YourKidsEd – educate, enrich and inspire your children
Welcome! If you're a parent looking for inspirational ideas for educating and enriching your children, you have come to the right place!
Sophia Dimitropoulos is the founder and director of YourKidsEd. As a mother with three school-age children, Sophia noticed she was becoming frustrated with the time it often took to trawl through the internet to find educational resources for the kids. There were times when she needed to find homework help resources, school information, or educational activities. Online searches did not always provide relevant and comprehensive results.

Sophia realised she had found a gap in the availability of education information on the internet. Using her marketing background, undertaking countless hours of ongoing research, and mustering loads of enthusiasm and stamina, she embarked on the YourKidsEd journey.
YourKidsEd was established in August 2008, and is now visited by over 10,000 Australian parents every month. Dozens of experts now contribute articles, and educational and parenting information. There are over 1000 pages of articles, news and links. In its first year, YourKidsEd was shortlisted in the Category of 'Best New Website' in the NetGuide Web Awards. Recently, YourKidsEd has formed a collaborative partnership with the Australian Parents Council, to bring you even better content.
It is Sophia's hope that the fantastic sites, tips, products and activities uncovered within these pages will help you and your family as much as they have helped hers, along their exciting education journey.
Hi there - I just wanted to send in my thanks for the great work you do on this site rounding up interesting resources. My kids are particularly inspired by the competitions, and have got involved in all sorts of events I found here this year, ranging from poetry to art to science, which has been just wonderful.

Good Morning, I hope you don't mind, but I'm a visitor and fan of your page: the-best-cyber-safety-resources-for-your-family. I found it again when I was browsing for some information on online safety. I teach fourth grade computer tech and we have been using your resources since the beginning of the school year. It's been great! If it's OK, I may even include it in my handbook of online classroom resources for new tech teachers to use! R. Duff
