our beginnings

How Jozikids got started in Gauteng. What our listers, site visitors and the media say about Jozikids, the directory designed to make it easy to find what's out there for kids and families.

Finding out what's on offer for kids in the dispersed and fragmented city of Johannesburg, is often daunting. I struggled for years with 2 small children of my own to find pottery, swimming or gymnastics teachers, child-friendly restaurants, museums, kids' entertainment or any ideas for day outings. I was looking for an in-depth resource and online children's directory with choices and recommendations. There was none, so I set myself the task of creating a resource that children, parents and teachers could use on a daily basis.

Jozikids was born to help make all our lives easier, to showcase the myriad of family friendly, child-oriented services, products, event planning and activities in the biggest shopping centre imaginable, the internet, with its unlimited space and possibilities. It's the solution for frustrated moms, dads, teachers, caregivers or visitors who never know where to look to find what they need whether it's a day outing, extra-mural activities, furniture, clothing, clowns, face painters, that special party venue or an educational school outing.

My kids and I now regularly visit the site together to check out what's new, what's happening and what to do in the whole of Gauteng, from Johannesburg to Pretoria , the East Rand to the West Rand.

Jozikids is unique, it's designed to help you find the best for your kids and to share your experiences. We hope you find it useful and would love to hear what you think! Contact us now and send us your comments.
