Packet Request

NPPS promotes the safety of playgrounds by serving as the national clearinghouse for playground safety information. We house the largest compilation of playground-related publications and documents in the nation. We share our information with communities, child care centers, park departments, parent groups, government officials, children's organizations, schools and other educators.

NPPS has a packet of information that is designed to help you understand how to apply the S.A.F.E. concepts into your playgrounds.

This packet contains a wealth of information about supervision, age appropriate design, surfacing, maintenance, planning, accessibility, and fundraising. In addition, there are several checklists that you can use to assess your own playground! To receive NPPS's packet, please complete the form below.
