Good Supervision:

Can good playground supervision prevent all injuries?


"Accidents" occur as a result of unavoidable and unpredictable situations on the playground.  For example, if a child is running on the playground and trips another child this is unpredictable or typical behavior consistent with normal playground interactions.  On the other hand, if a child is swinging a rope and running throughout the playground causing other children to trip over the rope this situation is both predictable and should be stopped by a playground supervisor and therefore is clearly "not an accident".

10 Tips for Improving Playground Supervision

Serious accidents which occur in schools typically happen on the playground. In fact, approximately 200,000 accidents each year send children to the emergency room for treatment of an injury which occurred on the school playground. The following tips will help you to insure that children are safe on your playground.
1. AdequateSupervision

The National Program for Playground Safety (NPPS) recommends that the ratio of adult supervisors to children should mirror the classroom ratios. If class size is at 32 then there should be one playground supervisor for each 32 children. Yet, I rarely see this ratio maintained.
