Online information hub for Brisbane Parents launches today
|Wednesday, 01 August 2012 14:34|
|Brisbaneâ€™s most comprehensive search directory website for parents of kids aged 0 â€“ 16 launches today.
Kidstodo.com.au features the same in-depth search functionality and useability as well known search directories realestate.com.au and seek.com.au.
Offering free membership to parents, www.kidstodo.com.au provides detailed written and pictorial information on over 700 playgrounds, along with a huge range of outdoor facilities, free activities and events in Brisbane, the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast.
Kidstodo.com.au offers more search criteria than any other similar website, allowing parents to search by age group, twins and special needs requirements, public transport accessibility and wet weather options.
Unlike national search directories, Kidstodo.com.au focuses solely on Brisbane and the Coasts, with information filtered by region (North, South, East, West, Moreton Bay, Ipswich etc). Parents can download a local calendar of activities and events for their area.
A year in the making, the site was devised by Brisbane mother of 2 year old twin boys, Karen Ghidella. A time poor working parent, Karen found she was unable to find comprehensive, local, up to date online information on kidsâ€™ activities, playgrounds and events. Information was either too broad in terms of location, not easily accessible or reviews were out of date.
Kidstodo.com.au goes beyond typical search directories and is a goldmine of information for Brisbane parents. Parents can download free planning guides, shopping lists, â€˜husband to do listsâ€™ and toddler learning activities. The site also features regular childrenâ€™s book and movie reviews, helping parents make informed decisions on what their children read and watch.
Phase two of the website is in planning now and when launched later this year, will include reviews of a huge range of childrenâ€™s services, shopping and online resources. Kidstodo.com.au aims to be a one stop, easily accessible online hub of information for Brisbane parents.
