The Children’s Movement Center is an indoor multi-sensory environment, where all children come together to play, learn, stretch and grow. The diversity of activities and services available is such that we can provide something for everybody.
The Children’s Movement Center has been founded on belief that everybody benefits from movement and play. By offering a diverse array of activities to children of all ages and abilities, we believe we can have a positive influence on their lives, both in the short term, and in years to come. Come join in!
Our children’s activity center differs from most indoor playgrounds because our play area is designed to stimulate each child's sensory system. The play area offers a creative and innovative space where kids of all ages can climb, jump, swing, glide and feel their way through a diverse array of play environments. Our indoor zip line runs 65 feet across our playroom floor. We have bouncy houses, a giant climbing maze, a surf machine, trampolines, a climbing wall, swings, and a state of the art “Xer Play” system that integrates learning and movement for all ages.
The activity center, while open to daily walk-in traffic, is also available at discounted prices for groups, organizations, fund raisers, and birthday parties. Our party packages include time in the activity center with a zipline ride for everybody, and a dedicated party room for families and friends to gather privately.
To serve our middle school and high school populations, we’ll be holding “Teen Center” nights a couple evenings each month. Teen Center will offer an escape for both teens and their parents. The students will have 3 hours of time to socialize and recreate with friends in a controlled and supervised setting, (everyone will be signed in and out), while parents will hopefully escape for a nice meal and/or a couple hours of peace. kids will enjoy activity rides such as the surfing machine pictured to the left. This ride simulates surfing and promotes muscular development and coordination in a fun and safe environment.
In addition to The Children’s Movement Center’s play/recreation areas, we have a large exercise studio where group classes are held on a daily basis. Our classes, which are scheduled to begin in October, include music exploration, an intro to yoga - for children, and “Mommy & Me” exercise classes. Additionally, a selection of unique therapeutically based classes are being held which will target children from various special populations. Some of these offerings include: “Teaching Baby To Move”, “The Balance Challenge”, and “Sensory Soup”.
In November, we’ll be opening our Pre-School, before school and after school programs. Our Pre-school, for children 3-5 years old, has a full curriculum and is educationally based, while still affording all enrollees daily access to our activity center. The before school and after school programs are designed for families that need supervision for their children beyond the hours of a normal school day. Attendees will have supervised homework and play time in the activity center.
