#Play4ALL

At Dream Networks we collaboratively create play areas with  schools, businesses and communities with the hope to enable equal rights to play.  For all children regardless of their social, physical, ethnic and economic status. We implement play design and build programmes through harnessing the power of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics), creativity and caring for our global neighbour. Our collaborative network and interactive programmes provide a vehicle to bring unlocked dreams of playing, to life.

Community Tailored

Our play areas are tailored to meet the requirements of the community where the play areas are built.

Business Supported

Businesses use their skills and resources to support the design and building process

Sustainably Built

From our initial designs to full scale build, our play areas are built with a focus on the sustainable use of natural resources and materials.

Programmes

Dream Networks creates play for all, through both our creative education workshops and our built play areas. We aim to target communities where the need for childhood development through play is the greatest

Love Plays and Safe Haven are engineering design and build programmes that aim to influence the social, economic and environmental ecosystem of the people participating in the programmes and the communities in which the play areas are built. Our programmes provide a collaborative network between schools, businesses and communities which encourages knowledge transfer and produces opportunities.

Attainment of STEM subjects in children as young as 8 is improved during a eight week programme in primary and secondary schools.

Children's ideas are cultivated into practical solutions with the support of volunteers from industry and teachers who lead our creative engineering design programmes.
