As this playground was going in, I knew it would be special! I loved that it is different than what is mass produced. As parents toured my new center during pre-enrollment open houses - the playground was a shining jewel. The children literally ran toward what would be their new outdoor learning environment! There are choices, choices, and more choices…from the bubble viewer where two children can have a cozy exchange, to the large welcoming sandbox where a group can go on an architectural dig. I will be a repeat customer time and time again. April Pugliares, President, SmartEarly Learning Centers, North Branford, CT

Here are just a few of the organizations and standards that guide our design and manufacturing processes. ISO 9001 industry certification provides a quality management system that sets quality control measures and processes for equipment design, development, production, installation, inspection, and testing. The ISO 14001 designation certifies that our manufacturing facility is environmentally responsible and that we strive to reduce our carbon footprint every day.* All of our products are tested to either meet or exceed ASTM standards, the globally recognized leader in the development and delivery of international standards designed to improve product quality, enhance safety, facilitate market access and trade, and build consumer confidence. The Consumer Product Safety Commission informs the public of current product safety performance and recommended practices. CPSC standards are cited in the NAEYC Early Childhood Program Standards and Accreditation Criteria Guidance as a reliable source for playground safety standards. The International Playground Equipment Manufacturers Association (IPEMA) provides 3rd party product testing and validates compliance by publicly posting product validation certificates on their website. To verify product certification, visit www.ipema.org. We believe everyone should have access to play. Look for products with this icon that meet the Americans with Disabilities Act guidelines.
