During the structure of a busy school day educators look for opportunities for open-ended, imaginative play. This time gives students space to be creative, explore and put into practice the learnings of the day. It also provides time for rest and exercise.
A well designed playground will avoid being too prescriptive, too easy. Physical challenges are best to be just out of reach with scope for more challenge throughout the school year as the body and mind grow.
Stone, wood, loose part and nature play create a natural world in which for students to become immersed.
At Everything Outside we offer a one-stop-shop design and construction company of showcase, stunning projects for schools on the Gold Coast, Brisbane, Sunshine Coast and regional Queensland.

A Reggio Emilia playground is designed around a circular central meeting place and then emanates outwards and uses elements found in nature for children to use to create imaginative play.
Outdoor kitchens with utensils with a sandpit nearby can generate countless variations of role playing and imaginative play. Physical movements of climbing, jumping, rolling and crawling can be facilitated deliberately through the choice of larger wooden equipment.
A tinker table, complete with baskets of loose materials can encourage the construction of wonder-filled creations.
Reggio Emilia is also ideally suited to providing sensory play, with tactile engagement of the senses and cosy spaces of rest.
We design and construct Reggio Inspired playgrounds.
Our Reggio Inspired designs include the supply of loose parts baskets which can contain, Australian Native seeds, Coconuts, Pine Cones and many other assorted loose parts items for the children to play with.
