|KIDsorted.com helps parents discover great local kids activities
KIDsorted.com helps parents discover great local kids activities during October Half Term and beyond.
School holidays are a great time for children to try out something new, yet parents often struggle to find all the information in one place to see what is on offer in their local area. KIDsorted is a business created by parents for parents, and we would like to help.
We curated all the best activities in West London and have created an online database so parents can search by postcode, age of child and interest.
We’ve heard over and over from parents how difficult it is to find the best activities locally, especially during the school holidays. In setting up KIDsorted.com, we are trying to make that process simple and fast, with only one site to search and one place to pay. This is especially useful for working parents who don’t always have the benefit of conversations at the school gate.
KIDsorted supports local small businesses
In supporting KIDsorted.com, you will be helping small local businesses get in touch with parents. Flyers in shop windows are useful, but they can only go so far. We offer kids activity suppliers a free listing and the potential to take online bookings as well as bringing them together with pool of parents who are specifically searching for kids activities.
Where’s the catch?
There isn’t one! We make our money from advertising and from the added services we offer businesses listing with us. Parents never pay fees and businesses can always have a free listing. We want to provide a service that makes it easy as possible for both small businesses and parents to achieve success.
KIDsorted was created by parents, for parents!
The founders of KIDsorted.com, Anshu and Julia, first met working at eBay in Richmond and were both fully focused on their corporate careers. We were child-free and still had time to go to the pub without having to organise a babysitter…but times have changed.
Anshu now has a beautiful daughter, Aanya, 4 years old, a son, Aayush, 6 months old, and Julia has 1-year-old twins. Discussion topics in our circle of friends have moved from the hottest weekend trip destinations to the best pre-schools, kids party venues or where to find a music class that is walking distance and fits into the 3:30pm after-school slot. We realised that this research process was cumbersome: from social media posts (“Help – does anybody know a great venue for my 3-year-old’s birthday party, not too expensive and in Chiswick?”), to doing research across dozens of sites, which often didn’t contain the information we were looking for, to the nagging feeling that there is probably some great stuff out there that we can’t even find with Google. And that’s not even taking into account the booking process. Being asked to send a cheque by post for a class and fax/post a registration form seemed to be part of the standard process. We both worried that our children wouldn’t attend many activities simply because their time-deprived mothers did not manage print/fill out/mail the registration form on time before the class filled up!
And then it hit us: Parents don’t have the time to research every single class out there, and they should not have to. We set ourselves the goal to create a one-stop online destination, allowing parents like us to browse a great range of activities, services and events based on what is important (age range, schedule, location, type of activity), to simply compare details and schedule, and to book online straight away. And this is how KIDsorted.com was born.
Our mission is to make discovery of the best classes and activities in a specific area extremely easy and quick to book on the go. Are you looking for a great half term camp or want to find out what’s on for families in your neighbourhood? Come and visit www.kidsorted.com and check out what we have on offer.
