We design & handcraft spectacular natural educational play experiences
At E.den we are passionate about play! We create fun, natural, educational play environments for Early Years, Key Stage 1, Key Stage 2 and beyond! We work with you and your space to design and handcraft spectacular natural educational play experiences which are: inspiring, enabling & engaging.
Our team of qualified craftsmen have been designing and constructing high quality, sustainable play environments for over 10 years – our business has grown through recommendations to what it is today! Our clients include schools, nurseries, councils and architects as well as the leisure and hospitality industry. No matter how big or small your space, let us work with you to get the most out of your project and budget!
The E.den way of thinking
Our play environments are inspired by children
Research on children's preferences shows that if children designed their own play environments their creations would be completely different to the areas called ‘playgrounds’ that most adults design for them.
Children tell us that they want their outdoor spaces to contain plants, trees, flowers, water, dirt, sand, mud, animals and insects alongside a wide variety of play opportunities. They want natural environments where they can use their imagination and stay and play all day with their friends!
That's why at E.den we take the same approach. We aim to harness the special nature of the outdoors and stimulate children's senses in a natural setting. Instead of excavating, ground clearing and flattening your outdoors, we will work with the natural contours of the land to provide a well-designed, well-organised and safe outdoor environment in which children are challenged, yet able to develop at their own pace.
The E.den way of working
Our designs maximise the fun & learning potential for children
The design of your outdoors should not be about selecting a range of outdoor play equipment and then squeezing it into the space you have. The design and flow of your outdoors forms a fundamental part of maximising the fun and learning potential for your children. Our E.den designs ensure your outdoor play area acts as a cohesive learning environment from its very foundations.
Let us surprise you with how a drab outdoor space can be transformed into an environment rich in nature and exciting educational experiences. After meeting with you to gain an understanding of your current outdoor space, our designers will provide you with a detailed 3D visual and fully itemised quotation - illustrating how your outdoors could be developed - either as a single project, or by implementation in a number of phases as budget permits.
