Children can benefit so much from outdoor learning – it can help boost their immune systems, increase their vitamin D levels, stimulate their brain and senses, and provide plenty of enjoyment too.
However, for all of its benefits, it can be difficult for nurseries and schools to offer outdoor learning because of a lack of space and the unpredictable weather. That’s where our outdoor classrooms come in.
Tailored to your requirements, they’re designed to help the education sector deliver the outdoor learning experience, and proactively incorporate it into their curriculums, without being hampered by the weather.
Benefits of outdoor classrooms
Our outdoor classroom canopies are delivered using our bespoke design, manufacturing and installation service and based on our industry-leading site-specific calculations. This provides you with peace of mind that your canopy is engineered to last and 100% meets your requirements. We also offer a colour-matching service too.
By creating an outdoor classroom, you can:
- Use your outdoor space in all seasons.
- Provide a stimulating learning environment all-year round.
What’s more, our wall-mounted and freestanding classroom canopies are just as effective in the good weather as they are the bad, thanks to the Melinex gel-coated roof, which protects against the sun’s harmful rays.
Wall-mounted outdoor classrooms can be fitted to directly to the side of buildings, eliminating the need for any obstructive vertical supports. With no supporting pillars or posts, these systems eliminate the risk of any potential hazards and unforeseen injuries taking place.
While our freestanding outdoor classrooms are standalone structures, meaning they don’t need to be attached to other structures for support. They can also be designed so that the supporting posts are positioned at the back, minimising the risk of obstruction and fully opening up the space beneath.
Outdoor classrooms are increasingly being used by nurseries and schools to tap into the benefits of outdoor learning all-year round. Take a look at these examples.
