Play Area Shelter at Broomfield School
Ultramarine Blue - RAL NO. 5002
Colza Yellow - RAL NO. 1021
A&S Landscape worked directly with the school to design, manufacture and install a fabric tepee canopy. The Maxima Tepee was made with Ultramarine Blue steelwork and a Colza Yellow roof to create a colourful and jolly look. Measuring 9m X 5m, the two modular tepees has created plenty of room. Plus, the waterproof material used means that the canopy can be used all-year-round.
The young Prep School pupils are already a huge fan of their new tepee. They can spend their break times outside, letting off steam and relaxing before their next activities. The teachers could also take their classes outside, without having to plan around the weather. Come rain or shine the fantastic outside space can be used and enjoyed.
Multiple studies show that children’s outdoor play is crucial for their healthy development and academic performance. This topic raises the benefits of outdoor play in early childhood on physical health, mental well-being, and social and cognitive development. It also reveals the need to change the trends so that children can have regular access to outdoor play. The extensive interventions needed to reduce parents’ fears require practitioners’ training, policy changes and improved urban planning for safer environments and natural play spaces.

In addition to the canopy, we also supplied Ratcliffe College with a surface for the area too. The rubber crumb flooring provides a safe surface for the children to play on. And the bright design used will help to stimulate the pupil’s imaginations too.
