Who we are

Whether you are a Mom or Dad, a Grandparent or a caregiver, an Austin newcomer, an expecting, first-time, or been-there-done-that parent, we all want the best for our kids. However, we sometimes just don’t know where to start, where to look, and where to find the help we need in order to pick out the right daycare or preschool, to decide on where to send our kids to dance class or soccer practice, how to find a pediatrician or a specialist, where to get ideas for our little one’s birthday party, or to simply exchange experiences with other Moms and Dads.

Well, parenting and taking care of kids (in Austin) just got a little easier.

Wait – what? Who said that?

We did. Just a normal Mom and Dad of two pre-school aged girls, who were all of the above (except Grandparents) and who would have loved to have a site like LiveGrowPlayAustin.com to guide them through the first years of parenthood in Austin. Luckily, we have many years of parenting ahead of us so that we will benefit from and give back to the Live Grow Play Austin community ourselves in the coming years.

So here’s what Live Grow Play Austin’s all about:

  • Live Grow Play Austin Directory: Find health and childcare providers, schools, camps, arts, music, sports, and other things to do in the 512. Best thing: you can search by age, category, and location.

  • Live Grow Play Austin Ratings and Reviews: Was that restaurant kid-friendly? How's your day care, pediatrician, or summer camp? Rate and review everything listed in the directory and contribute to making Austin’s parents’ and caregivers’ lives a little easier.

  • Live Grow Play Austin Community: Ask questions, provide answers, make new friends, get the scoop, buy and sell, or just join in on the conversations of Moms and Dads and caregivers just like you.

  • Live Grow Play Austin Events Calendar: Don’t miss out on Austin’s oh-so-many events for the whole family and see what your fellow Austinites think about them.

For businesses Live Grow Play Austin provides a marketing platform with advertising opportunities for local businesses, big or small, and with any size marketing budget. A Free Plan includes a free business listing in the directory with the option to upgrade to a Basic or an All Access Plan which allows for many additional cool features.

Nonprofit organizations receive an All Access Plan at no charge. Plus, we will donate 5% of our annual revenue to one of Austin’s children-oriented nonprofit organizations, since we firmly believe that every child deserves to live, grow, and play.

What more can we say? Live. Grow. Play. Every day.

Your fellow Austinites,
Birgit + Curtis
