About Us

www.greatergeelongkids.com.au is an information portal that links members and child friendly services and businesses within the Greater Geelong community. Keeping your business, you and your children up to date with things to explore, play, shop and see.

Bellarine and Greater Geelong Kids are designed for anyone who has the pleasurable company of kids. Particularly, parents, guardians, carers, aunts, uncles, grandparents, and siblings who live in or are visiting the Bellarine or Geelong area and who would like some help with finding anything and everything local for their children to explore, eat, play, see or shop.

Our live website www.bellarinekids.com.au is currently a great hub for advertising local retail or hospitality businesses, homemade clothing, baking, toy lines, groups, children's programs etc, and is guaranteed an easy site for users to navigate. Greater Geelong Kids and Great Ocean Road Kids will also be linked to Bellarine Kids and all three will work together to promote the local goodness that the Greater Geelong area provides.

Whilst ‘word of mouth’ is fantastic, it is easy to forget the name of that place or that business that is having lunch specials or where/when the next children's market is! When I have sat with fellow parents at a Mother's Group or simply on a park bench watching the children play, I have noticed how similar conversations inevitably occur. I have found that people are more than willing to share their expertise when asked and that there is an abundance of local talent and resources right here within our community. It's great to know where that 'home-made' dress came from or even where to get your child's first haircut.

Along with Bellarine Kids, Greater Geelong Kids will be an information portal that contains all of the answers to the things parents and caregivers like to know. A quick search on an unplanned day could also result in: the location of a new recreational park, identification of a great local business deal such as a two for one smoothie at a nearby café, and a reminder that Storytime is on at the local library. Thanks to Greater Geelong Kids, an unplanned day could easily turn into a busy and fulfilling morning!

Stacey and Bellarine Kids at Ocean Grove

My name is Stacey and I have lived in Ocean Grove with my husband and two daughters for a little over seven years. I have been working with children for over fifteen years, as an indoor sports co-ordinator, in various crèche and daycare centres, and also as a graphic artist. Since re-locating to Ocean Grove I am now employed as education support, a casual sales assistant and also a junior gym and fitness instructor. It is in this very busy role that I have recognised the need for an easy to access and community relevant site that specialises in all things for kids in this beautiful Bellarine area.

We are really enjoying the sense of community and support that Geelong offers, and discovering all the fantastic small businesses (often family run) that are out there. Following on from the great success and feedback from our sister website Bellarine Kids, Greater Geelong Kids has been developed to extend the reach of information and we are excited to bring it to you!

You can now follow and be a part of ‘Greater Geelong Kids’ on Facebook and you can find our soon to be launched website www.greatergeelongkids.com.au in the very near future. If you would like to be a part of this exciting initiative please email me at stacey@greatergeelongkids.com.au for our advertising rates.

Greater Geelong Kids will do their best to keep all advertised information up to date and correct, providing direct links to the businesses website for further, detailed information.

 

Stacey has done a fantastic job at getting so many Bellarine businesses on board. She has a clear mission and determination to see people with children experience the very best the Bellarine has to offer. 

Well done Stacey for initiating such a great resource for our community.

I think Bellarine Kids is a wonderful innovation.

If your business has anything to do with kids you just have to be a part of it!
