Playworks is organized around 5 core themes, each supporting a different play emphasis, collectively helping children 4 and under build their physical, social, math, art, literacy and problem-solving skills.

Playworks has been so successful, CMOM has asked Roto to replicate it twice in other NYC boroughs. Build to last, the structures and interactive elements in Playworks are still going strong after more than 10 solid years of heavy urban use.

"Roto is our go to design and fabrication house. First rate work, professionalism and value. They are always my first recommendation to colleagues."
