Why did you want to develop your playground?
Our old playground at Fitzjohn’s lacked inspiration for the children and didn’t have any activities that developed motor skills. The outside environment has a huge influence on play and is particularly important for the development of boys. That’s why we wanted to create a safe and fun outdoor space where the children could thrive. We also wanted to develop the playground into a combined space for the Nursery and Reception class to play in together.
What were the key elements that made Playforce stand out from other providers?
Playforce has a much more practical approach than most other providers. They, like us, want to get children outside to learn and play. The equipment that they offer allows children to be imaginative and it can be used in a variety of different ways. The layout that the team designed with us means that there is space for other activities and bike riding, alongside the equipment. Of the different providers we looked at, Playforce had the most appealing products and service.
