Paper Highlights

  • Children’s constantly changing proximities to each other at the playground were collected using new sensor technology.
  • Running, jumping, climbing (i.e. exercise play) during recess at the playground were related to higher preschoolers' social competence.
  • Also longer durations of the interactions, and smaller social groups were related to higher social competence in preschoolers.
