Safe Toddler Swing Set

Before you decide to go out and get your toddler swing set, the following safety tips might be helpful. A child under 3 years old should be put in a toddler swing set, which provides support on all sides and has restraints that can be fasten. Choose swing seats made from rubber or plastic rather than wood or metal

Make sure that there are no sharp points or edges in the swing set, Check swing set regularly to see that equipment are in good condition. Make sure a toddler swing set is at least two feet off the ground, so a child can’t crawl into it herself.

You should have sand or pea gravel, or a rubberized surface under the toddler swing set. These materials absorb the impact of a fall much better than dirt or grass. Make sure a child outdoor swing set is set up at least a couple of meters or about six feet away from any building or fences

Position the swing set so a child doesn’t have to cross in front of a swing to get to other equipment. You can consider creating a border of sand or another landscaping element to remind children not to run in front of the swings. Check that bolts don’t protrude and “S” hooks are closed. Place the child swing set in a shaded area, so that surfaces won?t get too hot

Adult supervision is necessary to make sure children are safe. Children should always sit in the swing, not stand or kneel. Inform the child to hold on tightly with both hands while swinging. When finished swinging, child should stop the swing completely before getting off. Children should stay a safe distance from other children on swings, being careful not to run or walk too close to the front or back of moving swings.

Only one person should be in one swing at any one time. Swings are designed to safely hold one person only. Children should be reminded not to push anyone else in the swing or allow others to push them. Avoid swinging empty swings, and to never twist swing chains
