Playworks is changing the way children experience school every day by leveraging the power of safe and healthy play. We create a place for every kid on the playground to feel included, be active, and build valuable social and emotional skills.

Our ambitions demand that we invest in recruiting, developing and managing a team that reflects the broad diversity of our communities. Our core values of inclusion, respect, healthy community and healthy play are the foundation of our organization and are infused in all aspects of our work, including recruiting and retaining the best talent we can.

Life at Playworks

We’re serious about play. We know that play brings out the best in all of us so we bring that playful energy to the office. From organizing a game of pick-up foursquare at lunch to transforming the office into an indoor golf tournament, we know how to let off steam and stay focused on our critical mission to bring safe, healthy play to more kids.
