New year, new you, new activities for your kids. Is this is the year that Sam wants to learn to play the violin? Or Suzie wants to take up dancing? Or you need to find John a new lacrosse camp? It can be tough navigating all the options for classes, programs and camps. In 2018, let other moms help you. How? Through KidGooRoo, a new site that offers the most comprehensive listings of kids’ activities - from arts to sports to mommy and me - by town, city and region - along with unbiased reviews from other parents. It's a free resource for parents to use and for businesses to list, making it a great resource for both.
KidGooRoo lists every activity by category with real reviews and ratings from other (insert city/state) parents who have experienced these programs. So you can see what other local parents think – if the dance teacher is too strict, the soccer camp is too competitive or the baby gym is clean. Reviews can be written anonymously, to ensure impartiality. Parents are helping other parents to make better choices so they can raise happy kids and ensure they’re in safe, supportive and motivating environments. You wouldn’t book a vacation, try a new restaurant, or buy a car without first reading reviews and ratings, why entrust the growth and development of your child to an extracurricular activity without first researching it? And if you know a business that should be listed on KidGooRoo, let them know. Help them help you!
KidGooRoo also has a program where they sponsor local school organizations such as PTOs or education foundations. For every review parents write on KidGooRoo, the company will donate $2 to the parent’s educational organization. It’s a really effective way to raise money for your local school organization. Check out KidGooRoo for more information about how to start your own school fundraiser.
Let 2018 be the year you pay it forward and help other parents find the best activities for their kids – and let them help you do the same.
