I’m happy to announce that I have been chosen as a Kidgrade Ambassador for the 2011-2012 school year! Kidgrade.com is an awesome site that lets you rate how kid-friendly places around the Chicagoland area are. Here is more information about the site:
Once you become a member of the site it’s easy to “grade” a place. You just login, rate the location, and you also have the option of leaving comments.
Our first group meetup was at a place called Kookaburra Play Cafe. The children played, we enjoyed snacks and chatting with one another, and also learned more about our role as Kidgrade Ambassadors. While there we graded the location:
As you can see the location information is provided including address, hours, and pictures of the play area. The location was also graded on price, location, parking, and if it was kid-equipped. Instead of heading out to a place without knowing much about it you can head to Kidgrade.com and see what real parents think about the location! What a great idea!
(Disclosure: I did not receive compensation for posting about Kidgrade or the meetup at Kookaburra Play Cafe but I am receiving special perks as an ambassador and received a gift bag from Kidgrade. All thoughts are my own.)
