Play Space Assessment for Preschool

The Head Start Body Start Play Space Assessment is designed to assist Head Start and other early childhood educators in assessing the quality of outdoor play spaces for children ages 3-5. This tool helps to identify the strengths and needs of an existing play space, and serves as a basis for setting priorities and planning enhancements and improvements. Directors, managers, and educators can also use this tool to help plan and design a new play space.
