Playworks for every kid

Playworks in Arizona
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.

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.”

"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."
