Earlsdon Day Nurseies in Coventry had a large outdoor garden play area which did not provide the type and range of play and learning facilities they wanted for the children. As a result they asked us to visit and to come up with suggestions and designs to transform the garden into a new colourful, varied and stimulating outdoor play area for their children. Once we had fully assed the existing play area and discussed our ideas with the Earlsdon Day Nurseries management team we then set about transforming the play area into a fun environment where there were a variety of items for the children to play with. The installation included:-
- a large polycarbonate roof canopy to create an all-weather covered play area
- a custom-made corner gazebo/outdoor classroom with decking floor, half shiplap timber sides, low-level fixed benches and a feature brush reed roof with heavy duty exterior grade plywood and water-proof membrane underneath
- a multi-activity play tower with steps, infants slide and two rock wall ramps
- a Wendy/role play house
- a selection of digging and growing planters.
To complete the project we created a new waste/bin storage area, installed feather edge fencing with matching gates and re-surfaced a large area with ocean blue wet pour safety surface with a selection of coloured shapes and graphics.
