Welcome to Nelson Kids!

June 18, 2018

We're excited to have launched our site, and we're so happy you're here to check it out!

🎉 Nelson Kids is Live! 🎉

Our first iteration of Nelson Kids is up and running, where you can browse our growing list of activities, events and resources for kids in Nelson. We're working hard to keep adding new content and functionality, so stay tuned!

Our mission is to make it easy for families to find what they need, and discover Nelson's many opportunities, in one convenient, fun, user-friendly online resource. 

At the same time, we want to support the amazing individuals, businesses and organizations that offer these opportunities to have greater online visibility and be found more easily. We're making connections and keeping our finger on the pulse of our what's going on in our beautiful little mountain town, to keep you up-to-date through our website, social media and newsletter.

We're open to suggestions or requests on how we can best serve our community, so if you've got any feedback for us, feel free to reach out!

Calling all kid-friendly folks:

If you offer classes, coaching, mentoring, tutoring, or other opportunities for babies, kids, youth and families in Nelson or the surrounding area, and you'd like to be listed on Nelson Kids, contact us - we'd love to hear from you! Let us know who you are and what you do, and we'll be in touch to set up your listing or add your event to our calendar.

It will always be free for anyone offering an opportunity to be listed. We'd love to help you reach the families in Nelson that are already looking for what you offer!

Extra visibility for vendors

We also offer opportunities for businesses to be more visible online to families in Nelson, to let them know about the valuable products and services they offer. 

If you’d like to advertise with us, through our blog content, social media ads, contests and/or monthly newsletter, shoot us an email at and we’d love to chat about working together. 

What's Next for Nelson Kids?

We're working each day to expand the usability of the website, add more categories and up-to-date info, and create interesting, helpful content. 

Our next major website update involves adding individual pages for each listing that will include more useful info about each activity or event. We're also working on providing search functionality, as well as an up-to-date monthly calendar of events and other fun stuff happening in and around Nelson.

Thanks so much for checking us out. We feel privileged to be a part of this community, and we're grateful to be contributing to making it a bit easier to learn about the awesome things for local families.

Jess Phillips is Nelson Kids' founder and "Community Connector". She loves getting to know people and helping where she can. Nelson life has been a great change of pace from the big city and Nelson Kids has been a fantastic change of pace from the frantic days of wedding photography. When not scouring the internet for fun stuff for kids to do in Nelson, Jess spends the rest of her time with her family, cooking, organizing and swooning over home design on Pinterest. She hopes to someday learn the art of quilling in her spare time. LOL - "spare time"
