As a parent living in Halifax, Nova Scotia, there are a lot of things my wife and I are always searching for. What daycares are out there, where can we take the kids on a Sunday and where are the best places to eat (that are kid friendly). If we are looking, I bet a lot of other parents are too.
So this page will be all about Halifax for parents. I will do my best to include the best resources to help you find what you need. Are you a local business and want your website listed? Just let me know and I will be more than happy. That includes promoting upcoming events and functions.
For those of you not from around here, I will also do my best to feature Halifax and area as best I can. It is a great place to live and to raise kids. The ocean air, the small town feel, the ever-changing weather (wait? what?).
This page will be under constant updates, so check back often as the blog grows.
For more local resources as a parent, I suggest checking out these websites.
