Dear parents, Hi from a first time mama blogger…

Dear parents,

This is my first blog entry as a mama blogger for the new city guide for families with kids in Switzerland. I am so excited to announce, today is the day I am launching my project and the Family First Switzerland website.

Almost a year ago I’ve started thinking about creating something, something helpful, colorful, urban, resourceful and sophisticated for families with kids. I didn`t know what it was exactly, but I was sure it was something that I, as a parent would find useful myself. Something like a one-stop-shop for information on what’s on for kids and their parents in town.

I started to research on what is really urban parents are looking for to stay informed on things available for their kids. Asking my friends and random parents I was surprised to discover that actually they are overwhelmed by too many information coming from too many different sources, flayers, websites and social media and that makes it complicated for them to follow. Also, a lot of expat parents felt left alone by not able to access information in German language and therefore they didn`t sometimes participate in local activities for kids. Despite of a lot of information coming from too many different sources, parents both local and expats, were ready to have a new city guide created especially for their needs: an easy to use, resourceful website in form of a city guide for families with kids.

My first city was Zurich, which I love and where I live and rise my child. I have collected around 500 different address for family and kids in and around Zurich, all recommended by other local parents and their kids. It’s been 7 month of hard work and now my baby Family First is ready to step in into a big happy world surrounding by active, smart and funny children and their amazing parents.

Enjoy Family First, use all its resources, share with us your recommendations and spread the word to your friends and family and come back more often, there is will be more to come!

With best regards and big love,
Elena
