Knocknagoney Nursery School Play Area

March 5, 2021

Knocknagoney Nursery School had a large outdoor area they wanted to revamp and breathe new life into. The local Area Sales Manager met with nursery staff and conducted a full site survey of the playground. There were ongoing discussions on what type of equipment would best benefit the children and fit into the play area. The School were keen on creating a “Small World” playground equipment theme in keeping with other existing equipment in the Nursery. There was a strong focus on developing imaginary and role play opportunities for the pupils.
The Playground equipment the school decided upon included the Cardera Columbus Galleon, Woodland Express and Carriage and Train Station Play Scene.

Customer Comment

“We are extremely happy with the play equipment- it looks amazing and it is very sturdy and should last for a long time and provide lots of fun for all the children. The service provided by the area sales manager was faultless throughout. Having someone locally based meant that advice could be given first hand in what equipment would fit the area and there was always a contact if required. Throughout the process we were updated on the progress of the order and expected delivery, which I must say , was very quick despite a global pandemic and the U.K. leaving the EU. The equipment is extremely robust and is suited to a school environment where there will be constant play activity. It looks amazing too . I would strongly recommend using Wicksteed for outdoor play equipment”
