I was amazed how quickly the play equipment was erected and the fact that you sent two teams to build each piece of equipment simultaneously was splendid! There was no disruption to the daily running of the school and the site was left clean and tidy. We have had many positive comments from staff and parents as to how attractive the two pieces look. I would fully recommend Creative Play to any school that is considering using them.’  Blenheim Primary School

Creative Play has been fantastic from the beginning until the end and the contractors put the safety of our pupils first at all times. The equipment not only looks wonderful but has been installed to a first-class standard. We would definitely use Creative Play again and highly recommend them!’  St Augustine of Canterbury Catholic Primary School

A great professional team at all levels. Very impressed with the install team and how quickly everything was completed. They were no bother during the school day and the Project Manager was superb on ensuring everything was a great standard. I would love to have them all back again!’  Mount Carmel Catholic Primary School

I would just like to say how impressed we have been with all the staff we’ve met from Creative Play. The Play Consultant did a fantastic job helping us design the area and was more than happy to amend the plans on a number of occasions before we found the design we were finally happy with. The turnaround from when we decided to proceed with the project to its completion was extremely quick at only two weeks. This has been very beneficial for the children who have been out playing on the equipment today. The Project Manager responded to my concerns and reassured me that the ‘finish’ would be exactly what we wanted. Both teams who worked on site were courteous and polite and friendly. I would be more than happy to recommend you and definitely consider you for future projects.’  Ruskin Junior School

We can’t thank Creative Play enough! The journey started with the Play Consultant, who listened to our thoughts and ideas, and then with the design team, who began to make our dream playgrounds come alive. The installation team worked swiftly to make our designs a reality, which he did ‘come rain or shine’. Our new play areas are fantastic, full of awe, wonder and intrigue. The children thoroughly enjoy their new learning environment. A big thank you to all involved.’  Langley Primary School

Creative Play have exceeded our expectations in all aspects of the process. The installation team just got on with things and completed the job with no fuss. The site was kept safe and tidy throughout. They were very personable, cheerful, and happy to answer any queries.’  Barnsbury Primary School

Very pleased with the whole installation, from planning to installation – excellent job all round. Thank you. We are all very pleased with the installation, in fact all the way through from the initial sales call to completion was a fairly painless experience. There was little disruption to the school, even with installation taking place during term time. I would also like to say a special thank you to all the guys that were on site, the school’s Premises Manager commented that they were a pleasure to deal with and the best contractors he has experienced on site.’  Cardwell Primary School
