All of our early years’ playground equipment designs and products have been developed with these aims in mind, with our nursery outdoor play equipment intended to offer a wide range of benefits, including encouraging:

  • Kinaesthetic Learning

A well-designed play area can significantly promote physical activity, excitement, imagination, social skills and positive behavioural changes, while promoting multi-sensory engagement. Our experienced advisors understand that EYFS play environments must support additional opportunities for learning outside of the classroom, as children learn in different ways and at different rates, our designs are flexible for these requirements.
