playgrounds for nurseries and early years

Our playgrounds help little ones get active and ignite their imaginations

building minds, muscles, and motor skills

Everyone knows playgrounds should be fun! But we believe they should also help the children who use them to learn and grow...

At dbd, we're committed to linking our school and nursery playground designs to learning and development objectives. Whether we're building Climbing Frames to develop growing muscles, Mud Kitchens to spark creativity, or Sandpits for constructive play.

what our customers say

Our garden is now truly an all-year-round place to learn, explore & play.

Little Willows Nursery, Bath

active outdoor play equipment for early years

Our Climbers, Trim Trails, and Play Towers are designed to aid physical development as children balance, jump, and slide.

Functional play performs an important role in early years development, so bring on the big play equipment!

All of the equipment we stock is made from sustainable, high-quality timber, treated for durability so children can continue to enjoy it for many years to come.

opportunities for imaginative play

We love building fantastic playground landscapes which spark creativity in young children.

Tunnels and Play Grass markings can help children to imagine new surroundings. Play Grass also enables play areas to be used all year around, no more "stay out of the mud!"

Our Sandpits, Water Walls, and Mud Kitchens, on the other hand, give children a chance to create and problem solve independently.

We also supply outdoor learning environments including Shelters and Outdoor Classrooms.

those extra details...

So often, it's those finishing touches which make all the difference.

We don't only work with big ideas. If you need Playground Storage or Seating, or if you need your playground to work around an established routine, we can help with that too.

At dbdplay, we never cut corners. Our guarantees reflect our commitment to finding solutions that work for you in the long term.

“Learners stayed out here all playtime - which they do not usually do. They have been playing competitions with me”

“They enjoy exploring it so much they don’t want playtime to finish”

“It’s so much better! The children are happy and have a nice area to sit with their friends and equipment to play on”

We just wanted to thank you for our fabulous new play surface! 

We love it and cannot wait to see the children's reactions this morning. 

 Wow! So exciting. 


Batheaston Church School


We are absolutely thrilled with the new play equipment which was installed over the Easter holidays.

The equipment includes lots of different sections, and the ground area around the equipment has been levelled out and resurfaced, making it a much more usable space. 

Thank you.
