Extracurricular Arts, Activities & Academics on Both Shores
As we all know, thanks to the pandemic, school is going to be very different this year. Whether your child is returning to a brick-and-mortar school or you’ve opted for virtual learning, many of the clubs and activities that typically allow them to explore their various interests will not be possible. So, while academics remain top priority, you may want to consider extracurricular activities to provide another level of enrichment. If you’re in the market for artistic endeavors, physical activities beyond the world of team sports, or enhanced academic opportunities or support, we’ve got you covered. Our list of New Orleans and Northshore businesses offer STEM programs, performing arts, gymnastics, cooking, martial arts, and more. Many provide opportunities for in-person and/or online instruction, so be sure to call or visit their websites to find out if they can accommodate your specific needs.

Kids’ Health 2020: Pediatric Providers on Both Shores
As we all continue to navigate our way through this strange new pandemic world, one of the many issues to consider is pediatric preventative health care. Naturally, if your child experiences a health or dental problem, that’s a necessary trip to an office, but what about routine dental cleanings and wellness checkups? Many experts say it’s okay to temporarily delay the routine dental cleanings if you’re uncomfortable with going into an office, but it’s worth giving your dentist a call to discuss the situation, as well as the precautions they’ve put in place. Where wellness visits are concerned, The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) “strongly supports the continued provision of health care for children during the COVID-19 pandemic.” The main concerns involve delays in vaccinations and vital health screenings. It’s worth noting that many providers are offering virtual appointments or will allow you to wait in your car until they are ready to see you, which allows you to avoid or reduce possible waiting room exposure. And *some* pediatricians can be persuaded to administer vaccines and booster shots while you sit in your car, provided you wait the requisite 15 minutes to watch for reactions before leaving the parking lot.

Summer Camps 2020 for NOLA & the Northshore
We’re living in a strange and surreal time, aren’t we? As COVID-19 restrictions begin to ease a bit, everyone is having to decide if and how to do summer camp. Some major facilities and organizations — like Audubon Zoo & NOMA — have opted to cancel altogether, some have implemented special safety rules & protocols, some have gone virtual, and others are still working out the details. Below is a list of summer camps that — as of publication time — are happening on both shores this summer, ranging from low-key arts and academics, to high-octane sports and activities, to classic camps that combine a little of everything. Given how fluid the situation remains, please be sure to check in with each individual organization for changes or cancellations.

Reopen for Business: Family Fun on Both Shores
Little by little, and with an abundance of safety and special protocols in place to protect staff and the public from the COVID-19 virus, South Louisiana’s parks and attractions are cautiously opening back up for business. This is great news for families who have gotten a bit stir crazy under quarantine conditions — but it comes with a social contract to follow the new rules of physical distancing and other mitigating efforts to prevent another massive outbreak of the disease. Here are some places in New Orleans & the Northshore that are (or soon will be) welcoming back kids and families. Please be sure to check each website for any required registration, new hours, and other special rules. Audubon Aquarium of the Americas The Aquarium is welcoming back guests as part of Audubon Nature Institute’s phased reopening. A key part of the plan to safely reopen in compliance with State, City, and CDC guidelines is shifting to timed, advance ticketing. All guests MUST purchase their tickets in advance online for a specific date and entry time; Audubon Members must reserve their complimentary tickets online in advance as well. Follow this link for more reopening information: https://bit.ly/2TRZ03L Reserve your spot here: […]
I find it very reliable, dependable, and even more advantageous than Yellow P! (In fact, I even was able to cancel Yellow P!) Been a customer for almost the whole 20 years! Am always happy to “go the extra mile” for KD and its public events. The magazine, the all-encompassing “infomercial” for Children’s entities, covers a lot of ground. Geography-wise ….and material-wise. So very glad to “be a part!’ – Uncle Wayne- Porta Puppet Players
Use your publication for party ideas, cakes, and summer activities for my son. It’s a valuable and informative resource that really fills a void for children’s activities. I tell everyone I know about it. – Casey L.
Since my pregnancy I used it a lot to find doctors, 4d ultrasound places and after that I have been using it to find children’s clothing stores, photography and much more. Almost every advertisement in the magazine is helpful for me and actually I always use it online because is more convenient. I think it is a very interesting magazine especially the kid’s activities the magazine advertises are awesome. I hope you are always around to keep helping parents like me. – Daniella O.
