Types Of Outdoor Playground Equipment

Many options are available when selecting play equipment, which might feel daunting at first. However, investing time in research upfront will pay off in the long run. The assortment of educational resources comes in diverse shapes and sizes to suit your playground. Moreover, if you have a specific piece of playground equipment in mind, we can make it bespoke to fit into your space seamlessly.

Our Nature Outdoor Play Equipment for schools and nurseries offers an exciting introduction to the marvels of the natural world through enjoyable and interactive experiences.

With our engaging range of playground equipment, children are inspired to explore, engage, and let their curiosity flourish, learning valuable lessons in science, gardening, and creativity along the way.

Ensuring children maintain physical fitness is essential for promoting a healthy lifestyle, crucial to their development and growth. By integrating our gym equipment into your environment, children are motivated and empowered to engage in physical activity. Through the intuitive use of our fitness playground equipment, children’s balance, strength, and coordination are improved. Check out some of our playground sports & fitness equipment below:

Climbing frames are a fundamental feature of outdoor playground equipment in schools, commonly found in the majority of schools and nurseries across the UK. They’re an excellent opportunity for children to develop their exploration skills, social interaction and communication with their peers. However, there have been instances where such equipment is constructed from cheap materials or installed improperly, posing safety risks.

We at Red Monkey Play possess the expertise and experience to ensure such mishaps are avoided, recognising the significance of fostering student development safely and effectively.

Our climbing frames contribute to children’s development in two significant ways: encouraging role-playing skills and sensory development. With our Woodland Range, children encounter a variety of textures and surfaces, stimulating their senses and offering an environment for play and learning.

Our range of outdoor classrooms & shelters is crafted to ignite children’s imagination while offering a fresh setting for learning. Experiencing a variety of stimuli during lessons can reinforce their learning.

Introducing different learning environments keeps things fresh, enabling students to remain engaged with the material and helping their comprehension. Our range of earth pods, gazebos, and outdoor performance areas inspires children to unleash their creativity in an enjoyable, stimulating, and secure setting. These spaces encourage collaboration and create new learning opportunities for both children and teacher.

How Red Monkey's Outdoor Playground Equipment Develops Children

Our playground equipment is crafted to integrate play and education, encouraging the development of physical, cognitive, and social skills within a safe environment. Developing these skills contributes to the formation of well-rounded and intelligent students. Our approach focuses on various methods, including:

From rolling onto their stomach for the first time to playing catch, children gradually develop physical skills that are essential in their daily adult lives. Physical development encompasses the growth, coordination, and use of muscles throughout the body to perform various activities and tasks.

While playground equipment undoubtedly contributes to children’s physical development, particularly in activities like walking, running, and climbing, Red Monkey Play takes a distinctive approach to further improve learning and development.

Many of our custom playground pieces play a significant role in refining fine motor skills, from tying shoelaces to using cutlery, to being creative with colouring pencils. One such piece of equipment that excels in enhancing these skills is our Interactive Water Wall. This innovative apparatus enables children to experiment with chutes, pulleys, buckets, and various other mechanisms, encouraging their curiosity and inspiring exploration using their hands and fingers.

Roleplay provides children with an ideal platform to enhance their social skills, understand verbal and physical cues, and unleash their imaginations without constraints. It’s a realm where the more imaginative students can truly shine, allowing them to explore whether they excel as team players or leaders.

In playground setups, wooden outdoor role play equipment plays a pivotal role and holds significant value in every child’s development journey. Our range of dens, houses, and hideaways serve as great places for children’s imaginations to roam freely. These structures can effortlessly transform into hospitals, schools, shops, or a place to be quiet, calm down, and relax.

Engaging in role play not only promotes creativity and imagination but also emotional and social development. By pretending to be someone or something else, children learn to navigate appropriate emotional responses and rational reactions, developing empathy and decision-making skills.

Sensory development involves the reception and organisation of information through our senses, which can be stimulated through various activities. During their early learning years, children develop seven sensory processes that significantly influence their overall development and shape their interactions with the world.

Our outdoor sensory playground equipment offers play that engages children’s senses, improving brain development and intelligence. Dive into a world of fun and learning with our diverse range of outdoor sensory play equipment suitable for children of all ages.

Examine the movement and composition of water and sand using interactive walls, discover the wonders of sound through our melodious music centres, and explore different textures while making mud pies at our messy kitchen stations, our equipment encourages curiosity and hands-on exploration of sensory stimuli.
