Early Childhood

Children ages 6-23 months are motivated to learn and explore. Designed from research with Early Childhood Education Professors, each play event is tied directly to developmental milestones and helps children obtain skills in a natural setting through child-directed play.


Creative Play

Packed with play value, Burke’s Discovery Stations and PlayHouse facilitate imaginative and creative play by offering a place for children to create their own roles and fantasies in a real-life setting complete with realistic details, games and space for everyone to engage.


Preschool Play

Bringing play areas designed specifically for ages 2-5 to the playground creates a space where children of this specific age group can learn and grow together.



Music Play

As a universal creative experience, PlayEnsemble brings a sense of wonder to the play environment. Musical experiences aren’t just play; they accelerate child development intellectually, socially and emotionally and enhance overall motor skills, language and literacy.


School Aged Play

Creating a playspace that meets the diverse needs of the school aged population is important and should include activities such as climbing, swinging, sliding and spinning to challenge their physical comfort zones, as well as areas for socialization and rest.


Sand & Water Play

Burke’s Sand & Water play events encourage play with sand and water AND other natural pieces found in nature such as pebbles or wood chips – a natural way to incorporate loose parts play!
