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.
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.

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