Playworks for every kid

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

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!
