Kids guide back as a small book
Copies of the new KB Kids Stuff Directory are now available, following the launch of the updated resource on Monday.
Parenting Connection WA funded the project with support from the State Government, allowing Kalgoorlie-Boulder families to access the latest information about health care, education and community services in the city.
Directory content producer Sarah Hinton applied to Anglicare WA for a grant to assist in updating the 2012 edition of the booklet and said much of the information in the resource had not been easily accessible online.
“It was actually really difficult to get that information and not all the information I found online was correct or up to date,” she said.
Surveys conducted by Parenting Connection WA also revealed that many parents preferred having a hard copy of the directory rather than having to access the information through a mobile app.
“They used to have it as an app but people have all come back saying they want a hard copy,” Ms Hinton said.
“They want it to fit in the nappy bag or in the pram or in the car or even just to have in a drawer at home because they just prefer having that hard copy to refer to.
Printed copies of the KB Kids Stuff Directory are available from the Parenting Connection WA and Anglicare WA offices at Lotteries House on Wilson Street.
The resource is also available as a download from the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder website.
