Schools and nurseries looking for new ways to make learning fun and exciting can now spark children's imaginations with amazing ChildsPlay Education mats from leading play surfacing specialist Notts Sport.
Installed as part of a ChildsPlay system, the design possibilities for mats made from Notts Sport's world-renowned VHAF NottsSward synthetic turf are limitless.
Notts Sport can offer expert advice on creating an educational area using ready-made patterns and innovative designs, or alternatively, clients can see their own ideas brought to life using the latest computer technology.
In the space of a single playtime, for example, adventurous children could go on a journey of discovery around the globe on a world map play mat, or even planet-hop on a surface representing the entire solar system!
Chairman of Notts Sport, Shaun Patrick, said: "With our palette of 15 vibrant colours there is unlimited potential for patterns and games and we can create a bespoke ChildsPlay Education mat to suit a school or nursery's requirements perfectly.
"Freeform patterns from the general play area can flow into more conventional games such as chess and hopscotch, while distance markers, maps, letters and numbers can give children the opportunity to challenge themselves individually or in groups.
"Because the range of designs is infinite, children who will use the play area can be invited to put forward their own ideas to be considered by the school or nursery for incorporation into the overall design. The only limit is their imagination!"
The highly-adaptable ChildsPlay system is the perfect way to refurbish an existing, run-down playground or to create a brand new play area from scratch.
Mounds, slopes and hollows can be incorporated into the design - and whatever colour or form it takes, the textured, tactile VHAF NottsSward artificial turf carpet has great sensory appeal.
The surface and underlying elements of the system combine to offer a playground that is clean and quick-draining even after heavy rain, and is resistant to cutting, fire and graffiti. It also requires minimal maintenance over its long lifetime.
With the new, lightweight NottsBase EPP tiles providing a specialist base layer, ChildsPlay is ideal for fast installation and offers enhanced safety with critical fall height protection of up to three metres.
And including a ChildsPlay Education mat in the design offers further opportunities for play providers to create a stimulating and exciting learning environment.
With free advice from the experts at Notts Sport, clients can be sure of making the right design choices for their project.
Shaun commented: "Creating a ChildsPlay area is a fun and exciting project, and we offer free guidance to our customers every step of the way, ensuring they get the very best from their playground facilities.
"Our ChildsPlay Education mats offer added value to playtime as children can explore an environment designed specifically for them, having fun and learning at the same time."
