If you are reading this, then you must have had a chance to flick through the pages of our brand new website.
When we launched The Playing Space in March 2009, a website was top of our list of prioirities. With the help of the wonderful Matt Shearer at me-me.com, we created a website that was both functional and beautiful. In the process of constructing that site, we ‘got to know’ how we wanted The Playing Space to work. Together with Matt, we wrote down what The Playing Space did and how we did it. We described our classes and levels, our yearly syllabus, our pricing policy, our unique selling points, our business aims, and so much more besides.
Although The Playing Space has grown a great deal in the last eleven years, almost all of what we wrote then is still central to the way we work. We have been able to paste a lot of the text straight across from the old site to this one.
The old site was state of the art… in 2009. It had began to creak and groan a little bit, and was not that great if you were looking at it on a phone or an iPad. (This was 2009… iPads hadn’t even been invented yet!)
So it was time for a freshen-up, and here are the results. We think this website looks amazing on a desktop or laptop computer screen, and just as amazing on a handheld device. We have filled it with photos of our wonderful work over the years – some of the photos date back to 2009! Everywhere you look you’ll see the faces of children channeling their energies into communication and self-expression. The joy and hard work you see on those faces encapsulates everything we are about.
We hope you enoy looking through this site, and if there is anything that you wish was here but isn’t… or anything that isn’t working as you think it should, please don’t hesitate to let us know!
