Our Values

We believe that our products can make a difference and that we can help turn today’s children into tomorrow’s innovators. We focus on providing products which inspire learning and make teaching more enjoyable, backed up by fantastic customer service and competitive pricing.


Product Development

Our MD, Tim Coote, set up Commotion group with the objective of “never becoming another faceless supplier churning out products without an understanding of their use or able to offer detailed advice to teachers.” All our products are carefully developed against a background of strong educational value and an uncompromising idea of our company’s values and philosophy. We work with teachers and educational advisors to make sure that each of our products delivers the objectives of motivating interest and developing core skills in specific subject areas. Got an idea for a product you think can excite students and inspire learning? We’d love to hear from you!


Corporate Social Responsibility

FSCWe work hard to inspire young people... so naturally we care about the world they grow up in! Have a look at our Environmental Policy to see how we’re working towards becoming a greener and more sustainable business.

What Our Customers Say...

"As a nursery that has been established since 2001, we have used many different companies to purchase our equipment. However, your company and Community play comes on top. We would like to congratulate you for the outstanding quality of equipment that any childcare setting would love to have. We look forward to becoming a long term customer."
Jana Hassan, Manager of Harmony Neighborhood Nursery, London.

"I called your company, in a panic, to purchase some resources rather urgently and your Customer Service Team could not have been more helpful. They gave the best customer service I've experienced."
Lisa Morris, Head of Geography, Bramhall High School, Stockport.

"I would like to bring to your attention the excellent service that we have received from a member of staff. They have been so kind, patient, professional and pleasant when dealing with our order. I particularly appreciated the fact that they went out of their way to measure the outdoor clothing that we were interested in."
Geraldine McClenaghan, Principal, Holy Child Nursery School, Belfast.
