Playground Equipment For Schools

EcoPlay For Schools

Isn’t it amazing how school playgrounds can be like magical places where kids not only have fun but also grow smarter, healthier, and stronger? Studies have shown that when kids play outdoors, it’s not just good for their bodies, but it also boosts their performance in the classroom, helps them think better, and makes them better at making friends.

At Ecoplay Structures, we’re passionate about creating playgrounds that are not just ordinary play spaces, but places where the leaders of tomorrow are appropriately challenged in a physical and cognitive way. We believe that schools are key to ensuring kids get enough outdoor playtime, whether it’s during recess or outdoor lessons, where they can have fun and learn on playgrounds designed just for them.

Did you know that experts recommend kids get at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day? Let’s work together to make sure our kids get the playtime they need to thrive!

Planning for your School Playground

Creating the ultimate playground for your community or school is a breeze when you’ve got the right tools at your fingertips! Follow these three simple steps to bring joy to children far and wide.

Dream Up Your Play Area

Imagine a playground that perfectly matches the spirit of your school, becoming a cherished spot for years to come. Collaborate with one of our friendly playground consultants to craft a design that’s not only exciting but also safe and accessible.

Start by answering these questions:

  • Who will be using the playground? Consider ages and abilities.
  • How many kids will be playing at once?
  • Is there a particular theme or color scheme you’d like to incorporate?
  • Are there any extra amenities like shade or benches you’d like to include?

Explore Your Site

Just like a superhero needs to know their terrain, understanding your site is crucial for a successful playground. Our consultants will help you make the most of your natural surroundings, from trees to terrain.

Keep these in mind:

  • Is the ground slope and soil suitable for proper drainage?
  • Can you incorporate existing vegetation into the design?
  • How does the weather affect your site, like strong winds or intense sunlight?
  • Can the playground be conveniently located near amenities like parking or restrooms?

Bring Your Playground to Life

With your dreams and site analyzed, it’s time to get down to the nitty-gritty of budgeting and designing. Think about separate areas for different age groups and other design elements:

  • What style do you envision? Modern, natural, or themed?
  • What play elements will delight the kids? Swings, a freestanding climber, sensory panels?
  • How challenging do you want it to be?
  • How can you make it inclusive for all kids, with ramps, sensory play, or music?
  • Are you considering fitness elements too?
    And don’t forget to plan for future upgrades!
  • Do you have access to funding from sources like Class Wallet or can you raise money from the PTO?
With these steps, you’re well on your way to creating a playground that’ll be the heart of your community or school for years to come!
