As nursery play area specialists we offer various playground services such as creating designs, installing safety surfaces and maintenance of existing play areas. Our experienced staff can help each individual client to create a bespoke design for their recreational surfacing which provides added safety qualities to protect the children from injuries. The specification and designs of impact absorbing nursery play surfaces will vary depending on how the area will be used and the appearance the client wants.


The most popular safety flooring used in nurseries within the UK is wetpour rubber flooring which can come in bright colours with unique graphic designs such as cartoons and animals which engage children’s minds to encourage learning and early development. Other impact absorbing flooring types that can be used in play areas for younger children include bonded rubber mulch and rubber grass mats, each of which give the area a more natural looking appearance.

What Surface can be Install for Nursery Play Areas?

There are a number of surfaces that are ideal for nurseries. Since young children will be playing on the area, a soft, safe nursery play area surfacing is recommended – especially if you have play equipment within the area. Some of the popular surfaces that we install for play areas in nurseries include wetpour, rubber mulch and artificial grass. Rubber mulch and synthetic grass offer a more natural appearance. Whereas wetpour often comes in bright colours with graphics for educational games.

In the event you have play equipment at your nursery, you will need to think about having safety surfaces. We can alter the depth of these surfaces to meet specific Critical Fall Heights. This helps to ensure the safety of the kids.

Nursery Graphic Inserts

We install nursery playground graphics to your play space as well. These allow children to learn to play together at a young age and take part in educational games. There are various designs we can install including hopscotches, number grids, alphabets and more. 

We’re able to supply the nursery graphics in a number of colours depending on your individual preferences. It is great to have colourful graphics installed which will make the kids want to take part in the games and activities.

How is Nursery Play Surfacing Installed?

Our team complete installations to a top standard at reasonable prices. Once an appropriate sub base has been installed, our team can lay the surfacing of your choice. We install shockpads for surfaces like artificial grass to make the surface suitable for nurseries. A shockpad will allow for a safer flooring in the event the kids fall over. Nursery playground installation should be completed by professional installers with years of experience. If you don’t have a professional company do the construction, you may find the play area will not last as long.

How are Nursery Play Areas Maintained?

We also offer nursery play area maintenance to make certain the facility is kept safe for young kids. The servicing which we can carry out includes minor repairs, cleaning, shrinkage repair and resurfacing. We are specialists within the industry and will make certain to complete the maintenance services to the very best standards.

We recommend that you carry out routine inspections to ensure the play area is safe for use. If you find any damages in the surface, it is important to fix them straight away in order to prevent costly repairs. Repairing the surface quickly means that you can also avoid children hurting themselves. Otherwise they could fall over due to tripping on rips on the surface.

Recreational Flooring Designs

We can design kindergarten recreational areas in all of these surface types. We’ll also try to fit in with existing colour schemes and playground equipment. The aim is to create an exciting outdoor area which helps kids to develop fundamental physical and mental skills. Over the years we have worked with numerous EYFS school organisations to install specialist safety surfacing through a quick and simple construction process which lets the children get back to playing as soon as possible. We carry out the full installation including:

  • Groundwork preparation
  • Laying an SBR shockpad layer
  • Laying an EPDM wearing course layer
  • Installing coloured graphic designs

This type of surface is perfect for a number of facilities including nurseries, kindergarten, primary schools and public parks. The kids can be kept safe when playing on equipment and running around the area due to the impact absorbing properties from the wetpour. We have dealt with a number of kindergarten projects throughout the UK. Therefore our team will be happy to come up with a bespoke design which suits you and your budget.

Make sure you contact our team if you would like some help with the different options for children’s safety surfacing. We will send you some product information and case studies on the various products available for nursery facilities. One of our experts will also be able to provide you with a price for the work you require.

EYFS Playground Specialists

We are a professional company with experience in designing and installing surfaces for recreational facilities, but our nursery play space specialists can also offer advice and services for maintenance and repairs to existing flooring. This could include fixing small areas of damage within a wetpour surface, or repairing shrinkage where the rubber has pulled away from the edging. If the flooring only has a small area of damage, we may supply a wetpour repair kit which enables you to fix the problem yourself by cutting out the localised surfacing with the problem and filling it in with a new application of rubber.

In order to prevent damage and problems with Early Years playground surfacing, it’s important to carry out regular proactive maintenance from nursery play space specialists. This is to ensure that the flooring stays clean and does not become hazardous for the children who use it. This sort of maintenance can include frequently brushing the surface. We do this to get rid of potential contaminants like litter and natural matter. You could also apply gentle jet wash the lift off any dirt which may be on the surface.

Reducing Damage to the Surface

Proactively managing the cleaning of your recreational flooring will help to prevent the pores from blocking up and leading to flooding, as well as stopping any contamination and damage to the surface. As EYFS playground specialists we can also supply other maintenance equipment like liquid de-icer which is applied to a wetpour surface to prevent it becoming slippery in cold weather so the facility may be used safely all year round.
