Our grandparents had it right. They knew it took a village to raise a child. Although our village has changed, we live by the same principles. We are moms that strive to do the best for our children. We connect online and provide mom-mom contacts for things like where to get the best kids shoes for our toddler’s wide feet, to the best park for our 15 month old who loves water, to the best school for our special needs kindergartner and more. This is your resource for KIDS ages embryo-5 and their families in the greater Boulder area (Boulder, Erie, Lafayette, Longmont, Louisville, Niwot, Superior and the nooks and crannies thereabouts) and North Denver (Brighton, Broomfield, Dacono, Henderson, Firestone, Frederick, Northglenn, Thornton, Reunion and Westminster,). Join the club.
How We Came To Be:
I had my first child in 2006 and after many hours of research and asking questions of every mom I came across I began to compile a list of best places. I have had two more children since I started to compile my mental list and it is now time to put “pen to paper.” In order to make the initial creation of businesses and activities I either personally visited them or they were suggested by another mom.
