Thank you, Old School Square, for partnering with us to promote Play!

Why a Play Initiative? Research shows that child-directed play is a crucial element in the healthy development of social-emotional skills, cognitive skills, physical skills and mental wellbeing. Play is a building block of academic success and a joyful childhood. All children should have the opportunity for this type of play every day.

Our vision is to bring play to every child’s life, every day.

We thank our Silver Sponsors for their year-long support of our Play Initiative and more!
