Harnessing the power of community to promote healthy development through play

Our Mission:



Together, we can maximize every child's potential during their first four years of life.  Play is not only a foundation for learning, it is critical for healthy physical, social, emotional, and intellectual development. Recess Collective is designed to give families the tools to stay healthy & engaged by creating space to play. 


Recess Collective

Our mission is to build healthy families, through play, learning and community.  Recess Collective harnesses decades of research and brings best practices to life by creating playful, accessible neighborhood spaces that encourage social interaction, genuine and sustainable support, creative stimulation, and community inclusion. 

We believe that by sharing knowledge & activities that contribute to optimal development and well-being, we can impact the health of our communities and cities.  



Get Involved

Help create and sustain a community centered space designed to be part of the solution.  Our space is designed to support the development of young children, facilitate socialization and well-being of parents & caregivers, and leverage the power of our community's resources.

"Young children naturally reach out for interaction through babbling, facial expressions, and gestures, and adults respond with the same kind of vocalizing and gesturing back at them. In the absence of such responses—or if the responses are unreliable or inappropriate—the brain’s architecture does not form as expected, which can lead to disparities in learning and behavior."
