Outdoor sports are something that divides teens opinions. I remember going from heading the school's netball team to victory, to hiding out in the school toilets with my friends for fear of having to be involved in any physical activity at school. However, nowadays there is so much permanent outdoor sports equipment it would be hard to resist a 4-way ball shooter. This not only enhances hand to eye co-ordination, but also encourages co-operative play in a fun environment working as individual or part of a team. School playground equipment can be tailor-made for your specific needs. Never compromise on low priced materials such as plastics. Always ensure that the best quality parts and materials are used. Think of the safety of your children when choosing playground equipment for your school and ensure that the manufacturer has upheld all standard necessities as far as safety goes. Choose a play equipment provider that also provides equipment for local authorities, and you can't go wrong.
The first time you meet KOMPAN will be for an obligation-free meeting. We will show you examples of play and learning solutions, will be looking to understand what you are trying to achieve out of your indoor or outdoor space and what you would like the outcome to be for yourself and the children. We take a creative, design-led approach and work with all relevant stakeholders throughout the project, which could include the PTA, school governors, teachers and children in the school council. Part of the consultation is also to help you understand what is possible in your indoor/outdoor space and to foresee the number of different styles and materials the project can be delivered in.
A spokesperson at Kompan Schools explained, “Our playground equipment has been specially designed to help practitioners provide outdoor learning environments which enable children to develop and create positive relationships with others and the world around them. The aim is to support the seven pillars of EYFS learning and development, outdoors in the playground”.
It’s quite hard to sum up, what Kompan Schools is in just a few words. The Kompan Play Institute is an international network that collaborates with researchers and scientists who monitor trends and conduct studies within health, learning and social inclusion in the areas of children’s development and play.
