Engaging all students through creative expression

Young Imaginations is a non-profit, charitable organization providing unique and experiential elementary curriculum presentations through the arts.

This curriculum support is delivered by arts consultants and certified teachers working directly with the students and teachers inside the classroom. Using improvisational drama, role-play, storytelling, writing, creative movement, singing and the visual arts, children build confidence, develop listening, communication and problem-solving skills and learn curriculum material while having fun!

Young Imaginations programs develop:

  • Creative literacy
  • Children's Confidence
  • Mentorships
  • Student understanding of Canadian history
  • Interactive drama, dance and visual arts strategies

Young Imaginations approaches the teaching of drama with sensitivity and a good understanding of the developmental stages of children. Young Imagintions has great faith in the power of imagination and fully engages the children through the use of stimulating literature sources.
