Just Between Friends partners with Playworld to bring innovative play to parent teacher associations (PTAS) and schools
With a mission to improve the lives of
school-age children, Just Between Friends searches for partnerships with
like-minded companies committed to enhancing the lives of children, their
parents and teachers. Since play
is such an important contributor to a child’s cognitive and physical
development, Just Between Friends joined forces with Playworld in 2011
to help bring the value of play to children throughout the country.
“We’re proud to continue our
partnership with Playworld,” states David Radin, president of Just
Between Friends. “Like JBF,
Playworld continues to develop innovative products, systems and
services that provide access to play forschools, communities and families.”
The partnership will include outreach
to PTAs, schools and parents through the JBF online system, events, webinars
“Continuing our partnership with Just Between Friends is an integral aspect of our outreach to help schools and communities understand the importance of play, discern the differences in playground equipment, and obtain guidance when applying for playground grant assistance,” said Kevin Cook, vice president of sales for Playworld.
