Play supports the curriculum
Play increases well-being

Happy children want to go to school. Our school playgrounds are meticulously designed to boost children's learning, well-being and development throughout all age levels and development stages of their school years.
"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, behaviour, confidence, friendship"
- Gayle MacDonald, Head Teacher at Corpus Christi Primary School, Glasgow, Scotland
We build playgrounds on research and children's input
Children are experts on fun - we are experts on how play helps the development of children. So we mix our knowledge and make the perfect blend - fun and long lasting 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 children’s development at different ages. This way we create playgrounds proven to help children develop, stay active and grow key life skills.
A good school playground is great for learning and better attention in class
Children need play and activity to help them learn in the classroom. Play is children's way of exploring and learning about the world, their own abilities and it helps them grow as an individual. Play is intricately connected to the development of their physical, emotional and cognitive skills.
Having the right playground in a schoolyard is directly linked to children's ability to learn and thrive in school. When climbing, children work on their logical thinking and spatial awareness, and when spinning on a spinner they improve balance which is connected to the building of math skills.
Our play equipment is approved by children
That is your guarantee that your playground will keep the children coming back. Before sending our playground equipment to the market, we make one final play approval with the children. Like here, where 37 wonderful children between the ages of 6 and 11 gave the final play approval of the play GIANTS.
"It is the funniest thing, I ever tried"
