Who We Are

The Leadership Team at Play in Peel is committed to improving the fundamental movement skills and physical literacy of children so they may enjoy happy, healthy, active lives.

Our Leadership Team

Our Leadership Team is comprised of partners from Child Development Resource Connection Peel; the City of Mississauga, Recreation Division; Peel District School Board; Region of Peel Public Health; and Sport for Life Canada.

We believe in the inherent value of collaborative work as it respects both the ideas of the individual and the collective wisdom of the group.

We value the physical, social, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual well-being of all individuals, and especially of our children who deserve educational experiences that allow them to develop and foster their health and well-being.

By providing children with opportunities to improve their physical literacy and develop fundamental movement skills, we are laying a strong foundation on which their future health will be built.

Ensuring children are confident, competent, knowledgeable, motivated and engaged movers for life will help to create happy, healthy communities in Peel in which children and families enjoy better health outcomes.
