Playworks harnesses the power of play to bring out the best in our students. Our students are trained in the Junior Coach Leadership Program. With organized, supervised play during recess, we have less bullying, students feel safer, students are engaged in more vigorous physical activities, and students transition from recess to their learning environment in less time.
