1/4
The Concerned Kids educates children through the uniquely engaging art of puppetry, empowering young people to make smarter and kinder choices, and further enabling schools and communities to become safer places to live, learn and play.

Our Bullying Prevention Program helps students identify bullying situations and offers strategies to help them stand up for themselves and others. We explore the importance of expressing our feelings, talking about our problems and working together to resolve disagreements in a constructive and considerate way. We strive to educate children about the issue of bullying, to promote sensitivity toward peers, and to provide strategies to help children cope with and avoid bullying situations. 

OUR PROGRAMS

Puppets in School

The Concerned Kids’ education curriculum uses a non-threatening medium of interactive puppetry to introduce a number of sensitive topics to elementary school aged children and community organizations all over the city of Toronto and the surrounding GTA.  We empower young people through the creative medium of puppetry.

Golden Years Troupe

Our Golden Year Troupe will bring together 10 - 15 seniors to develop a new program geared at educating seniors using the medium of puppetry. 

Art Intensive Camp

TCK's Arts Intensive, brings together 15 youth in a five-day intensive where they will explore the art of puppetry through daily script writing sessions and multiple workshops in theatre, puppetry, visual arts, videography, creative writing and music. The program will culminate in May, when we will host a performance screening of the youth’s work.

Storytime with Brian

Story-time with Brian, Puppets & Reading program is an interactive experience where a puppet character reads a “themed” storybook to your preschool, FDK class or group. A puppeteer operating a life-sized puppet friend will read a storybook that takes our audience on  an adventure through characters, voices, and illustration. 

Puppets at Camp

Need help animating your camp? TCK Art Intensive and Theatre Interactive Experiences are a customizable one-day or multi-day art intensives at your camp. The programs will be facilitated by professional artists, puppeteers and early childhood educators. Whether it's our Showcases or Art Intensives, participants are in for a day of fun and excitement.
