The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) sets standards for the learning and development of early years children up to the age of five. Our range of high quality playground equipment and complete playgrounds aids the development of the key EYFS prime areas, Physical Development, Communication and Language and Personal, Social and Emotional Development (PSED).
High quality and challenging outdoor learning and play activities are crucial to early year’s development. Our range of playground equipment can create a quality and stimulating environment which delivers rich learning opportunities through play. Playground equipment offers the opportunity for children to explore, experience things first hand and gain an understanding of the world around them. Early year’s playground equipment also encourages children to engage with one another which develops social skills and builds relationships.
Physical development is an important aspect of the EYFS. Playground equipment can help to build the physical development of early year’s children. As children engage in physical play it not only improves their strength but also develops self-confidence as they overcome new challenges.
Our early year’s playground equipment not only includes physical challenges such as climbing, balancing and co-ordination but our range helps to develop communication, literacy and numeracy skills. Sand pits encourage children to learn the basic concepts of maths including shapes and measurements.
Expressive arts and design can also be encouraged in the playground through the use of sand pits, outdoor blackboards and performance areas. These all provide an area for children to engage in imaginative and creative play. Early years children can explore ideas and make their own decisions.
Literacy skills can be developed through our playground equipment range. The storyteller’s chair and friendship bench provide an opportunity for children to speak, listen and read. The punctuation trail creates a fun trim trail which encourages early year’s children to learn about the different areas of punctuation whilst building balancing skills.
