Project Commotion's Mission is to foster healthy development in children of all abilities through purposeful movement, play, and family and community relationships.
Our knowledgeable, nurturing and passionate instructors engage children in specialized movement programs, enhancing their brain-body connection, increasing self-regulation, developing empathy and building self-confidence. We partner with families and support educators in understanding the critical value of integrating quality movement experiences in daily life.
The philosophy of Project Commotion is based on the belief that every person is an individual with unique experiences and perspectives, and a unique nervous system and body that affects how one functions in the world. Project Commotion's method is to meet children where they are, particularly based on their physical capabilities, sensory awareness, and brain development, and bridge them to the next step in their developmental process.
We build relationships directly with our students, their families, and the greater community. These relationships establish a foundation for the success of our programs, supporting the mind/body health of all individuals.
We cultivate an intentional environment that is responsive to children’s needs by utilizing developmentally-appropriate equipment, respecting individual boundaries, and maintaining an intimate teacher-student ratio.
Movement & Sensory Motor Experiences
Movement and sensory motor experiences are fundamental to all that we do. Handstanding, spinning, hanging, crashing on mats, and cartwheeling encourages active brains and bodies that help children develop self-regulation and healthy social behavior.
Commitment to Diversity
We are committed to creating an inclusive space that embraces all cultures, abilities, genders, socioeconomic backgrounds, and languages, ensuring equal access to all children and families that partner with us.
Healthy Communities & Wellness
We encourage an active lifestyle and promote physical and emotional wellness by suggesting healthy food options, offering movement as an outlet for stress, and fostering human interaction.
We recognize play as an important daily practice that is crucial for the development of people of all ages and stages of life.
