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

"Playworks has been 'life-saving' and 'life changing' to our school environment. We have better attendance, less tardiness, less behavior conflicts and increased student focus and achievement.”

Playworks Pro
With Playworks Pro, learn how to use active play to support the social, emotional, and cognitive development of your kids.

"I don't think I realized the immediate and wide reaching impact [Playworks] would have on the culture of the school. We have kids playing together now that would never have in the past."

Fran Roy, Chief Academic Officer

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.” 

Diedre Lind, Executive Director, Mattel Children’s Foundation
