Learning Through Play’s aim is to design and build beautiful spaces for children to explore and learn. We truly believe that we can get the most out of any outside space and deliver the best design for your budget. We want to contribute to the future of landscaping in schools, which we think means combining functionality, longevity, risk play, imagination and aesthetics. We draw inspiration from the natural world, modern landscape design and everyday life to create playgrounds the likes of which we never had when we were growing up! We like to design from a child’s perspective giving us wonderful freedom to understand how they will use the space and what will be important in THEIR new playground. We also understand what matters to the teachers and appreciate that it isn’t just a children’s playground but an extension to the classroom and a valuable learning facility.

Friendly and experienced

We enjoy meeting with new schools because every outside space is different! For us to offer the best advice it is important for us to take a look at your space and understand how you would like to use it. From this meeting you will discover that we have a strong background and depth to the ideas we have. This is because we have many years’ experience in landscaping within schools and have come to understand what works and what doesn’t! Learning Through Play offers more than a catalogue of ideas, we offer the reassurance that those ideas will work.

Award winner

We visit so many schools that under use the space they have available or have suffered from poor playground design in the past. It is because of this that we have a drive and motivation to deliver the best for these areas. It was a privilege to be recognised in the BALI 2013 National Landscape Awards for redeveloping a reception years outside space. When we started the project there was only grass and tarmac. Go and see how the Sebright Project looked once we had finished in Our Work.
