Playworks Pro is off to a running start, with trainings on tap throughout the entire country.
In Seattle, Treeswing, a local nonprofit focused on helping children develop lifelong healthy habits, is bringing Playworks Recess 360 to four elementary schools. The year-long training and technical assistance program provides intensive training as well as customized on-site follow-up for participating schools. Recess 360 trainings are scheduled in several other US cities.
On the East Coast, Boston Public Schools have contracted with Playworks for Recess Implementation training. This two-day intensive training module with an on-site technical assistance visit is designed to jump-start a positive recess. The district-wide training initiative now means that Playworks will reach about 86 percent of all schools in Boston through training and direct service.
