LET'S MAKE THIS SIMPLE.
In 2013, Calie Herbst, a former teacher with three little ones, was frustrated with how much time she spent searching way too many websites to find fun events & activities for families. So she founded Milwaukee With Kids. Her goal was to find the best this city has to offer families and share it with other parents. In one place.
Today, Calie and her team take the work out of finding fun for kids & families around Milwaukee. They connect active parents and caregivers to the city’s best kid-friendly businesses, activities and events every day via:
A Daily Calendar of events organized by region
A Weekend Guide of top weekend events
A weekly eNewsletter & popular social media channels
Partnerships with nearly 100 local businesses and organizations that share our passion for making Milwaukee a great (and fun) place to raise a family. (Learn more about advertising with us!)
We run Milwaukee With Kids according to a set of values that we hold dear:
Integrity: We do what we say, and we're honest.
High Standards: We strive for our work to be the very best it can be, we're committed to growth and self-improvement, and we're forward thinking.
Resourcefulness: We're nimble, multi-faceted, and we take ownership of our work.
Results-Driven: We're intentional and thoughtful with our content and in our partnerships. We want our readers to love what they see, and we want our partners to get the results they seek.
Fun: We love our work, and we don't take ourselves too seriously. (Seriously!)
Balance: Our team is made up of women who are balancing careers, families, and their own interests. And we encourage that.
