Our Early Years Playground Development


We’ve made some exciting new developments to our young children’s outdoor learning environment.

For role play, we have installed a Mini Performance Stage with Chalkboard. This excellent open-ended resource encourages pretend play and develops our children's understanding of the world.

We also installed an energising Harter Fell Climber to extend the physical play opportunities presented to the children: they can now swing, climb, step and balance in a safe environment!

Surrounding the new climbing frame is an excellent Roadway to provide them with a dedicated space to race their bikes, trikes and scooters.

For this project, we worked with Pentagon Play who design and install outdoor learning environments for schools and nurseries.
