Equipment, activities, and materials provided should always be safe and age appropriate. Outdoor environment should have plenty of space, supervision, injury protection and prevention, and site maintaince.

Play materials should be safe but exciting and in a range of colors and types! Children need supervision and space when playing outdoors but also need things to do! Games to play with one another, toys to play with, centers where their imaginations can come up with new games to play every day!

At the child care center, you should provide a variety of equipment, toys and age appropriate activities for all children. For an indoor environment you going to need toys, blocks and balls at assorted sizes and colors, sensory exploration toys, a quiet place or time for reading, arts material, e etc.. For an outdoor environment you need safe structures to climb and slide, space to run and explore the nature.

In an outdoor environment a space is needed that has at least 75 square feet per child for the maximum number of children using the outdoor play space at any one time, in this space there should be nothing that could be potentially hazardous to the children.

A classroom should have a variety of material for children to play with. These should be sensory and easily available for children to access. Books and toys should also be out. An outdoor play area needs to be maintained and supervised with lots of area for children to play.

Play materials / equipment should be inspected and made safe for use by children of the appropriate age. Activities should also follow a routine, so as to provide children with security and safety. An outdoor environment should be large enough for the group of children and safe for them to play on.

As a daycare center you should provide equipment and materials that are safe and age appropriate. Also be sure that your outdoor play area can be well supervised and is large enough for the amount of kids you have.

Play materials, equipment and activities provided for children should include fine motor activities, large motor activities, cognitive and sensory motor activities. Equipment and materials that are provided for children should be safe, varied and age appropriate. Ample space should also be provided for the children engaging in the activity so they are able to move around freely. What is needed in an outdoor environment is ample space, ample lighting, safe equipment, adequate supervision for children, climbing equipment for children, bicycles for children to ride, balls for children to throw and other activities that promote children's fine motor development.

You should provide safe material and activities that allow children to learn and play in a variety of subjects. Sensory items, books, musical items, quiet spaces, and play pretend/dress up areas are great learning centers for children. Outdoor areas similarly should have sensory items, and safe play structures, with a variety of interesting outdoor toys such as balls, bikes, etc.

An outdoor space of 75 cubic feet per child should be provided lest the play groups be staggered. It should have safe play materials. There should be a variety of materials that are age appropriate provided. Some of these could include but are not limited to sensory play, dress up, music areas and outdoor play. The materials should help to develop children across the board, leaving room for up to a two year learning difference among your class.
