Harnessing the power of play to strengthen our kids, schools and communities.

"Through focusing on conflict resolution strategies, students can spend more time in partner work and learning. These strategies spill over into class time.”

Teacher, Allen-Field Elementary, Milwaukee

Playworks Pro
With Playworks Pro, learn how to use active play to support the social, emotional, and cognitive development of your kids.

"Our recess is going wonderfully. I have had a 25% decrease in referrals overall, meaning kids are in class learning instead of out. Fights over conflicts in games is down even more than that!"

Cherie Esposito, Principal

Collaboration is in our nature
Every Playworks partnership is customized to meet our partners’ specific goals.

At Mattel, we believe in the power of play and the critical link between play and the healthy development and learning of children. With Playworks as a partner, we can directly and immediately translate that vision into direct impact with thousands of children each year.” 

Diedre Lind, Executive Director, Mattel Children’s Foundation
