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

"Playworks has given our student body a common language with which to communicate and a structure to resolve issues. It teaches skills that are transferable to everyday life.”

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

"I'd rather go out and be present outside, active and involved spending 15 minutes playing every day instead of spending 30-45 minutes suspending a kid. Now, part of my job is to play with kids and teach them how to play instead of laying down the law."

Peter Wilson, Principal, Burbank Elementary
