Annual survey results are in!

High five for last year's successes!
High five for last year's successes!

We're excited to share last school year's successes and the hopes for this year! At the end of every school year, teachers and principals at our partner schools take an extensive survey about the impact of the Playworks program.

Here are a few highlights:

  • 99 percent of administrators, teachers, and support staff want Playworks to return.
  • 95 percent of staff report Playworks had a positive impact on school climate.
  • 97 percent of staff report an increase in number of students engaged in healthy play.

This year we have expanded the number of schools and students that we serve in Silicon Valley to 29 schools and over 16,000 students! We couldn't have grown without your continued support of our programming. 

Thank you!
