At PlayCore, our studies of the role of play in childhood development and community health & wellness are ongoing. The knowledge we gain from independent research helps inform the innovative solutions we develop around environmental design, childhood development, the benefits of physical activity, for a variety of play and recreation solutions.

Our research efforts are enhanced through our partnerships with leading play/recreation experts and university partners in a variety of best practice fields, which help in the development of our many educational resources. Learn more about our research resources by clicking the tabs at left.
