Lambrook School


Outdoor play promotes a variety of health benefits without children knowing that they are getting physical exercise. This physical activity is vital to a child’s development, encouraging an active and happy lifestyle from a young age. Active children are more likely to take these healthy lifestyle habits into adulthood.


Physical activity leads to the release of endorphins, also known as the feel-good hormone, which means children have a better frame of mind following exercise. Children who are active in their early stages of school are more likely to have healthy habits later in life, build a positive relationship with exercise, while also reducing the early signs of anxiety and/or depression.


Our products are designed to promote the development of fine and gross motor skills, cognitive and social skills in children. Sensory and mark making activities within the playground helps develop fine motor control along which brings benefits to hand-eye coordination, which is linked to early literacy skills. In addition, using muscle groups to climb and manoeuvre around apparatus will aid core strength, balance, coordination, and spatial awareness.


We understand that a child’s social and emotional development is essential to lead a happy life. Our products are designed specifically to encourage children to communicate naturally through role play, allowing children to explore their emotional, psychological and social abilities.
