imaginative & creative

Learning through play is a fundamental part of early development. We can help you create imaginative and exciting spaces that encourage pupils to role play, settle disputes and build relationships. Our selection of Play Huts, Mud Kitchens and Performance Stages will enable pupils to engage with a range of opportunities to explore their inner creativity.

dens, huts & teepees

Our range of Dens, Huts and Teepees create enabling environments for collaborative play and interaction, particularly among early years pupils.

Our Teepees are a key early years resource as they allow staff and pupils to create and change their own play environment with the use of sheets, blankets or other natural resources.

Huts can be designed to incorporate chalkboards for mark making and to encourage pupils engagement with literacy and numeracy.



Our discovery range encourages pupils to learn more about their environment by creating habitats, such as Bug or Bee Hotels where pupils can observe creatures in the natural environment. 

We also have a selection of identification boards to help pupils identify mini beasts or garden birds that can be found in their playground environment.





Creating a dedicated space for nature and plants will increase pupils’ knowledge of the world and help them to understand life cycles and the importance of a sustainable environment.

Our planters come in a variety of heights and sizes depending on their use and the age of pupils who are using the area. We have designed a number of planters to include trellis so pupils can train sweet peas or beans to grow upwards.

All our planters incorporate an edge for seating so the nature space can be used for both education and relaxation.


mud, sand & water play

Providing opportunities for children to get messy is an essential part of any early years playground environment.

By incorporating our range of sandpits, mud kitchens and water play you will create a space where children can build and collaborate as they explore together.

Encouraging the development of both fine and gross motor skills as they manipulate tools and move equipment.


performance & music

Offering a dedicated space for performance, music and art will enliven your playground and allow pupils to explore and express their creativity.

Encouraging these disciplines will help to promote pupils self-esteem and grow their confidence as they engage with and entertain fellow pupils through self-expression.

the dbdplay experience

At dbdplay, we design bespoke playgrounds according to the space and the exact needs and wants of your school. The only limit is your imagination!

Because safety and durability are a top priority, all our play equipment is built from FSC approved timber, treated to stay solid through wet, cold, and frequent use for many years to come.

All expert installations are carried out by either our own team or trusted, regular contractors.

We are really happy with the work that has been carried out, it looks great and I know the children will enjoy it.

The team were fantastic, extremely professional on a school site and I found their H&S and Safeguarding to be of the highest standard.

Many thanks to them.

A huge thank you from us here at St Laurence; the trim trail was installed in super quick time with minimum fuss and was very well organised throughout. 

The two chaps were absolutely lovely and did a brilliant job.  The children are super excited to get on playing on it tomorrow!

Thank you!
