What We Do...

KidTribe's mission is to create positive programming for children that educates, empowers and entertains. 

We engage children through producing original animation, live action and musical content that evokes learning, laughter, compassion and curiosity.

We encourage kids and communities to experience the joy of music, dance and movement with our high-octane events and school assemblies.

We develop inclusive programs that teach core academics through Physical Activity, Social-Emotional Learning and the Arts.

We ignite young minds with our standards-based  interdisciplinary curricula that is designed for all learning styles. 

We energize teachers to take their passion and expertise to the next level in our Staff Development Trainings.

We create campaigns and collaborate with  partnering organizations to bring initiatives to life in a meaningful, measurable, memorable way.

We speak to audiences around the world about the importance of raising a healthy, happy, whole generation of children.

We love kids and believe in their unlimited potential.

We also have a ridiculous amount of fun.
