School PlaygroundsPlay Has No Grade Limit
Let's Fund Active Schools.
Research is clear. Physical activity improves academic performance and classroom behavior. Schools have a unique opportunity to create healthier, happier environments for the diverse needs of students.
We believe in school playgrounds and we want to help schools design opportunities that address the needs of the whole child, the whole campus and the whole community.
Through May 11, 2018 GameTime is offering up to $25,000 in funding for active play projects.

When Students Are More Active At School
20% More Likely to Earn a Higher Grade
According to the research found in PlayOn!, students who are more active during the day are 20% more likely to earn an A in math or English. What better way to prepare children for life than to increase their math AND English skills?
6% Increase in Standardized Test Scores
Increased physical activity throughout the school day and throughout your campus helps increase standardized test scores by 6% over 3 years. That's a huge difference.
Just One Physically Active Lesson Makes a Massive Difference
Just one physically active lesson each week creates a 13% increase in students' physical activity and decreases 21% of teachers' time managing behavior. Instead of calling down students for 12 minutes you can drop knowledge for the entire hour-long class!
Let's Move! Active Schools
Play is critical to children’s physical, intellectual, social, and emotional development. As a PlayCore company, GameTime strives to help children reach their full potential through fun learning activities and curricula that promote a lifelong love for physical activity and learning.
That is why Playcore has teamed up with Let’s Move! Active Schools - the national initiative dedicated to ensuring 60 minutes of physical activity a day is the norm in K-12 schools. The Let’s Move! Active Schools national collaborative makes it easier for schools to create an Active School environment by streamlining physical education and physical activity resources, programs, grants and professional development.
