Stamp-in-Safety Playground Safety Project

2014-07-23 21:12:41 | BioPortfolio


Playground injuries are common at childcare centers. Adequate adult supervision is an important component to reducing playground injuries in preschool children. The investigators studied the Stamp-in-Safety Program, an intervention to improve adult supervision and reduce children's risky playground behaviors.


Using a non-equivalent control group design, we evaluated the Stamp-in-Safety program which increases the quality of adult supervision and rewards children for safe play. In an urban childcare center, 71 children, ages 3-5 years, and 15 teachers participated in the study. The primary outcome measures were teacher verbalizations (warnings, explanations, redirects), teacher location (core, outskirts, or fringe of playground), risk taking behaviors by children (using equipment appropriately), and number of injuries on the playground.
