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.
This accessible play area was designed and installed by Playcubed at Woodlands School in Leatherhead. The school caters for students with special educational needs. They were looking for a company they could work closely with ensuring the resulting play space gave real value to the pupils.
Through an extensive design process, we were able to arrive at this impressive result. The area features many sensory play elements and surfacing variations to provide a selection of textures. The sunshine panels splash colour across the area to aid visual development, and the playground telephones provide for vocal and listening skills.
The area was funded by generous student parents, who joined us for a very pleasant opening day where the play area was opened by two well-known TV characters.
