Customer case

"It's been 5 years since we built the playground, and it has been hugely positive..."

This primary school in Scotland transformed their "concrete jungle" of a schoolyard into a bustling schoolyard that improves students' well-being and attendance.

"I would definitely suggest to anybody who is the head teacher of a school to do the same thing and to provide more equipment for children to play with, it has a huge impact on attendance, behavior, confidence, friendship"

- Gayle MacDonald, Head Teacher at Corpus Christi Primary School, Glasgow, Scotland

We build playgrounds on research and children's input

Children know play - we know how play helps children develop. This blend of knowledge makes for a perfect balance of fun and beneficial school playgrounds.

Through the KOMPAN Play Institute, KOMPAN Fitness Institute, doctoral research and collaboration with the World Playground Research Institute, we include children in user testing and study how play at school supports their development throughout all ages. It's this work that ensures our playgrounds are proven to help children develop, stay active, and grow important life skills.

A good school playground is a lever on learning & better attention in class

Children need play and activity to learn in the classroom. Play is a child's way of exploring and learning about the world, discovering their own abilities, and grow as an individual. Play is intimately connected to the development of their physical, emotional and cognitive skills.

Having the right school playground equipment is directly linked to children's ability to learn and thrive in school. When climbing, children work on their logical thinking and spatial awareness; every turn on a spinner improves balance, a proven connector in building math skills; and imaginative play, made possible through a wooden pirate ship or a wooden castle playground, helps develop both social and cognitive creative skills.
