Playground Parents Volunteer Program
Connect Us provides all the tools, training, and ongoing support schools need to implement and sustain a volunteer recess facilitation program. Here’s an overview of the process:
Program Presentation – Connect Us will come to your school to present the program to staff, parent-teacher organizations, principals, etc.
Intake and Needs Assessment –
• Playground supervisors complete questionnaire to provide snapshot of each grade’s recess climate
• Meeting with key stakeholders – e.g., principal, social worker, P.E. teacher, parents and/or playground supervisors to identify school’s strengths, needs, concerns, and goals
• Assess configuration of playground, scope of available supervision, equipment, activity options, and social climate for each grade
Recess Review – Observe recess periods and provide recommendations
Implementation – Playground Parents Program or Connect Us staff facilitates recess
Playground Parents Program includes recess training for volunteers, parent coordinator consultations, all materials needed to recruit parent volunteers, a customized volunteer training handbook complete with games, rules, guidelines and inclusion strategies, and post-program follow up.
