Outdoor spaces are crucial to a child’s wellbeing and development, socially and physically, but they can be difficult to maintain. Playground maintenance is a simple way to help your school or nursery’s outdoor space always looks its best.

Many schools and nurseries are dealing with pressing issues such as COVID restrictions, budgetary issues, and pupil wellbeing. It’s understandable how outdoor space maintenance can quickly fall to the bottom of the list. But your playground areas are essential parts of your school’s daily life and need to be maintained for safety and aesthetic purposes.

Health and safety

Whether you have a traditional playground made up of hard surfaces or have play park equipment such as slides and swings, safety has never been more important to a school’s reputation. Parents and students alike will be quick to notice poorly maintained items, whether this is a functional issue or merely a missing coat of paint. 

A professional play area maintenance team will spot issues before they escalate, turning potential headaches into quick fixes. 

Professional cleaning

With COVID on everyone’s minds, cleanliness, and overt displays of it, has never been so important. The inside of your school is no doubt, sparkling clean (although if it’s not, we can maintain that for you too), but it is easy to neglect outdoor spaces. Playground maintenance includes a professional-level clean designed to give visiting parents and officials a clear indicator of the efforts you put into your school or nursery. Outdoor spaces are often the first or last thing prospective parents see, so make a great first impression or leave on a high note!

Our playground maintenance team will jet-wash your surfaces, giving children a safe and clean place to play while giving others the right impression of your school. The transformation can be astounding, bringing colour and life back into your play areas.


Health & Safety compliance is essential in and around your school. It can be difficult and time-intensive to stay up to date on the latest requirements and train your eye to spot issues. An experienced professional will bring this expertise, letting you relax, knowing your play area is up to code.

One-off or ongoing

It could be that you are just run ragged with recent challenges, in which case, our team will be happy to provide a one-off visit to keep this as you would like it or to check your compliance and make any quick fixes.

Many schools are now simply overstretched with their workloads, however. If this is you, we can take play area maintenance off your to-do list for good by setting up a regular maintenance contract.
