Wooden play equipment to fuel the imagination

Being practical types, when Richard and Kay Frost had children, rather than buy an off-the-shelf playhouse, they decided they would make their own. When Richard emerged from his workshop, the children were delighted with the result ... and so were their friends! Very soon the workshop was busy building playhouses and other wooden structures for real customers, including schools.

The range of products quickly expanded, coinciding with a growing recognition from the education sector of the importance of outside play and providing resources to inspire imaginative play and learning. Educational Play was formed and Kay, who has a background with pre-school providers, became the guardian of products which not only look nice in the playground but act as magnets to children to enjoy, play, rest and learn together. 

We take our inspiration from all quarters, not least children and school staff. Take, for example, an idea shared with us for a structure to live in the classroom which could be used both for role play, small group teaching and fun learning. From the germ of this idea came Classroom Lofts (if Lofts are new to you please take a look here - you will love them!)

The business has expanded from Richard's workshop and is now supplying schools across the country. At the heart of all we do remains our commitment to innovative design, high quality build to exacting safety standards and the very best customer service. 

We hope you enjoy browsing the site. If our products inspire you the way we know they inspire children please do get in touch.
