The way we see it, a successful play environment lets kids go places they’ve never gone before – even if only in their imaginations. It helps them develop their physical abilities, while also focusing on opportunities for social, emotional development.

We are about outcomes.

PlayCore programs are all about outcomes. We want children, families and communities to succeed, so we provide design programs, curriculum programs, and resources to help your community make the most of its play spaces.
