“Summer learning loss” is real. Schools need to help students preserve their hard-earned academic gains by keeping students stimulated and engaged over the summer. But teachers and staff spend unnecessary time stuffing flyers, chasing parents, registering kids, and interacting with external OST programs.

InPlay lightens the administrative burden and eliminates the need to maintain lists of out-of-school learning programs.


For busy parents, InPlay offers an easy-to-use afterschool and summer planning guide to find and register for affordable programs. We offer a searchable guide that includes all local programs, including free and reduced-price programs, and those that serve students with special needs and English-learners.


Providers seek cost-effective ways to promote their programs to fill spots. Flyers and Peachjar are hit or miss. Camp fairs are time-consuming that yield few sign-ups. But 1 in 4 local families use InPlay to find summer and after school programs for their kids.
