Default Playground Safety Research Study

With permission from the director of this forum, I would like to let all Preschool Directors know about the following opportunity for your center to participate in the evaluation of a new playground safety program. I am posting this on behalf of my research assistant.

Join in research thatís keeping children
safe and happy on the playground!

We invite you and your playground supervisors to join with other centers who are evaluating our playground safety program in a research study.

Stamp In is a new multimedia program that helps playground supervisors recognize, reward and reinforce preschool children for using safe and friendly behavior. This program is being developed and tested by Brion Marquez (IRIS Educational Media, Eugene, Oregon) and Dr. David Schwebel (University of Alabama at Birmingham) and with funding from the Centers for Disease Control*.

Hereís how you can get involved:
1. Implement the FREE Stamp In program in your center for four weeks in which children receive fun recognition stamps for safe and friendly playground behaviors.
2. Recommend up to five of your preschool teachers who might be interested in responding to online questionnaires about the program.
3. Allow us to select one of the teachers you recommend to fill out two online questionnaires over four weeks about their experiences using the program.

Each center will receive $100 for implementing the program, and the participating teacher will receive $50 for time spent filling out questionnaires.

I am confused (Don't worry, it's normal for me ) but are you asking the providers on this forum if they want to do something or is this geared towards child care center directors only?

It must be close to the end of the day. I have read your post again but I still am not seeing clearly....

it looks like it is geared towards centers, as the one line states they are looking for up to 5 teachers to participate in filling out forms/surveys.


I am a little confused too, but again its me so whats new...

I would love to get involved with this, however NYS says it's not developmentally appropriate to reward kids with ANYTHING (yes, even stickers) tangible. Crazy, I know!

Default Still looking for participants

I am reposting this as our research study is well underway and we are still looking for centers to participate. We have about 20 centers participating so far, but need about 30 more! Please join other daycare centers to learn about this innovative playground safety program.

Default Still need more centers!

Hi Everyone,
I'm hoping by posting again, more people will see this. We need about 12 more centers to participate in this study in the next couple of weeks. Please feel free to contact Lisa Cassidy at the above noted phone number or click on the link to take you to the eligibility questionnaire.

We're getting great feedback about our program, we just need a few more people to evaluate it. Won't you help us?

Thanks!!!
