Outdoor Play for Early Years
Designing playgrounds for early years takes specialist understanding and experience. It’s not just a case of making the ‘standard range’ a bit smaller.
Our design team understands the best ways to integrate play into the EYFS framework. We’re champions of free flow play and taking activities outside. Of laying the foundations for an active life that will combat obesity. Of allowing small children the opportunity to learn through exploration and of presenting opportunities for them to interact with others and develop social skills.
We want them to experience and learn about the world around them through play. Using mud, sand and water to see how the nature of a material can be changed when it is mixed with another. To climb, balance and learn to make decisions based on their perception of risk. To experience the thrill of sliding and swinging and of standing on top of the world, when they’ve finally reached the top.
Whether you’re a school, Ofsted-registered early years provider, preschool or nursery we’ll help you create a playground that is not only bags of fun but is underpinned by the EYFS framework and industry best practice.
Outdoor Equipment for Key Stage One and Two
As children get older they look to outdoor space and play to present increasing challenges. They want to push themselves further. To explore boundaries and take risks.
When we’re designing playgrounds for Key Stage One and Two we understand that every square foot of space counts. You need opportunities to develop the outside classroom. Play equipment that is versatile enough to be both fun and deliver curriculum learning outcomes. You need zones and spaces, where children can sit quietly and in small groups. Areas for physical activity including gross and fine motor skill development. Ideas for climbing, balancing, swinging, running, jumping and stretching. Imaginative and free play as well as opportunities for self-expression through music, performance, art and design.
With over 20 years’ experience of delivering exactly this, our playground specialists understand, above all, that you need a playground that will grow with your children. A space that allows them to develop through play and enjoying challenging themselves in a safe, learning-focused environment.
