Just a minute or two of your time could help bring a wonderful program to our neighborhood schools. Through facilitated playtime, students learn teamwork, conflict resolution, creative problem solving and life lessons that stretch beyond traditional classroom activities. Being engaged in active play also helps kids stay fit and return to their classrooms ready to focus & learn.
