Making sure that there was something for every child to enjoy took priority when designing this project alongside the teachers. To do this, together we decided that it would be fantastic to include a variety of timber play resources to offer different categories of play.
Imaginative and creative play was considered to allow innovative minds to spring into action. To do this, we included a drawing table so the little ones could paint and create whatever their imagination decides!
Construction play is a huge part of this entertaining area. It is beneficial in early years development as it sharpens crucial skills and stimulates creativity. A builder’s yard, construction pit and bespoke sandpit became a part of this scheme, granting children the opportunity to build until their hearts content.
Messy play also plays a part in this outdoor learning environment as a messy corner kitchen is situated in the bark area; suggesting that the children can generate mess all day long. Mud pies coming your way!
We couldn’t miss out nature play, so it was decided that a mini bug hotel and nature table would be the perfect solution to fulfill this category of play.
Last but certainly not least, is water play. The H shaped water wall will get the school kids thinking about different levels of fluidity and measures. Excellent for early years advancement as they pump water through the channels and watch as it flows down to the bottom of the wall.
The above is just a handful of products that have settled into their new home at Hillcrest; the children will definitely be kept busy during play time!
