The Powered by Playworks Strategic Plan is our roadmap for making our vision for change a reality. This strategy will guide our innovation, growth, and impact on schools with Playworks services and other playful schools across the country so that ultimately, all children will experience the benefits of safe, healthy play.


Listen to an audio recording of Playworks President and Chief Operating Officer Elizabeth Cushing describe how we intend to build a movement for play.

As we diversify our services and launch a movement for play, we will keep our eye on the ball. Our Playworks Team Up and Pro services demonstrate that we can create a compelling impact on school climate through different models.

98% of educators report an increase in the number of students engaged in healthy play at recess

95% of educators agree that Playworks improves overall school climate

86% of educators report a decrease in the amount of class time spent resolving conflicts

Building on our successful launch and expansion of Playworks Pro, we will continue to lead the field in delivering high-quality innovation and measurable results.
