Planning a new playground
for a school

PhoneCall today on 01249 444 537

Considering a new playground for your school or nursey? Crafting a top-tier playground is pivotal for nurturing children’s growth. Children invest plenty of time at nursey or school, making the playground a vital space for them to engage, explore, and develop. Such environments are not only fun but also crucial for teaching important life lessons such as teamwork and resilience, significantly influencing their overall development in social, emotional, educational, and physical domains.

Children who don’t get enough exercise at a young age may struggle with issues like obesity and poor motor skills development, which might heighten risks of chronic diseases. These challenges can also impact a child’s social interactions, possibly leading to exclusion from group activities and sports. A supportive yet challenging outdoor learning environment enhances their cognitive, motor, social, and emotional skills. Therefore, playground designs should prioritise diverse play opportunities over mere functionality.
