“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
With Playworks Training, learn how to use active play to support the social, emotional, and cognitive development of your kids.
"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
Off the Sidelines and into the Action

Playworks is grateful to our partners, who share our belief that every child deserves a place on their school playground. Learn how partnering with Playworks can create opportunities that help kids find their place in the world through play.
