We believe in the power of play to bring out the best in every kid.

Back-to-School Signals Time to Think about Recess

With the new school year upon us, Playworks is urging families to add an important task to their already-full plate: reviewing the state of recess at their child’s school.

Tag, you’re it!

Around the country and in your community, 425,000 Playworks kids are starting a new school year. During recess, they’re learning teamwork, empathy and fair play—while having fun and increasing physical activity.

By supporting Playworks, you’ll bring out the superpowers in even more children this school year.
