our successes speak for themselves…
“The play equipment is very popular during P.E. lessons and at play times. It’s also bright, child-friendly and well made from sturdy, hardwearing materials. We were pleased with the service we received from Monster Play too - replies were always prompt and all communications were dealt with in a very professional, friendly manner. We would recommend Monster Play, as they were very flexible and, when the initial quote was a little more than we could afford, they came up with a great compromise.” Rob Thompson, Premises Manager, St Mary’s C. of E. Primary School
“The play area is a definite success – it’s well used and stimulating for the children. We take the children climbing in Wales, so it’s great to be able to emulate the same sort of activity at school. The result is aesthetically pleasing too, with lots of equipment running in parallel along the two levels, so lots of children can play at a time, which encourages healthy competition”.
Jonathan Hobbs, Principal, Hall School
“The location of the play area was changed to ensure the children’s safety. It also gave us a chance to create a more exciting space for the children. Now it’s absolutely fantastic – it’s educational as well as playful, so we use it in lessons as well as break times. In fact, it’s ridiculously popular and caters for everyone from 7 to 11 year olds. We couldn’t be happier with the result.”
Carmel Park, Assistant Head for Business.
“The Trail has been a great success – and has raised the standard of the children’s physical and social play. Their coordination and balance skills are challenged, and they gain confidence as they achieve the different movements across the apparatus. It offers them imaginative play and an awareness of space. Best of all, they love it and have a fantastic time!”
Sheila Wills, Head of Infant Department.
“The different levels in the area meant that this was a tricky project. However, we used these different gradients to their best possible advantage to help Foundation stage children develop their gross motor skills. It has been a complete success too – the children flow from their classrooms straight into the area, using it all day, every day for fun, fitness and as a key part of their education.”
Amanda Buck, Headteacher
“The children were very excited about the play area, which has provided a real focus for activities in the junior playground. They were actively involved in helping to choose the different colours and styles of equipment – and were keen to include the school logo in the final design. We are all very pleased with the finished result.”
Elaine Stollery, School Business Manager.
“The ball wall has provided children with a space for energetic sporting activity at break and lunch. They absolutely love competing against themselves and each other, and are always coming up with new ways to use the panels. In addition, it is a fantastic resource for teachers in developing the skills aspects in games lessons. It has been an valuable addition to our playground.”
Eleanor Losse, Deputy Head Teacher.
“Monster Play have interpreted the needs and challenges of our Early Years children and designed a fun and safe learning environment that can be accessed by all. Most importantly, the children absolutely love it!” Hannah Besisira, Teacher.
“All of the children love the new apparatus and many have been challenged to develop new skills and dare to try new things. The trail has ensured we always have exciting adventures on our woodland walks”. Gill Smith, Teacher.
“The equipment has certainly met with and even exceeded the childrens’ expectations - they are definitely not bored when they go out to play now! We are also really pleased to see the children managing the risks they take and challenging themselves within this safe play environment. It’s been a great success. The finished playground also looks fantastic and the children are really proud to have something different to other schools in our area.”
Debbie Keigwin, Headteacher, South Park Primary
“This unit has opened our playground up to much wider use, so over 20 children can use each side at the same time. We can now have a football match, ball skills and basketball practice happening simultaneously. It’s fantastic for playtime and in lessons, as part of the curriculum. This is why the MultiActive stood out from other recreational ball walls – it could easily be incorporated into P.E. lessons. That’s exactly what I wanted from the development and it’s already had a huge impact on the school.”
Jonathan Dey, Headteacher
"The children are delighted with our new Monster Play structure. The imaginative design presents them with interesting challenges and allows lots of children to play safely and collaboratively. They describe it as ‘awesome’! We would recommend this for its modern style and sturdy design. We also look forward to adding further elements in the future."
Wendy Garrard, Principal
“The children were very involved in the design process and now that the development is complete, it has transformed the playground and their play times. There’s so much to do for both Key Stages 1 and 2, plus it gives the younger children the means to develop further as they grow. The areas are so popular that we operate a class-by-class rota during break times. It’s been a fantastic success!”
“We knew we wanted equipment that was creative and would stimulate the children. Monster Play called on their experience and not only pulled out all the stops to install the equipment quickly, but added vision to the whole project. Their fresh, innovative ideas meant the final play scheme was even better than we had originally planned.”
“You only have to look at their faces to see how much the nursery children absolutely love their new equipment”.
Paul Smith, Headteacher
The new play area is ideal for fun at playtimes and for teaching key skills to children during P.E lessons. It is also bright, colourful and a bold, exciting addition to the existing playground. Plus, it is just one of the many enhancements that has been made throughout the school to ensure Chingford Hall received an Outstanding result during their recent Ofsted inspection.
