What is the L.E.A.D. Recess Program?
The L.E.A.D. Recess program is a comprehensive leadership training program designed to create a strong school community through play. L.E.A.D. will create a positive recess culture at your school resulting in an active and more enjoyable recess experience for the administration, the staff, and the students.
What makes L.E.A.D. different?
We focus on building strong social skills and creating a place of belonging . . . through the games we play. The program does not focus solely on the physical activities at recess. L.E.A.D. finds a solution for the social and emotional interactions that occur on the playground and their subsequent continuation into the classroom.
Playocracy Inc. provides continual support to the Staff Champion to ensure the success and sustainability of the L.E.A.D. Recess program.
The goals of L.E.A.D.:
- Develop autonomously supported 21st Century student leaders.
- Train student L.E.A.D.ers to create a positive school community through play.
- Give student L.E.A.D.ers the tools to teach younger students structured games that encourage unstructured play at recess. More opportunities for all types of play lead to increased physical literacy levels.
- Support student L.E.A.D.ers while they role model positive social skills, allowing students to return to class with healthy social and emotional attitudes which develops an environment of connectedness.
