We believe in the power of play to bring out the best in every kid.

The power of play is immense!

We must not undervalue play’s impact on developing engaged citizens of tomorrow. In this fabulous TED Talk, Playworks CEO & Founder Jill Vialet shares, “Play matters because it gives us a brief respite from the tyranny of apparent purpose.”
