The Peaceful Playgrounds Walking/Jogging Track

Peaceful Playgrounds new Walking and Running Track is great for getting kids moving and perfect for those days when it is too wet to run out on the field. The track was designed for schools who rarely have the benefit of a designated running space. Some schools have put the track on the perimeter of the blacktop playground and others have added it in a large square on one portion of the playground. It also gives the local community a place to exercise and will can help in meeting Competitive Preference Priority 1.

Physical Activity Court and Trail

A new physical activity program includes a permanent physical activity court and a trail that is painted on the playground. Unlike a fitness trail that requires expensive outdoor equipment stations, the physical activity court is a low cost, easy to implement and can be added to existing space or the perimeter of an asphalt area. Another benefit is the elimination for carrying bulky cones and mats to the playground for stations which instead, are painted stations immediately ready for student and community participation. It also gives the local community a place to exercise and will can help in meeting Competitive Preference Priority 1.

Brain Breaks & Digital Downloads

Our digital product line  can help in meeting the  Competitive Preference Priority 2—Development of Non-Cognitive Factors.  Our variety of brain breaks, PE Stations, Bullying Prevention Materials and Training, as well as, Character Education materials will help in meeting this priority and a variety of licensing options are available.
