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

"Two AWESOME days! I so do appreciate the work that you all are doing and have been able to share with my staff. They have been leery to try it out, because let’s face it…kids can be a tough crowd! After a little coaching they have been pleasantly surprised at how the things they have learned worked! A BLAST was had by all!"

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
