About Us

Mornington Peninsula Kids was born from a local mum who found it difficult to source local information that helped make family life fun.

While planning began in 2007, it wasn’t until 2011 that MPK engaged a web designer to pull together the ideas and visions and in June 2012  Mornington Peninsula Kids was launched to the world!  It was overwhelming how quickly the concept was embraced by businesses and the community alike.  Both the Mornington Peninsula Kids website and Facebook page have become a regular source of localised and specific information for families residing and visiting the Peninsula.

In early 2014 MPK joined forces with Mornington Peninsula News Group and expanded the team to allow continual improvements to the services provided and to offer more and more exciting opportunities to the Mornington Peninsula Community in the future.

From Philadelphia in the U.S., I moved to the gorgeous Mornington Peninsula in 2006 after marrying my dreamy Aussie.  We started producing local newspapers in 2007 and producing children in 2009.  After being a mostly stay-at-home mom until 2014 I have now returned to work part time giving all of my attention to Mornington Peninsula Kids.  Before getting on board with the team, I always used MPK as my ‘go to’ resource for anything and everything kid-wise on the peninsula.  I couldn’t be happier to be a part of its growth and future and I feel very fortunate to be able to raise my children on this little slice of paradise.

I have been living on the Mornington Peninsula for since 2001 and must say I think it is the best place to live! I have only been with Mornington Peninsula Kids for a few months.
