Shelter & shade for nurseries – some case studies

05 August 2015

Rainy mornings or hot afternoons needn’t limit opportunities to take the EYFS outdoors. No matter how big or small your setting’s outside space, all you need in order to spend as much time outside as possible is some great shelter and shade to keep everyone dry on wet days and safe from the sun’s rays on sunny days.

It goes without saying that you can rely on Playforce to help and our award-winning design team has created a fantastic range of Shelter and Shade products in different materials, colours, shapes and sizes to suit every setting.

With outdoor classrooms and shelters, shades and sails, pergolas and parasols, we’ve designed solutions for early years settings of every shape and size. We think you’ll love our range – but don’t just take our word for it, see what these settings have to say:

Quinton Church Primary School wanted to create more opportunities for outdoor learning and play for its nursery children. We designed a multi-purpose shelter for all-weather learning for the school’s playground which has delivered some fantastic educational outcomes. Read more here.

Children at Templars Infant and Nursery School had no shelter or shade at break times. To stop them wilting in the sun or getting blown away on wet, windy days, we installed a timber shelter that now provides so much more than just a dry or shady spot. Read more here.

See how we created shelters areas for all-weather play and outdoor learning at Gwladys Street Community Primary and Nursery School. Read more here.
