We’re introducing Greenwich Moms and their awesome website that serves as a one-stop-source for all things parenting and kid-friendly.
We had the opportunity to chat with Layla, a mom who knows it all about Greenwich. Take a read at our Q&A and learn all about GreenwichMoms.com.
Q: What inspired and led you to create the site, Greenwich Moms?
I grew up in Greenwich and I knew from the moment I left, that I wanted to come back and raise my family here. Even for me, being a long time resident, I found that I really needed to re-discover the town from the point of view of a mom. So why not make it easier by having everything mom-related at your fingertips! (It is equally as much for me as everyone else!)
The success of GreenwichMoms.com has caught on quickly. We have partnered with moms in nearby towns to make this valuable resource available…hyper-local… 24/7.
We applaud our partners for successful launches of New Canaan Moms and Darien Moms with more to come!
Q: What kind of information can someone find on your site? What makes it unique?
GreenwichMoms.com was founded with the simple goal of giving moms the gift of time! We provide a comprehensive collection of resources about the local community, and opportunities to connect and engage with families nearby, to learn from… and support one another! We also create and maintain strong partnerships with businesses that help our readers navigate their town and their role as a parent.
The website includes a calendar of events in the area, a place for sharing your own experiences and connecting to other families, a guide to neighborhood stores and restaurants, an introduction to the local school system—and also general information helpful to all families including tips for healthy and happy living, local insights, new product reviews, and articles and posts highlighting the joyous confusion that comes along with being a parent.
GreenwichMoms.com offers two blogs—one of which spotlights a kid friendly event every day, and the other which covers everything else having to do with parenting in Greenwich (and beyond). We have made supporting local moms and inspiring, strong, mom entrepreneurs. a major part of our role as a community-building website.
Finally, we feature a local mom every other week. What better way to create a sense of community than to introduce ourselves to one another?
Q: Being a long-time resident of Greenwich, CT yourself, what are some of your favorite things to do around the city (town) with your little ones?
My favorite family friendly event of the year, Go Wild!, is coming up soon! A number of our friends in NYC bring their families to Greenwich for the day to join the fun. I’m a kid at heart and pulling up to an event with three giant hot air balloons makes me just as excited as the kids. It is the perfect way to end a fun filled summer.
GreenwichMoms.com also hosts a number of events. Our event at JCrew is one that stands out as we continue to bring families together and offer opportunities for moms to enjoy a cup of coffee and shop for themselves while storytellers and creative workshops keep the kids entertained. Our next event is coming up on September 17th!
I love being outdoors with the kids. From an afternoon at Tod’s Point beach to apple picking in the Fall, I can only hope that our kids will one day realize how lucky they are to have the town of Greenwich as their playground.
