Playworks is a national organization that works to ensure that all children have access to safe, healthy play during the schoolday.  Recess Days are held in different cities throughout the year in an effort to raise awareness about the benefits of play in childhood.  Even the American Academy of Pediatrics (our parent organization) promotes play as a crucial activity for kids!
