Types of Playground Equipment

Red Monkey Play sells a wide range of playground equipment for schools and nurseries. All our kids’ play equipment is manufactured and installed to order for your school. Our playground design service is truly bespoke, as we aim to provide high-quality wooden outdoor play equipment for schools suited for all ages and abilities. Some examples of the types of school playground equipment we have are:

Climbing frames are synonymous with outdoor school playground equipment and they’d likely be present at every school in the country. They can provide a great space for children to explore and develop social skills, and it is very important that their installation and implementation are done correctly. Not only can they be made out of cheap materials and installed in dangerous ways, but they may not encourage student development in the correct ways. We do playground equipment for schools and nurseries in the right way.

Our climbing frames provide children with the chance to develop their sensory skills as well as their role-playing skills. With our woodland playground equipment, we offer them varied surfaces and textures to stimulate their senses as well as give them new and exciting settings to play games in.

Physical development is a vital part of a child’s early years. Outdoor playtime should serve both as a fun time for kids to make memories, as well as an educational time. By blending various types of playground equipment together, we can seamlessly integrate play and learning effortlessly.

Red Monkey’s adventure outdoor play equipment units have been innovatively designed by using a combination of timber and rope, aiming to replicate a natural, challenging and enjoyable play environment. Children are encouraged to develop balance, coordination and imagination through role-play equipment.

Taking learning outdoors helps stimulate children’s imagination due to having varied forms of stimuli. From start to finish, class time should give children a chance to learn in every way possible, and this is where outdoor classrooms & shelters come in.

Varying the environment keeps things fresh for kids which allows them to remain engaged for longer periods of time. At Red Monkey Play, we offer outdoor performance areas and earth pods that allow children to participate in various fun activities within the outdoor space. With us, you can create the perfect engaging outdoor space for children and staff to listen, learn, and collaborate in unique ways.

We believe in creating outdoor spaces and play areas with innovative playground equipment that encourage physical exercise and foster cognitive development. With specific equipment designed to improve different areas of physical ability, specific areas of physical improvement can be targeted. This allows early years as well as children of all ages to learn crucial motor skills and to become more active and social together.

Our products include:

  • Playground surfacing - we can create your very own 100m sprinting lanes
  • MUGA pitches - spaces which allow an assortment of games to be played.
  • Dedicated exercise equipment - cardiovascular equipment
  • Fitness stations and frames - children can swing and climb on frames
  • Gym equipment - allows students to develop their strength.
  • Outdoor classrooms and shelters - outdoor spaces for classes and activities

How Red Monkey's Playground Equipment For Schools And Nurseries Develops Children

There is a method and science behind the school playground equipment we produce. We aim to combine play and learning in a seamless way. We do this by encouraging a range of physical, cognitive, and social, which when combined together, these forms of development can help produce a well rounded and intelligent student. Here are the methods we focus on:

From sitting up on their own to throwing a ball, children gradually develop the physical skills needed for their adult lives. Physical development includes both growth and the ability to use muscles and body parts for particular skills.

You would normally associate kids play equipment with physical development such as walking, running and climbing. While our climbing frames and trim trails do help develop these skills, we offer different types of playground equipment which support the development of students in other physical ways.

Many of our outdoor playground equipment aims to develop fine motor skills; for example, our water wall. This allows students to experiment with tools, buckets and other mechanisms on the wall, helping to develop fine motor skills which prove invaluable when it comes to writing and drawing.

Sensory development is when the senses are improved through activities. There are seven sensory processes children develop in their early years which are incredibly important for students’ overall development. The interaction of the mind and the body comes through the experiences of the senses. These experiences then contribute to brain development and result in more intelligent students.

Children can immerse themselves in a tactile world of fun and learning with our range of outdoor sensory playground equipment. Our range of products has something for children of all ages, water and sand walls with chutes and passages to examine movement and composition, to the exploration of sound with our music centre and getting mucky with our messy kitchen, perfect for curious hands that want to explore exciting new textures.

Role play is the perfect situation for children to develop their social skills and let their imaginations run wild. This is where creative students really shine. Role play gives them the chance to become a team player or lead a game based on their vision.

Outdoor wooden role play equipment is a key part of every child’s development, and our dens, houses and hideaways are the perfect places for kids to let their imagination run free. Dens and shelters can be transformed into houses, shops, nurseries, or just quiet places to settle down and relax.

Roleplay, therefore, allows students to develop their creativity and imagination whilst also encouraging emotional and social development. This is because by pretending to be someone else (or something else) they use empathy to decipher how they would think and feel.
