Kingswood Nursery School Transformation

Project Overview

The setting’s previous playground featured a wetpour surface and was the designated set out for the youngest children aged 2 and 3 years old. The setting described the areas as very sad, dirty and tree roots were beginning to pull it up in areas. It was time for a change and was extremely important to Kingswood that the areas needed to be an all-year-round, safe surface and playground.

As a small school without a caretaker, they needed their new area to be as maintenance-free as possible. Most importantly it needed to be fun, but with challenge and adventure for children. The setting is passionate about developing the children’s skills and encourage them to take managed risks.

The Outcome

During the consultation the Playground Consultant discussed objectives and the setting’s vision for space and a water feature was key. It is a great way to develop upper body strength, somewhere for the settings mud kitchen and the children had told us they wanted a tunnel and slide!

The project included:

  • Grass tunnel
  • Water Rill
  • Water Play and Cobbles
  • Surfacing
  • Grass Storage Cubes
  • Multi-Role Play Building

“We met with several companies and asked them to help us make our plans into reality. We felt that Timotay had truly listened to what ideas we had and then had improved on them, designing a beautiful space that captured our vision.

The consultant who worked with us was always on the end of the phone to answer queries from us and from Governors. She came back for repeat visits until we felt we got it just right! ”

Client Feedback

Bernice Jackson said “The installation happened over partial lockdown! The various teams we worked with were all courteous and obliging, working around all the risk assessments we had in place. Joe would always send emails and leave messages to keep us informed every step of the way…”


The children love the new space. The area has surpassed our expectations and gets a gasp of approval from everyone who sees it. The water feature in the summer was so much fun; it was wonderful to see the children running around on bare feet.

I cannot recommend Timotay enough. They truly want you to be pleased with your project and ensure that your plans come to life.

We are delighted with our new space, it was worth every penny.
