Playworks for every kid

Congratulations to our Rock Star Recess winner!
Haley Pilot School in Roslindale, MA, won a Rock Star Recess at their school. The kids enjoyed a recess filled with new recess games, jugglers, magicians, and a visit from the New England Revolution mascot! The competition, presented by Target, culminated in a concert by the band Forever in Your Mind.

Harnessing the power of play to strengthen our kids, schools and communities.

"Playworks has made a strong impact on the climate of the school.  Students are more engaged and more active. They are also much more deliberate about practicing teamwork in and out of the classroom.”
