ELPA has considerable experience supporting schools and groups to introduce loose parts play and improve playtimes. We can work with your setting to maximise the benefits of play and playtimes. Playing, especially outdoors, naturally supports children’s health, wellbeing and relationships. Improved playtime supports children’s creativity and problem solving; reduces arguments and promotes inclusion.

ELPA works with the whole team to develop the values, policies, skills and resources that make lasting change, improving children’s play experiences and making a happier school environment. Our focus is on introducing loose parts play, enhancing staff play skills and developing a culture of play across your school.

“With loose parts there is more co-operation between the children. They are listening, talking and playing with other children.” – Teacher, Windygoul Primary School
