‘We started plans for our brand new setting, we wanted to ensure our outside area had the WOW factor. Cool Canvas was always the company we wanted to choose. We had seen much of their work at the Nursery World show and with TTS. We met with Oliver and knew immediately we had made the right decision. Oliver’s enthusiasm and ideas blew us away, we soon had an amazing design on our desks. The design was clear and easy to understand, Oliver was keen for us to be 100% happy and spoke to us and redesigned until we were all happy. Cool Canvas started work as planned. The guys were professional, ensuring they signed in every morning. They worked so hard even when the weather was appalling. Our outdoor area is now even better than we ever expected. We are now waiting for February when the next adventure begins with Cool Canvas.’

Cool Canvas has worked on many creative projects at Grosvenor Nursery School in Bolton for a number of years. They have led and developed exciting and challenging construction projects with our very young children, such as our ‘Insect Hotel’ and wall sculptures. Oliver enthusiastically involves the children in all aspects of the projects and they love working with him, as he allows them to develop their own ideas and he encourages independent learning. I would recommend Oliver’s talents to any school

I found cool canvas on the internet. Our Reception outdoor area was a mess and it was a real awkward space to work with. I knew we didn’t want playground type apparatus. We wanted a natural more investigative area. That’s exactly what I searched for when I came across cool canvas. The fact that it was a local small family business appealed to us and when Oliver came to do his initial consultation, we knew we had found the right company! He had great ideas of what to do in the space. He listened to our thoughts and had designed something in rough very quickly! We were amazed at how much could be done with what little we had. Soon after we received the plans. We were thrilled with them! The communication from Oliver all the way through the project was good. They even took care of all the risk assessments and safety checks and told us exactly the schedule for installation so we could keep our parents informed. The work took just under three days to install and the guys who did it were lovely! The children were fascinated! We are thrilled by the end result. It’s more than we hoped for. Oliver was really keen that we got the best from the area and added enhancements that were an extra bonus for us! We got a full demonstration on how to use the area including safely measures and preservation of the materials. Because he’s made it so investigative the possibilities in there are endless for the children. We didn’t realise how versatile it was going to be. The children are going to be out there all day!!! Thanks so much for all your hard work.
