We have long understood that well-designed outdoor play areas are vital. The few hours children spend outdoors each week builds social and cognitive skills which help them to thrive. No matter the space available, our team knows how to create a place where children can grow.
Every type of playground feature needs to be designed right and built right. In our eyes, creating a unique playground that's bursting with opportunity includes the capability to do them all. That's why our playground range contains everything from Activity Frames through to educational numeracy & literacy play panels.
Research has shown that the benefits of sensory play includes helping the growth of cognitive pathways. Sight, sound, smell, touch and taste are an essential part of brain development and learning in the early years.
The systematic incorporation of sense stimulation, into both formal learning and play regimes, actively encourages children to memorise, anticipate, and develop impressions they will rely on as part of learning, for the rest of their lives.
By encouraging them to explore their world for themselves, they also build confidence. In addition they develop coping strategies which are a vital part of general learning, socialisation and problem-solving.
The sensible thing to do
Creating playgrounds specifically designed to stimulate children’s senses is a practical way of ensuring they continue to learn as they play.
At Playcubed, we specialise in something we call ‘Sensory Play Design’. This involves the deliberate incorporation of shapes, colours, textures and other stimuli into a play environment. We find the benefits of sensory play encourages children to explore, discover and interact with others.
These design schemes can also include ‘Sensory Planting’. As a result we introduce natural sights, sounds, smells and sensations from plants and flowers.
