Partners in Play. For All.
GameTime’s parent company, PlayCore, worked in partnership with the National Lekotek Center to develop 2Play Together - a playground activity program specifically designed to create awareness, break down barriers, and foster friendships between children with and without disabilities on the playground. This educational resource provides playground specific activities that promote character development and provide disability awareness activities and strategies for professionals to use with children.
Products Designed for Inclusion
We are proud to partner with the National Lekotek Center to carefully evaluate a variety of products through their AblePlay Rating™ system to assess how it meets the needs of children of all abilities and support more inclusive play opportunities. The National Lekotek Center awarded GameTime the first AblePlay ratings for commercial playground equipment for many of our inclusive play products.
