Play Together. Play Smart. Play S.A.F.E.™

The National Program for Playground Safety Kid Checker program helps children understand the importance of playground safety, empowering them to check for dangers before using the playground.

Developed from national guidelines and our S.A.F.E.™ Playground Injury Prevention framework — Supervision, Appropriate Environment, Fall Surfacing, and Equipment Maintenance — the Kid Checker program is to be used by children.


How to Use the Kid Checker Program

  • Review the worksheet with children and discuss the importance of playground safety. 
  • Ask children to become a Kid Checker. 
  • Take the children to the playground to the playground and answer the questions on the worksheet.

The Kid Checker program is an excellent classroom tool and can be used in conjunction with our Playground Safety Lesson Plans.
