Presenting the Buddy Bench as a Playground Tool…
The Buddy Bench by Playcraft® Systems
The buddy bench is a simple idea to eliminate loneliness and foster friendship on the playground.
Maybe a child is new to your school, or their friends are absent that day, or a bully keeps picking on them.
EXCLUSION Being excluded based on physical or mental differences is a common problem faced by children in school. Exclusion often leads to bulling.
BULLYING More than 80% of bullying isn’t reported to adults out of peer pressure. Or having witnessed the event, but being unprepared to do something about it.
INCLUSION Kids form their own social structure in school naturally. But giving kids the tools and training to combat bullying and create an inclusive school climate of their own is important.
EMPATHY Training to respond emphatically, kids must see themselves as people who care and value others’ thoughts and feelings.
DIVERSITY By learning about differences in others, kids are more accepting of this diversity and make accommodations.
FRIENDSHIP BUILDING With a little knowledge and training, a new world opens to children with friendships the might have never been.
PLAY UNITES US By giving kids the framework to develop empathy and generosity towards others, an aperture to a bright future is created.
The Playcraft® Buddy Bench is the perfect playground tool.
