My Paraprofessionals just completed the training provided by Peaceful Playgrounds. We found the information comprehensive and helpful. The training helped to allow all the Paraprofessionals to fully understand the way to supervise the playground and bring continuity to all three recess periods. – Cherie McComb, Principal

Principal testimony SB

I took the course because I liked the specificity of the course and the 5 key components to successful playground supervision. Providing playground supervision training will put everyone on the “same page” so that the students will know what to expect and be more successful at recess times.

The Playground Supervision course was easy-to-use and very informative.  It gave us the support we needed to implement appropriate supervision to help make our school playground a peaceful and positive experience for all. – Shari L. Attebery, MA, Twin Peaks Elementary School, Tucson, Arizona
