They participate in the development of their motor skills thanks to the proposed playful activities: climbing, crawling, hanging on, handling… Play equipment also allow sensory experiences such as sliding, balancing, height… The BABY range has been developed to specifically meet the expectations of safety of professionals working with young children.

2 # Outdoor play equipment allow older children to continue learning in a fun way. Thematic of the MINI range around numbers and alphabet is perfectly consistent with the educational universe. The play and handling panels complement the learning objectives while having fun: learn to tell the time, recognize the solar system, count with an abacus, associate colors, and discover the braille alphabet…   

3 # Recreation is also an outlet for kids! After an intense brain focus during teaching time, recreations are above all moments of intellectual discharge and oxygenation over short periods of time. The multiplication of play points helps to spread the flows and optimize play times.

Encouraging movement, stimulating desire, is an integral part of the design of a playground and requires real know-how so that everyone enjoys it.

5 # Collective play equipment promotes the development of skills other than educational ones: physical, psychomotor, coordination of movements, but not only. They encourage children to dare, to challenge themselves, to surpass themselves, to play with others… with everyone else thanks to inclusive playful activities!
