When you update your daycare, you need to have areas outside for kids to play on. A great way to keep kids active outside is to have an area paved for them to play basketball on or to draw on with chalk. The following guide walks you through a few things to know about having a paved area created:
Consider the Size of the Paved Area
You first need to consider how large you want the area to be. You want to be sure that you still have plenty of space for children to play on the outdoor equipment while creating enough room for kids to be able to dribble and run while playing a game of basketball.
Consider the Thickness of the Pavement
Many people make the mistake of having the asphalt that is used to create a paved area laid too thinly. The thinner the layer of asphalt is, the less it will cost, but the less durable it will be. The thicker the asphalt is, the longer it will last and the less maintenance you will have to do on it.
Consider the Edges of the Paved Area
You do not want the sides of the paved area to simply drop off. This could create a safety hazard for the children. It is best to have the edges of the paved area rounded so that there is a smooth transition from the edges of the area to the grass around it.
Consider When You Want the Paved Area Created
When you have the paved area created, you need to be sure that there are not any children around because they could get hurt accidentally while the pavers are doing their job. Work with the pavers to see if they can create the area for you after the daycare closes or on the weekends so that there are no children present when the area is created.
When you meet with the pavers, they will be able to walk you through the options that are available to you. They will take measurements and give you an estimate for what the entire job will cost. When you get the estimate, you are not obligated to have the work done. Let the pavers know if you need to wait a little while before having the area created so that you can save more money to pay for it. The pavers will be willing to come back during a time that is convenient for you.
