This is your go-to site for everything you need to know about living in St Albans with kids. We are Caroline and Emily: two local mums with four kids between us.

Activities, things to do, parties, local facilities, services and child-friendly businesses in St Albans & surrounding villages can now all be found at the click of a button!

We’re up and running despite Coronavirus and busier than ever making sure our website and social media brings you the latest of what’s available to you virtually!   




For anyone who doesn't know what to do with all the toys, clothes and equipment your children have grown out of, or who is looking for kids’ stuff for free, there is a brilliant new app that has just launched across Hertfordshire called YoungPlanet https://www.youngplanet.com.

It enables you to pass on kids' stuff to people who need it, declutter your home, keep usable items out of landfill and build communities of people who love sharing things. People have passed on everything from prams, cots, bouncers and car seats to toys, clothes, breast pumps and nappies to other families.

Over 4000 people are already using it in London (where it's been going for over a year with huge success) and it's now available to anyone in St Albans and surrounding areas

There is no catch - it's completely free: free to download and free to use, so sign up now and help us have a positive impact on our planet

If you love it as much as we do, please spread the word to all your friends, as the more people who use it, the more families we can make happy and the more we can reduce our waste
