Passing the baton
South San Francisco’s Parks and Rec has partnered with Play Works to train 25 preschool and after-school program staff and teachers on a curriculum to increase student physical activity. Children who get regular physical activity perform better in school. Trained teachers returned to their schools and trained more school staff and implemented the program for over 500 kids per day during the school year! The program has seen great success thanks to Parks and Rec providing consultant support to teachers with curriculum implementation.
