Full Bucket Seat Swing Seat for your Department of Parks and Recreation

A swing is an essential part of a park, daycare or preschool playground. However, for maintaining a safe playground environment full bucket seats are recommended for the little kiddos swinging on the swings. At Playtime, we carry a line of full bucket seats that are designed for toddlers to 12 years, up to 125 lbs.

The bucket seat is uniquely made with EPDM rubber and polymer blend finished with heavy duty stainless steel. The bucket is completely enclosed for added safety and comfort. The material helps it to maintain a cool temperature and to resist fading to the yellow swing bucket.

This bucket seat features: leg openings that are designed for small feet and for comfortable seating, a steel reinforced material on the belt line for maximum safety, is in full compliance with ASTM F2373 Playground Standard. When purchasing ask us about color selection: yellow, black, red, blue, green, and tan. This product does not include the chain and fastener. You can ask our customer service about have them added to your order.

Studies have shown that swings help young kids in the development of sensory perception, motor skills, like coordination, balance, motor planning and body strength, cognitive skills and social development. Swings should be an integral part of your parks and recreation playground plan.

Fire Truck Playground Equipment Great Addition to Little Feet Daycare & Preschool Grafton, WV

Fire Truck Playground Equipment

Fire Truck

Along with the Musical Chim, Spyder Ryder, Merry Go Cycle an other playground equipment, Fire Truck stands out as one we can say the kids really love. Everywhere in the world, you ask a group of kids, “what would you like to be when you grow up.” At least one out of ten will say a fireman. Little Feet Daycare & Preschool made a wonderful choice in playground equipment when they added the Fire Truck to their playground fun. These little kiddos are very fortunate to have this playground equipment as part of their preschool play fun.

About the fire truck Little Feet Daycare & Preschool had this to say: “Some exciting things are happening at Little Feet today!! A couple new pieces of equipment to enhance our outdoor play area. The units we chose offer different benefits. The fire truck will allow social interaction as well as imaginative play. Gross motor as they are making the large muscle movements to turn the wheels. This will also encourage them to run (you have to move quickly to put out a fire once you get there!) We also chose a music element to add to the outdoors. This allows them to learn rhythm and beat, great pre-reading and memory tool. It is also a great sensory sound experience that allows some children to connect in various ways! We are so excited to explore our new stuff.”

tiny tots spinner to playground fun

Tiny Tots Spinner

Tiny Tots Spinner is a really fun playground equipment for kiddos 2 to 5 years old. It is a fun spinning ride that teaches kids how to have fun together. Gateway Learning Center installed the Tiny Tots Spinner on their playground and had this to say about the whole experience:

“We admit children on the basis of compatibility with the day care center’s purpose and mission in mind.
Great customer service! The kids LOVED the new equipment today! They were patient and worked with us today even though the process on my end took a lot longer than it should have (church daycares have about 5 committees to get approval from). It was so helpful to be able to see the products and have them installed quickly and safely​. Good prices for fun, safe equipment.”

At Playtime we manufactured MADE IN THE USA products, like Tiny Tots Spinner, that are safe and provides maximum kids fun. If you have a day care, preschool or learning center, give us a call. We will help you identify and install the right playground equipment for your playground.

About Gateway Learning Center

Each week we will be focusing on a different letter/sound, and number. We will focus on a different color bi-weekly and a shape per month. Each month the children will be learning Bible verses related to our theme.
Our Pre-K class will be working to meet and exceed the requirements for Kindergarten readiness for Fall 2017. We will be using the new Maryland Ready At Five Readiness guidelines to achieve these goals. They will be doing more paper–based activities to achieve this than will be done in younger–age classes. Name-writing, letter and number recognition/writing, color/shape recognition and scissor skills are some of the requirements we will achieve this year.
