The mission of NPPS is to empower communities to create safe, inclusive, and high quality play areas for children. We do this through research-based advocacy and education. Combining our knowledge of playground safety content and educational standards, NPPS offers high quality training opportunities.

The goals of our trainings are to assure participants:

  • Understand how to create outdoor play and learning environments that are exciting, safe, and meet the developmental needs of children
  • Recognize the importance of best practices and policies around playground supervision and maintenance
  • Comply with standards, regulatory requirements and safety recommendations
  • Explore how to expand the classroom curriculum into the outdoor learning environment

Take the first step in ensuring every child in your program has a safe, positive, nurturing, and fun play experience by further exploring training options available through NPPS.  For additional information on these training opportunities contact
