About Us

Our mission is to reinforce and further develop confidence, self-esteem and stage presence in children through music, sport & culture

Hello. My name is Kirt Milligin-I am the co-owner and Program Director at FYI Kids. I am an accomplished singer with over 7 years of professional vocal training, and I have been working with children for over 15 years.  I am certified in First Aid, CPR and Braille, and registered with Coaches Association of Ontario (CAO), as is our President, Dwayne Dixon. 



My name is Dwayne Dixon and nothing gives me greater joy than to bring the inner-artist out in each child. Like Kirt, I also have an extensive history working with children/youth.  That experience coupled with my background as a music industry professional makes our program second to none.  Together we encourage children to follow their instinct and express themselves artistically.  Follow Your Instinct (FYI) Kids, is all about empowering youth to think grand to get big!

Our Philosophy

What is a phobia? Well by definition, a phobia is an extreme or irrational fear of or aversion to something.  We all have fears, both realized and unrealized.  And we all think we know what the #1 fear is amongst people, do you? Some might say death, fear of flying, or arachnophobia (fear of spiders).  While they all rank high on the list, the #1 fear amongst people is Glossophobia, also known as, the fear of public speaking!! 

At one point or another, we will all have to speak in front of an audience, be it it small or large.  At FYI Kids, we believe that being exposed to public speaking at a younger age, will not only help children gain the much needed confidence many lack, but it will also assist in their development into society as an adult.  

At FYI Kids, we focus on overcoming those fears through a variety of performing arts, sports, and cultural activities.  Not only do we believe that children need a voice, here at FYI Kids we also give them an ear!
