The pride and joy at primary school Rosensteinlaan (CBS De kleine wereld)

“The school with the giant playground.” That is how primary school ‘The Small World’ is referred to these days. Their playground saw an immense amount of improvement. They put special focus on making the flooring a large colourful mosaic, but the real eye-catcher, without a doubt, is their brand new Sona.

Marlies Bisschop – assistant director and location manager of the Rosensteinlaan school in Groningen, is very satisfied with the end result. “We wanted the playground to become an inviting and safe place for our pupils to play, but we also wanted to make it appealing for the entire community. We chose for Yalp because of their unique selection of interactive play sets. Furthermore, their customer service and commitment from the account manager during the entire collaboration was extraordinary. We really worked together on this.”

“During the realisation of the new playground, it was taken into account that both younger and older children should be able to use it to the fullest. The playground has turned out to be a great success, and especially the Sona is a big hit. Children from all over the area come to the playground to play. Even after school has ended, the playground stays crowded for much longer. It’s a wonderful sight. In fact, children are coming to school even earlier now, and are staying even longer to play on the new playground. The playground is also very popular amongst former students. All in all, we can conclude that the school has reached its goal. The new Sona stimulates kids from the entire neighbourhood to get outdoors, socialise, and have fun.”

“What appealed to us most during our collaboration, was the involvement Yalp had in the process, without just thinking of their bottom-line with every decision. From the beginning, the contact with them was very close and personal.”
