From bumps to teens, we have it covered!  This is your one-stop site for everything you need to know about living in Bournemouth with children.

If you have recently moved to the area, this is a great place to start to get to know the area: the schools, doctors surgeries, out of hours help, places to meet new friends, activities for the children, after school clubs, private tutors, party entertainers among much more.

And, if you have lived in Bournemouth for years, like myself, I can promise you that you will discover new amenities, entertainment and things to do! I thought I knew most of what was going on in the town, being a mum to 2 and a foster mum to 3 children but creating this website has opened my eyes to how much we actually have in this area and how very lucky we are! Did you know we have Cheerleading clubs, Beach Horse Rides and even Battlefield Live activities in the New Forest !

I will be continually adding to this site to keep it current and relevant and aim to be a fully comprehensive guide for information about what's on, things to do and children's activities locally! I hope you enjoy it!
