Enhancing children's emotional and intellectual growth through the arts is a long-term investment in a strong and healthy society.
Kinderfest is an intimate multi-arts festival that supports the emotional and intellectual development of children ages 0 – 6 with aesthetically rich performances designed to captivate and stimulate young minds.
Early childhood is a formative time, serving as the foundation upon which all of life’s later endeavours are built. Kinderfest brings celebrated artists and arts companies from Ontario, Canada and around the world to our community to deepen the network of early years arts activities across the region and to share artistic expertise, knowledge and resources.
Professional Learning Access sessions for artists and educators working with young children provide a variety of approaches and activities to engage infants and toddlers with the arts to support their development.
Recognizing the early years as a period of unique opportunity for the development of our children, and enhancing their emotional and intellectual growth through the arts is a long-term investment in a strong and healthy society.
