The perfect play space...

...is the one you can design and build yourself! 

A play space is an open space that is led, designed and built by children and supervised by experienced playworkers.

> It is built and re-built by children during their self-directed play.

> It often includes a variety of loose parts without a pre-defined use.

> It is a space that promotes inclusivity - play is for everyone!

Using a range of curated resources and materials, play activations invite children and young people to self-direct their play, as chosen by them. Activations gently introduce risk, challenge, creativity and self-confidence.

It’s exciting to think about the possible play types that could emerge! From adventure, to belonging and seeking security, journeying, hunting and gathering, prospecting and surveying, and feeling empathy for others and the environment –natural and built – play is all around us.

Play spaces are for people of all ages, genders and abilities to play together, to connect and form relationships, and develop emotional resilience and wellbeing.

Because everyone has a right to play.

 

How it works...

We provide a quote based on the location, size, and number of children and families participating in your event.

You tell us where, when and what (and why if it's themed!), and we'll tailor a play space that responds to your needs and your participants.

If you're a community organisation, we can discuss payment options that specifically suit your set up and clientele.

Article 31

That member governments shall respect and promote the right of the child to participate fully in cultural and artistic life and shall encourage the provision of appropriate and equal opportunities for cultural, artistic, recreational and leisure activity.”
