With the prevalence of the Department of Education’s continued drive to provide constantly accessible (regardless of the weather), engaging, outdoor facilities to aid child development and help fight child obesity. Here at Great Grass we understand the challenges that educational providers face with these requirements such as:

 General lack of facilities and natural areas
 Bare, muddy and rough natural surfaces
 Messy environments, even dirtier uniforms and children due to the weather
 Increased risk of accidents, injuries and more paperwork with H&S assessments
 Increased maintenance costs
 Funding gaps regardless of OFSTEDs “Limited funds must not prevent progress” approach
 Desire to achieve OFSTED’s outstanding rating

“We had a very large area to cover and Great Grass accommodated our
needs very professionally and punctually. The children love this surface to
play on, there is next to no maintenance and no mud!

I would recommend summer grass, not only for its visual appeal but also its
durability” Director, Kaleidoscope Day Nurseries

The Department of Education & OFSTED highlight the significance of PE and
outdoor activities

“Outdoor environments are as valued and important for young children’s wellbeing and development as the indoor environment.”
“Young children should be outdoors as much as indoors…”
“Ensure that children have opportunities to be outside on a daily basis all year round.”
“Children must have access to an outdoor play area: rain does not stop outdoor play… Ofsted inspectors will want to see that children are taken out of the premises on a daily basis”
“Long-term whole-setting development plans must prioritise outdoor provision and allocate funds accordingly, as they become available…Limited funds must not prevent progress”
