Learning Castle ECE Centre in Auckland finds PlayBlox the perfect solution for their new playground
During lockdown in 2020 Ranesh Singh began looking for a new playground for his Learning Castle ECE centre
At Learning Castle the current playground was old and needed upgrading however, Ranesh wanted something different. Clear in his mind for any new playground was that it needed to be able to accommodate the changing needs of the children.
He had started looking at fixed structures with parts and pieces that could be changed and knew he wanted a playground that was robust and compliant that could be moved and changed easily.
His search led him to Park Supplies & Playgrounds where he met Playground Consultant, Melissa Cowie. Mel says of that first meeting,
Ranesh and Mel talked about his vision and needs, and it soon became clear that the PlayBlox system was something that Ranesh should look at.
“Initially I thought he wanted a fixed structure, but as we talked the idea of introducing the PlayBlox equipment became obvious to me.” says Mel.
Ranesh had never seen the PlayBlox equipment before but quickly saw the potential for it at his centre.
Prior to deciding to purchase PlayBlox Ranesh explored other options in the market.
“In the end we chose PlayBlox because it was robust, safe and had a seemingly endless range of configurations and equipment that could be added to the Blox.”
Now, having had their PlayBlox onsite since August last year, Ranesh says that the kids just love them,
“We got rid of our fixed structure and now the PlayBlox sits pride of place in our yard. Our staff find it easier to supervise the children on the PlayBlox and know they are safe. It gives them great peace of mind doing their jobs.”
“PlayBlox is a terrific system and I have recommended them to my brother who
also owns an ECE Centre.”
