About Us

Playworks brings out the best in every kid, through play. 

We build a culture of play that enables kids to feel a real sense of belonging. Partnering with teachers, principals, and parents, we make sure kids have the opportunity to contribute on the playground, in the classroom, and in our community. A randomized control trial found that compared to students at similar schools, Playworks students were more physically active and teachers reported that students had greater feelings of school safety and less bullying behavior.

Do you believe in the power of play to bring out the best in every kid? Do you possess a desire to support kids to create healthy school communities? Join our team and bring your passion for play to a school near you!
