One of the most overlooked tools in education is the power of play. Recess and extended playtime provide kids with the opportunity to solve problems, make decisions, take turns, express their ideas, and listen to others.
Playworks TeamUp partners with elementary schools by providing an on-site coordinator to teach, model, and empower a sustainable recess program. A fusion of Playworks Coach and Playworks Pro, TeamUp provides a single site coordinator to four partner schools. The site coordinator spends a week each month at each school leading, supporting, and empowering the recess team—including a lead recess coach—to create a safe, inclusive playground for all students.
