The farm functions uniquely as both a workplace and a home. For children, the entire farm may be seen as their place to explore and play. It takes time and guidance for them to recognize and understand the risks that surround them. It is not always possible to provide close supervision on the farm. One solution to this challenge is to provide a designated and well-designed Safe Play Area.
A Safe Play Area physically limits the child’s exposure to hazards on the farm. Under adult supervision the child can safely experience the stimulation that play provides for growth within a safer environment.
