A Better Recess


Instead of going back to class energized and ready to learn after recess, kids often return upset and unable to focus. We can change this. At a great recess:

Kids are at their best

Kids bring out the best in themselves and each other. They learn the value of fair play, compassion, and respect. They practice key social and emotional skills.

Kids become leaders

They run their own games and settle their disputes quickly (we recommend rock, paper, scissors) because getting along is more fun than fighting.

Kids choose to be active

When all students are included and all students know how to play popular games, every child has the opportunity to discover the joy of active play.

A Better Recess with Playworks


The Denver Broncos have been a partner of Playworks to bring play to four elementary schools in Denver. Greenwood Academy, McMeen Elementary, Montview Elementary and Maxwell Elementary are the four schools funded by the Broncos partnership and benefit greatly from their support.
