About Kids Need Recess

Kids Need Recess is a project born out of love and dedication, drawing on the experiences and insights of parent advocates from across the country. The aim is to empower parents who want to ensure that their children have access to a healthy and enriching educational environment, while also sharing the latest scientific research on the importance of recess. Ultimately, the message is clear: recess is just as vital to a child's development as math and reading, and we must all do our part to make sure it receives the attention and resources it deserves.

Kids Need Recess is a parent-created website dedicated to helping all parents advocate for more recess and play time at school on behalf of their child. Recess makes school a better place to learn.
