When education is better
everything is better.

All children deserve a
safe place to play.

Play is a fundamental human right acknowledged by the United Nations and recognized as critical to a child’s successful development. Yet, across the world and especially in rural communities of the global south, children are without safe places to play or permission to play with unrestrained joy, curiosity, and creativity. Play360 brings playgrounds to schools, combining the spirit of play with the quest for a better education and future for our children.

Children who
are exposed
to play in early

Not just any playground

A Play360 playground is not just any playground. Our playgrounds support basic education skills such as reading, math, and critical thinking. Using local materials (such as used tires) and local tools, play360 designs play equipment with corresponding curriculum that educators can use to support their teaching and improve learning outcomes.

These playgrounds train leaders, inspire community action, improve educational outcomes, and keep kids in school.

Play equipment has several
educational uses.

Educators receive training to support the use of the playground in their classroom.

Curriculum guides accompany every playground build.

Play Matters

Research indicates that children learn through play and that play is linked with emotional health and cognitive growth. 

Play & 21st Century Skills

Children play in order to learn about and interact with their world. Through play, children gain the necessary mental, physical, and social skills to succeed in their adult lives. Play is linked to the development of skills that form the foundation for life-long success including critical thinking, communication, problem solving, and collaboration. Often referred to as “21st Century Skills,” these capabilities complement core subject matter knowledge and are highly valued in a increasingly complex, competitive, and interconnected world.


Creative thinking is a critical skill to adapt to modern challenges.


Communication builds relationships of trust and safety.

Critical Thinking

Critical thinking inspires independence and promotes justice.


Collaboration is the basis of strong communities.
