Every kid plays. On our playgrounds, everyone plays, everyone belongs, everyone contributes to the game. The key to this powerful play is a great playbook. Whether it’s school recess, after school program, office breaks, or at home play, you can be a positive, playful force in your community.
In order to make positive change in our schools and communities, we must put ourselves in kids’ shoes and identify with students.
—Jill Vialet, Playworks CEO and Founder
