Delves Infant and Nursery School 

The brief

Our Senior Design Consultant was asked to create two new outdoor areas at Delves Nursery School – an ‘Outdoor Classroom’ and an ‘Eco Zone’. The Outdoor Classroom was to feature a dedicated outdoor learning area as well as some challenging play equipment for the children. The Eco Zone was to include a calming nature area with scenic water features and an outdoor shelter for learning and relaxation.

The result

The new areas were designed by combining some of Red Monkey’s most popular play equipment with some bespoke designs created specifically for Delves – including rustic natural houses and a completely original water fountain for the new nature area. The finished Eco Zone features timber reading shelters, a great lookout platform, scenic garden paths and a charming water feature. The Outdoor Classroom area contains one of our popular Jolly Roger play units, the Island Challenge unit, and a reading corner with three reading dens and a reading circle – perfect for outdoor learning, whatever the weather.

Feedback

“The team at Red Monkey completely identified with our vision, aspirations and ambitious plans. Their professionalism and commitment was consistently exceptional throughout, from the initial pulling together of ideas through to the bespoke design, manufacturing and installation of our amazing ‘Eco Zone’ and ‘Forest Schools Area’. We now have an outdoor area that is both unique and extraordinary. We are thrilled!”
