What is Recess?

Recess is a much needed and often rare occurrence for today’s children so, we are working to change that! Unstructured or free play benefits the whole child (and adult). 

We’re working to create a “brick and mortar” play space in Athens, GA. Picture a small hands-on children’s museum with open-ended options for play and creativity. 

Incubating something this amazing takes time (we have plenty of this) and money (we don’t have this).


So, in the meantime…  check out our calendar for Pop-Up Recess Experiences! 


Recess is not just a physical benefit…  it assists children socially, emotionally & cognitively
