Playworks is the leading national nonprofit leveraging the power of play to transform children’s social and emotional health. We are changing school culture by leveraging the power of safe, fun, and healthy play at school every day.
We create a place for every kid on the playground to feel included, be active, and build valuable social and emotional skills. Playworks partners with schools, districts, and afterschool programs to provide a service or mix of services including on-site coaches, professional training for school staff who support recess, and consultative partnerships.
Right now, most Playworks schools are closed. While schools are closed, families are looking for ways to keep their kids engaged, active, and having fun. Some elementary schools across the country are having remote classes for the first time. While schools are going virtual, teachers are looking for support with keeping kids engaged and support for keeping kids engaged online.
