Work alongside educational play experts when designing your outdoor play area

Our Outdoor Learning Consultants are playground experts who will guide you through full-scale designs and recommend products to suit your cross-curricular needs. When designing your playground, we always aim to share your vision or create one with you.

We will sit down with you, listen to your ideas, and walk through your playground before presenting a design that brings your ideas to life. With over 20 years’ experience, our consultants will recommend the best solutions and products within your budget.

With a team of former teachers, we love working with school councils and classes of children to find what their dream playground looks like. We value our end users and want to give them the best educational play experience.

Time to turn your playground dreams into reality

Following our consultation, we will draw up your plans, design your playground and communicate our proposals clearly to you. Our playground design team will give you an in-depth overview of your future playground with full-scale visualisations and 3D walkthroughs.

Everything will be presented to you in detail alongside a quotation and any accompanying information. Our consultants are on hand to talk you through your visualisations and answer any questions you may have.

For larger scale playground designs, our consultants are happy to present the scheme to you and the teachers in person. We can therefore answer any questions and explain everything in detail. We also enjoy sitting down with the children to see their reaction to our ideas and design.

Our installers are some of the most experienced in the industry… they love building playgrounds

Our install teams have completed thousands of installations within primary school and nursery settings. With years of experience, our installers understand how to work alongside children in a safe and friendly way.

We install playgrounds every month of the year and will work with you to accommodate the regularities and peculiarities of the school day.

If you choose a term time playground installation, our installers will host toolbox sessions with your children and teach your young builders about construction. From experience, children appreciate their new playground from seeing its progress from day one.

We are here to build a long-lasting relationship with your school or nursery

Following your installation, we will revisit your school for a case study and provide you with professional photos… we also have a drone to showcase your area fully.

We have a customer journey which runs through every department to ensure you receive the best customer service in the industry. This has resulted in thousands of positive testimonials from across the country. We are proud to say that one third of the projects we work on are for existing customers.

We have been ranked in the “Sunday Times Top 100 Companies To Work For” meaning our team are one of the most engaged in the country. Our happy and passionate team will always go the extra mile for you.
