At Glick’s we build superior wooden swing sets because we believe in play, we believe in kids and we believe in what play does for kids.
The purpose behind our company and the quality of our wooden swing sets is based on a deep seeded belief in the benefit of easy access to stimulating play in a child’s life.
There are a large number of studies that have been done on the benefits of play time in a kid’s life. Everything from helping to combat modern vision issues due to tons of time spent in front of electronics to helping them master social skills, dexterity skills and stimulating their imagination and problem-solving skills.
The importance of play is important to all stages of development and Wikipedia actually gives a good general overview of its importance in skill and social development as well as learning and cognitive skills. You can read it by clicking Here.
There is an article that once again declares the importance of activity, especially in younger children.
“There are a vast number of benefits for children who experience increased movement and physical activity in early childhood. In addition to creating healthy habits and fostering a lifelong commitment to physical activity, children whose early childhood education is based in movement enjoy the following benefits in both early childhood and for the rest of their lives:
•Better social and motor skill development
•Increased school readiness skills
•Building developing muscles, bones, and joints faster
•Reducing fat and lowering blood pressure
•Reducing depression and anxiety
•Increased learning capacity
•Developing healthier social, cognitive, and emotional skills
•Building strength, self-confidence, concentration, and coordination from an early age”
