PlayWorks - What Is It?



What is this Playworks thing?

  • Playworks is a Recess Program to help kids feel included and decrease conflict
  • Are kids all forced to participate? Nope, games are all optional
  • We teach games with universal rules to welcome all abilities and decreases arguments 
  • We teach language that is more positive, such as saying “Good job, nice try,” instead of, “You’re OUT!”
  • We teach habits and skills to create a more positive playground community, such as naturally forming “recycle lines” to wait for your turn in the game
  • Play equipment from home is not allowed. This helps create an environment where one child doesn’t have power over others
  • We have a huge repertoire of games that are genuinely fun
