Austek Play understands that inclusive playground equipment and thoughtful design of a play space creates an accessible world for children of various abilities. Inclusivity means giving everyone the opportunity to play, whether there are learning disabilities, visual or physical impairments. Moreover, it’s a design philosophy for a space that keeps everyone in mind – a space for all ages, physical and mental abilities, and also a space that is sympathetic to any cultural significance of the project’s location.
Play is a crucial part of growing up, developing emotional, social and creative thinking skills. It allows children to engage with their surrounding environment and with others in their community, explore ideas and different ways to engage test individual boundaries, all in a fun context.
For decades, inclusivity in playgrounds has been overlooked, denying many children from vital play time – and all the benefits which come with it.
Not everyone can do everything, but there must be something for everyone.
Austek Play believe everyone should have the right to be able to play, and that is one of their Core Values. With a passion for Inclusive Play, Austek Play are leading the way in designing and constructing play spaces, that offers everyone the opportunity to play!
