Hi there, my name is Renata Fortes and I’m a web designer. Melbourne for Kids was first designed in 2009 with the aim to help parents finding activities to do with their kids. I developed this project because I had a lot of friends that were stay at home Mums and they couldn’t find activities to entertain themselves and the kids. As a web designer I thought I could help by developing a very simple system that receives updates about new activities happening in Melbourne. Due to the high number of activities I was receiving the old website system was very hard to maintain so in 2014 I had to unpublish it but I kept the Facebook page live. So, now I have re-launched the new, improved website of Melbourne for kids with a much better user friendly and secure system!
My main focus of this website is to be number one in providing kids friendly businesses and events information to the Melbourne community. All activity providers will now be able to add and manage their own information and keep all their data up to date!
I hope you enjoy the new Melbourne for Kids website!
I have been working in the Internet industry since 1998. With my extensive experience gained in online media throughout my career I was able to create, design and develop this website with my own knowledge, and now successfully run my own business.
