Investing in Play: The Importance of Active Play for Keiki

By May 1, 2023No Comments

At InspiredPlay Hawai’i, we are proud to partner with industry leaders like GameTime to provide our customers with the best commercial playground equipment and resources available. Our goal is to offer a full-service turn-key solution that takes the stress out of the entire playground design and build process.

We understand the importance of physical activity and its impact on childhood development. That’s why we partner with companies like GameTime to offer a complete line of climbers, slides, and swings that keep children active and engaged, promoting a healthy lifestyle. Plus, inclusive ADA-compliant playground equipment ensures that keiki of all abilities can join in on the fun.

But we don’t stop there! Our team of experts will work with you to create the perfect playground, tailored to your unique needs and preferences. We offer a complete range of fitness products and sports equipment for older students, as well as benches, seats, shade, and playground safety surfacing to complete your play area.

We are also excited to offer GameTime’s PlayOn! program, which extends physical education to the outdoors through creative learning, arousing the student’s sense of curiosity, imagination, and adventure. PlayOn! aims to increase children’s math and English skills by 20% by keeping them active during recess. Physical activity has also been shown to increase standardized test scores by 6% over three years, and just one physically active lesson per week creates a 13% increase in students’ physical activity and decreases 21% of teachers’ time managing behavior.

At InspiredPlay Hawai’i, we are committed to supporting educators in creating active school environments—which is why we love sharing the PlayOn! program! SHAPE America, a national initiative dedicated to ensuring 60 minutes of physical activity per day in K-12 schools, partnered with the PlayOn! program to provide schools and playgrounds a complete range of play systems, freestanding play, campus-wide activity, and inclusive ADA-compliant play enhancements, to help you create the perfect playground.
