& Early Learning

When it comes to playground safety incidents it’s not a matter of ‘if’ but ‘when’. How can you be happy when mishaps happen?

Pushing boundaries is a vital component of child development. But how do you ensure that lessons are learned from scrapes and bruises rather than broken bones or worse? 

We deliver superior-safety all-weather playgrounds to kindergartens and early learning centres throughout New Zealand. These environments instigate challenging play while ensuring the highest standard of care. By providing a full supply and installation package from design to completion our certified installation team delivers a guaranteed top quality finish, on time, to budget.

Case Studies

Featured case study

Kumeu Montessori Preschool

Kumeu approached Numat with the need for an entire landscape/playspace solution in their new Preschool development. 

They required a company that could take the project from the concept stage right through to construction, completion, and certification. 

The project required integrated product solutions and the design involved a variety of play elements to accommodate ages up to 5.

Featured case study

The Gardens Early Childhood Centre

The Gardens needed three clearly defined spaces – one for the under-ones, one for the under-twos and one for the two and over age group.

Micha Brown, the Centre’s Managing Director, knew the geography of the site presented a challenge however. 

“It was a tricky job due to the different elevation of the land and the different uses of this space required,” she says. “ It took a lot of discussions and there were many different ideas thrown around.”

Numat delivered and installed a range of surfacing materials along with sandpit covers and sunshade, providing a complete project management service for the site. 

Featured case study

Akaiti Mangarongaro Early Learning Centre

When Akaiti Mangarongaro manager Luke Mealamu was tasked with delivering a new playground he knew good playground design and experienced project management would be key.

After researching a few playground construction companies Luke settled on Numat to design and deliver the project. For Luke, it was Numat’s depth of experience and proven track record that made them the clear choice for the job.

Numat designed an exciting play space that includes a sandpit, concrete paths, rubber pour surfacing, storage sheds, and hard and soft landscaping.
