    Peaceful Playground at Garden Grove


    Peaceful Playground is a playground system designed to put an end to most playground conflicts. Peaceful Playground teaches students important life skills using these six key principles:

    1. Teach students a consistent universal set of rules so that there are fewer disagreements.
    2. Teach new games to all students so that they have more choices.
    3. Teach all students the skills needed to solve conflicts (walk/talk/rock, paper, scissors).
    4. Provide adequate playground equipment. (New equipment has been purchased for each grade level.)
    5. Provide universal and consistent expectations and positive reinforcement for good sportsmanship.
    6. Mark the playground with new-age appropriate games.
