Early Years Education

We are a specialist design and build company for all early year, nursery and education play spaces and playgrounds.

Early Years

Our approach is simple: Working with you and your budget we build top quality, safe and compliant play areas for nurseries and pre-schools through the UK and Europe.

We are committed to ensuring that everything we do is safe and compliant whilst offering that needed ‘risk factor’ in our play gardens.

With our strong construction background, we have all the required mix of skills to build play gardens from design all the way to completion.

With in-house design capability and a fully focused ‘can do’ attitude, Greenspan offer our clients the freedom to decide exactly what they want and reduce the constraints that typically come with these projects.

We don’t have a catalogue of products. Instead, we come and listen to your requirements, understand your vision and then put together a proposal that reflects exactly what you want.

From play areas to multi use games areas and covered canopies to fully functioning additional ECO classrooms, Greenspan can bring your dreams to reality.

The Benefits of Early Years Play

Physical & Mental Development

This is a huge part of children’s life. Giving them the correct equipment and sensory play opportunities to allow them to develop is critical. Offering climbing opportunities, element of risk and body weight exercise opportunities is something that we try to incorporate and encourage into all of our playground design and play space builds.


Children need to blow off steam, and what better way than to explore, climb, feel and have fun. Sensory-rich play is high on our agenda when we’re designing an early year’s outdoor play space, considering the three prime areas of the EYFS.


Offering children, a sensory-rich outdoor space is a vital part of any early years setting. Children use all of their senses to learn, to explore their environment, explore their creativity, problem solve and so much more!

Increased Customers

After completing many early years and nursery garden design and build projects, we have many reports back from our clients to say that the development of their gardens, landscape and facilities has actually brought new visitors and clients to the nursery’s.

How Greenspan Can Help

Concepts & Design

Concept designs, mood boards and detailed drawings are all part of our design capability. We strive to keep up to date with the constant improvements as recommended by the EYFS. 

Our creativity is matched step by step with our construction experience so you can always have the peace of mind that our designs will ‘work’.

Play Design & Build

Taking advantage of our knowledge in the play industry we are fully qualified to offer advice in connection with British Standard’s EN1176 and EN1177. We can also offer advice in connection with drainage design – this is important especially when considering new sports facilities or play area space. Our project management & construction team ensure that your project is expertly built from start to finish, and delivered within the timescale agreed.
