What is Grand Rapids Kids?

[quote] I somehow stumbled across you in your first year. You have been an amazing resource for me and my 3 year old. I have had people tell me they are amazed at all I do with her and I always say the activities are from your calendar. I don’t know what I would do without it. Well, yes I do…my house may be a bit cleaner because I would be at home more often 😛 But a messy house means my children are having fun! Thanks for the past 3 years, I can’t wait for the next (well maybe I can because then my 3-year-old will be a 6-year-old!). Thanks again for all you do! – Heather [/quote]



Grand Rapids Kids is more than just a website!

It is a tool that can help you find things to do with your family in the Greater Grand Rapids area! Click through day by day on the Event Calendar and you will be amazed at the variety of activities in our region. Visit the Grand Rapids Kids Blog to read about our adventures, contests, reviews of local activities & venues, and more. Post your opinions and see what other local parents are saying on our Facebook Page. Spend time researching with our amazing Guides: including preschools, music, dance, consignment sales & more.

We think you’ll be amazed at how much information is in one easy place. And, even better…it is free for you to use! [/one_half_alpha]


GRkids.com started as a hobby.

What was once an event calendar for friends in a MOPS group blossomed into a full-service website for area families as word about the extensive collection of information spread.

Today a small team of moms works on the website doing all sorts of fun jobs. Our mission is “to strengthen area families through meaningful activities and information,” so you’ll find us advocating for family time and promoting activities that provide time for your family to bond. But you’ll also hear us talk about date nights and Mom’s (or Dad’s!) Day Out, too.  Because we get it. We’re parents and we know that you need to rest and rejuvenate before heading back into “the zone.”  [/one_half_omega]


We hope you’ll let us partner with you as your family grows up.  And if you’re happy with what we’ve done here, please take a moment to share the site with your friends and family- especially those who may be new to parenthood.
