THE CHILDREN’S IMAGINATION ACADEMY 
nourishing the whole child

The Children’s Imagination Academy (CiA) is Aotearoa / New Zealand’s first one day school dedicated to nourishing your Child as a whole, unique being.

As far as education goes, we understand the need for your Child to be seen and understood for who they really are – and we invite you to join us in planting this seed.

Like us, you may also see the need (backed by the recent statistics about national concern for adolescent mental health) for every Child to have the opportunity to establish a positive and enduring relationship with themselves from the early developmental years.

Our one day school, founded on wellbeing and creativity programmes, provides the soil for lifelong learning, cultivating unique growth pathways, standing strong as who we are, finding solutions and co-creating the best world imaginable.

empowering your extraordinary child

The Children’s Imagination Academy (CiA) is here to take a heart-centered stand for a new education evolution for our young, enduring health and being true to oneself.

Our focus on iMAGiNATiON immediately connects children with the realm of possibility, positive change and a future of bright-minded, resourceful and courageous change makers who follow their hearts, inner wisdom and take a stand for all they believe in as they grow into mature human beings.

Our values are conscious parenting, child-centered learning and evolving to meet collective needs through ever-challenging global times.

The Children’s Imagination Academy (CiA) One Day School is open Mondays in Ohinehou / Lyttelton, Otautahi / Christchurch and is especially for tamariki / children aged 6-12 years.

“What I like most is the focus on teaching the children about the importance of take care of themselves, of their feelings. How to get calm when they are feeling anxious or angry. My son has been sharing his recently acquired knowledge with all of us. Now my kids ask me if I need a hug when I look upset. (This simple question is powerful and magic and automatically melts my bad mood!). Isn’t it the most wonderful gift we can give to our kids?” MARIA AYALA
