The AllPlay research program has been breaking down barriers since its inception in 2015 with seed funding from Moose Toys. The aim is to empower the medical community to prescribe sport and activities like dance to help children with learning difficulties lead a life like any other.
AllPlay is dedicated to supporting inclusion across education, sports and dance to improve the quality of life, learning, and social and emotional wellbeing of children and adolescents of all abilities.
The AllPlay research program is part of the Monash Krongold Clinic. AllPlay partners with industry, government and philanthropy to co-design and provide evidence-based resources and education that increase opportunities for all children and adolescents to be physically active and truly included in all settings. AllPlay Footy has been fully embedded in the AFL platforms. AllPlay Dance is focused on creating change with Queensland Ballet and various dance schools. AllPlay Learn is now supporting school communities in Victoria and NSW.

ACEing Autism partnership with UCLA!
It was a very proud day for our Moose USA team to attend the Deakin AllPlay AUSTRALIAN team and the UCLA ACEing Autism Team to hold an inaugural Pre-Learn Day. The Moose Happy Kids Foundation donation has laid the foundation for a long and exciting partnership between Deakin and UCLA to learn and share their research into the positive impact of sport and dance with children with learning disabilities.
Knowing that the AllPlay program has spread its wings to partner with reputable programs like ACEing Autism is a true dream to see the seed of an idea grow on a global scale.
AllPlay Footy making an impact with First Nations peoples across NSW and Victoria!
The team at Moose Happy Kids Foundation is beyond excited to extend their support at AllPlay to include AllPlay Footy which will work with elders in three key communities to learn and evolve the AllPlay model for First Nations Children.
"Many Indigenous children with autism and ADHD are undiagnosed and therefore miss out on services", said Professor Nicole Rinehart, Founder of AllPlay. "We want to bridge that gap through sport because we know group physical activity can be a key positive driver in a child's development."
