Many schools are struggling to make the most of their outdoor space, despite the widely reported benefits of learning and play outdoors. The design & construction process begins with consideration of learning and play needs, involving children, staff, and school communities. Developing school grounds leads to more creative learning and better awareness of the environment, an increase in academic achievement and a reduction in bullying, vandalism & antisocial behavior, along with children having more fun.
