This site has been created to educate and bring about support in making Pier Plays a reality for all NPS students.

The benefits of daily physical exercise, for both adults and children, have been well-documented over the years.

Research from the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention supports recess and exercise. It reveals that exercise: 

  • Supports social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development
  • Improves academic achievement and attention in the classroom
  • Reduces anxiety and depression and promotes positive mental health
  • Reduces obesity
  • Improves concentration, memory, and classroom behavior

This site has been created to educate and bring about support in making Pier Plays a reality for all NPS students.

The projected start date of the project is fall 2018 with a completed installation for the beginning of the New School Year -- September 2018.

Research shows that outdoor free play gives kids many valuable benefits, including the development of physical, emotional, social and cognitive skills.

The Pier School has never had a formal playground and the time has come to give our students the outdoor recreational experience that they need and deserve.

NPS is working with KOMPAN, the world’s No. 1 playground supplier. They are skilled and knowledgeable about designing recreational areas from the ground up to improve childhood health and learning. Their compelling design offers high play value, uncompromising safety, unique innovation, and long-lasting quality.
