A play area should be built around how children play, so that’s what we do. Learning Through Play specialises in creating imaginative and bespoke play areas that children love. We’ll come up with a design that provides a fun, safe, and exciting environment for them to enjoy. To find out more about our design and installation service, contact us in Gravesend today.

Working with you every step of the way


When we’re commissioned to complete a playground project, we take pride in offering a complete service that covers every stage from the initial design ideas to the final coat of paint that completes the build – we don’t want you to have to do a thing! We make life as simple as possible for our clients, working closely with you to ensure that you get the playground you want.

Once you are completely satisfied with the design, we'll project manage the installation, sourcing all of the materials and installing everything ourselves. Afterwards (when required) we will have our adventurous elements independently inspected by an RPII inspector to ensure it meets BS1176-1 safety standards to provide you with total peace of mind.

Make the most of playtime


A themed play area is a great way to inspire children to engage in purposeful and imaginative play. It can add an extra dimension to the way children play by helping them create a narrative that will deepen and enrich the experience – after all, playing on a scramble net is fun, but not as fun as climbing the rigging of a pirate ship! Water play transports you to the deepest fathoms of the ocean, our Discovery Cove range takes you to the sunniest seaside, and our outdoor performance areas let you become the star of the show!

Our themed play areas can take many forms. Popular themes include Discovery, Sport, Music, Nature, Learning, Water, Performance, and Adventure. Help the children in your care to make the most of their playtime with a themed play area from Learning Through Play.

Bespoke playground designs


The first step when we take on a project is a consultation. We’ll visit you to see the site, then sit down with you to talk about what you need. We’ll take into account the age and number of children who will be likely to use the play area, the size and shape of the available space, and many other factors. We don’t have a catalogue, because we don’t want to give you a standard design – we want to create something just for you.

We can manufacture custom equipment as well as scaling previously used ideas up or down to perfectly suit your space and requirements. Ultimately, the only limit is your imagination, and our team have got plenty of ideas to inspire you!

Working to your brief and budget


We understand that budget is a key concern for any client considering investing in a new play area. At Learning Through Play, we are careful to ensure that our services are as competitively priced as possible, something we achieve by working efficiently, taking charge of sourcing the right materials from trusted suppliers, and taking advantage of the experience we’ve built up over the years – we know how to do a great job at a great price.


We'll draw up a detailed proposal including drawings and a full breakdown of costs if required. Proposals can even be split over several years to spread the cost, if required. This means that you'll be safe in the knowledge that the same trusted company that started your project will be on hand to finish the job.
