WASHINGTON, Nov. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Kid Up and Go, a mobile-friendly, patent-pending website, launched earlier this year in the D.C. metro area with the mission of becoming the preeminent resource for parents and child care providers. Kid Up and Go founder Jennifer Spatz-Martin plans on expanding to other cities in 2017. Spatz-Martin applies her experience as Ein's COO for almost eight years and her executive position with a medical device startup for over four years to develop the new company.
A user can search for kid or family-friendly events and activities, pediatric medical professionals, community resources, and read posts that cover a variety of topics including reviews of places, products and things to do. Using the site is completely free and offers tailored "things to do" updates by setting up a profile and a "my favorites" option. Area businesses can submit an event for free to the site and users have the ability to rate and provide feedback on their experiences.
"There are a bunch of amazing bloggers and websites for events and activities in the D.C. metro area, which are included under the resources section, but none of them collected and organized all of my parenting needs in one place," said Spatz-Martin. "Being a D.C.-area resident for the past 14 years while raising three kids has provided valuable insight on what needed to be included in the initial launch so that parents and child care providers truly have a one-stop resource."
"My awareness of area happenings for my family has always been by random social media posts or word of mouth. Now, with Kid Up and Go, I have this user-friendly and comprehensive resource to know exactly what's going on around the District. It has made the whole process of planning quick and easy," shared Katie Heaton, mom of two.
