Kindergarteners’ safe play behind bollards
by: NJM Group on
“Only About Children Childcare Hampton” has installed Australian Bollards’ high impact bollards in front of the outdoor playground at their premises.
The kindergarten prides itself of its picturesque and elaborate outdoor space where the children can play, climb and ride bikes. The bollards are meant to protect them against the cars in the adjacent parking lot.
Imagine a parent losing control of his car. He might be busy on his phone, or he might be sleep-deprived or stressed. He steps on the speeder instead of the brake, and the car speeds forward and ploughs right through the glass fence and the line of bushes into the playground.
Such an accident could have catastrophic consequences, potentially causing serious harm to both children and staff.
Unfortunately, a similar incident happened only a few months ago, when a mother accidently crashed her car through a class room’s wall at Greenacre School in Sydney.
It’s a reminder of how important it is to protect our children. That’s exactly what About Children Childcare Hampton has done. The heavy duty, subsurface mounted bollards are strong enough to stop a car by providing a strong barrier between the playground and the parking lot.
Despite their strength, the bollards are sleek and elegant.
Elegance is a popular choice. We provided similar solutions at other locations as well, such as St James The Apostle Primary School, where our stainless steel bollards now line the curb of their drop-off zone.
We also offer various creative designs that would excite any child, such as puppy benches, pencil bollards and colourful spheres.
Australian Bollards are pleased to see Only About Children taking steps to protect the children in their care, and we are proud to be part of the solution.
