parents know their children are safe at Toddler Town in Evanston and Chicago.

The upgraded safety surfacing reduces playground-related injuries at child care centers. Many playground-related injuries arise from children falling on an unsafe or abrasive surface. At Toddler Town, all outdoor areas are covered in safety surfacing except for entrances.

The child care center has also added new playhouses, sand tables, and art easels for creative outdoor play. These updates are a part of the daycare's continuous efforts to create and safe and fun environment. The playgrounds also are equipped ith video monitoring system to enhance safety and security.
