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

"Students are working better together both in the classroom and outside. They are able to resolve most problems on their own.”

Teacher, Horn Elementary School, Houston

Playworks Training
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

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
