"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.”

"The training was revelant, concise, and interesting. It reinforced my philosophy of kids needing to play. I loved being able to try the activities, not just talk about them. The energy, ideas and resources make me want to implement healthy inclusive play for my students."
