The mums behind KL Kids are Renee Beasley (mum to Hannah age 8, Sofie age 3 and Mia newborn), Shontelle Allwood (mum to Ethan age 10, Owen age 8 and Lola age 3) and Kelly Chivers (mum to Billy age 14 and Jake age 11). We have all lived in KL for over five years and are still discovering new and great things to do with our families. As we have a range of ages and prefered activities between us, we hope that there will be something for everyone!
Shontelle and Renee first met each other at a community organized playgroup when Sofie and Lola were still tiny bubs, as our girls were much younger then most of the other children who attended, we decided to branch off and start our own playgroup. As the babies grew older we wanted the playgroup to evolve with our kids so we started adding trips, new venues, holiday and cultural celebrations and weekly activities. Follow our weekly playgroup posts, you may find ideas to pass on to your local playgroup. While many of these are KL specific you will also find general ideas that can be used anywhere. please feel free to send us any ideas you have for playgroup activities, as all parents know, it is often through other parents we find the best ideas!
Kelly met Shontelle via school when she first came to KL and their sons who were 7 at the time became best friends. It was through Shontelle that Kelly met Renee. Kelly hopes to bring something for the older kids, which with a teenager in the house she knows is not always easy! We are looking to share information on sports clubs, activities, family holiday spots, birthday party venues, shopping and maybe dealing with those teenager years!
