Why did you want to develop your playground?
At Ryder Hayes County Primary we had previously spent time and money developing the internal aspects of the school. The outside learning environment, however, remained uninspiring and lacked fixed resources as well as a space to shelter from the elements. We wanted to develop a playground that would meet the correct educational needs and provide a space for the children to take part in outdoor learning and play.
What were the key elements that made Playforce stand out from other providers?
We chose Playforce because it was the only company to see how the space could be used through our eyes. We needed a space that would meet the educational needs of the EYFS curriculum and the team knew exactly how to deliver that. The governors were very impressed with Playforce’s holistic design approach as they were able to see the whole ‘vision’.
