"Playworks benefits all our students. They are learning to be civil to each other and have fun at recess. Teachers feel less stress and the overall school climate has improved.”

Playworks Utah Turns Five
This year, we celebrate the 5th anniversary of Playworks Utah and the 20th anniversary of the founding of Playworks. Join us in celebrating 5 years of healthy, safe, and inclusive play for thousands of children in our community.
The Playworks Store is now open! Promote play with Playworks shirts and swag, or give kids opportunities for safe, healthy play with playground equipment and games. All sales help Playworks leverage the power of play at schools across the country.
"[Playworks Trainers] empower everyone with the vision and the resources to make incremental changes that begin to positively impact not just the recess culture, but the entire learning culture of a school."
Kathryn Malý, Educator
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
Off the Sidelines and into the Action
We are changing the way children interact, both in and out of school. Learn how we move kids off of the sidelines and into the action by watching this animation.
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.
