Virtual Puppetry Performances

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. In order to stay relevant with what students face on a daily basis, The Concerned Kids has adjusted its programming to better align to the realities of School Curriculums.

Accepting Differences

The Accepting Differences Program encourages students to respect and embrace each other’s unique abilities. The scripts explore some of the ways that people can be different, providing examples of physical differences (visual impairment and cerebral palsy), learning differences (ADHD), and developmental differences (autism). Students are reminded that everyone has different strengths and challenges and that we all have our own ways of learning and achieving our goals.

Bullying Prevention

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 bullying, promote sensitivity toward peers, and provide strategies to help children cope with and avoid bullying situations.
