"The playworker sees children through the lens of play."
- Penny Wilson
Play is a set of behaviors that are freely chosen, personally directed, and intrinsically motivated. Playworkers manage and create spaces for children’s play, in a way that is as invisible and unobtrusive to children as possible. Establishing a profession of local community playworkers builds advocates and professionals who know of the importance of play in all children's lives... and become a tranformative force to provide play for all.
