Our Story

Follow us here

Today it’s hard for busy parents to know and keep track of exactly what and who is part of their child’s village.  There are early years educators and care providers as well as activities for pre-schoolers.  Then there are schools, before- and after-school clubs and care providers, holiday programmes and structured activities in sport, arts and communities.

My Kids Village is based on parents sharing their real-life community networks with other parents in their neighbourhood.  If you and your child have a great provider you’d like other parents to know about, please invite them to sign up.  It’s completely free!

Providers include schools, childcare centres, kindy, Playcentres, in-home childcare, sports activities, art and drama activities, playgroups, school holiday programmes… the list goes on!

If you have any more questions or feedback we would love to hear from you.

I founded My Kids Village when my daughter was reaching school age.  I had very little idea about the options for her care or education in our local area, in South Wellington.  I wanted to know about after-school care, holiday programmes and other activities, but the information was really hard to find.

I realised other parents were having the same problem and so I started My Kids Village.
