Active Play Equipment

For many students, outdoor recess and indoor playtime are the best parts of the school day. Incorporating active play equipment engages students’ minds more and gets their bodies moving. To have a fun, imaginative, and active period of play, kids need safe and long-lasting active play equipment for both indoor and outdoor settings.

Shields Childcare Supplies is proud to offer you unique choices that are the right mix of price and space. We stock indoor and outdoor active play equipment from top American manufacturers, including Little Tikes classics, KidStuff PlaySystems, and UltraPlay.
