Heather Hurley-Cook, PT founded Confident Kidz to address the community's needs in providing structured and skilled therapy in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Some kids do not meet the criteria required to receive therapy and some children require a little bit more than what is offered. Heather founded Confident Kidz to bridge that gap. Confident Kidz' small group setting gives the ability to tailor the movement class to reach each individual child. Each child should be given the opportunity to move, explore and engage in his or her surroundings with little to no limitations. Confident Kidz' programs works to overcome those obstacles while still maintaining the playfulness that kids enjoy.
