myKidsy.com aims to provide innovative after school, weekend and holiday
for kids. The goal of the site is to save parents’ time on planning, so
they can engage in quality time with their children. But myKidsy is much
more than just an activity finder as it helps parents steer their kids
free time into educational fun. It is about finding the most novel and
educational activities that go way beyond the music class in the
neighbourhood. It is about helping parents of the new digital app
economy find trusted courses that will incentivise and motivate their
kids into hobbies and activities that will contribute to their further
education and growth into becoming citizens of the future society: with
empathy for nature, love for the Arts and sciences and in touch with
their bodies and being active.

programmes, primarily for London based children, but is rapidly
expanding across the UK and internationally. The site provides
time-poor parents with a comprehensive directory of fun and engaging
courses – activities range from art-sessions with famous illustrators,
film-making, learning how to make robots fly, computer coding as well as
