How does play develop the whole child?

To build better playgrounds and to encourage more of them, we wanted to understand how play leads to successful adults. That's why we commissioned a meta-study in partnership with the University of Minnesota's Institute of Child Development to advance the conversation. 

This study aggregates and analyzes key findings from some of the most influential studies on children and play. Our purpose is to recognize the importance and power of play and encourage you to think about and create positive play experiences for children in your community.
