I’m so excited to welcome you to PeoriaParent.com! What is PeoriaParent.com? It is the ultimate parent’s resource for Peoria, Tazewell, and Woodford counties. This one-stop guide is for parents-to-be all the way to parents of teens. Check out our directories for anything relating to kids in the Peoria area, including: playgroups, safety (OffenderWatch), family fun attractions, kid’s enrichment classes & team sports, kid’s retail, and so much more! Participate in the blogs and forums to raise awareness on issues pertaining to tri-county kids, provide insight, or share laughs with area parents.

I’ve heard many parents say there’s nothing to do in Peoria. Not true! Check out our calendar listing seasonal family events, story times, spectator sports, family-friendly shows, children enrichment events, and a lot more! Also, community members may advertise their fundraisers, classifieds, garage sales, and volunteering opportunities on the Bulletin Board. PeoriaParent.com is an awesome tool.

So how did this website get started? As a new parent (and fairly new resident of the tri-county area), everything relating to kids in the Peoria area is scattered info or word-of-mouth. I wished there was a centralized parent’s resource, and here we are today! Also, I wanted to give exposure to non-profit groups as well as businesses. There was not much advertising for parenting support groups until now. I must thank my technical director for helping me create this site!

The website is in its infancy, and will continue to develop and grow. Let us know if there’s any additional parenting info for the tri-counties. Please tell other parents, grandparents, teachers, daycares about PeoriaParent.com. This website is an invaluable resource for Peoria parents.

Hi! I just wanted to let you know that when I was registering and selecting my child's birth year, the latest year that is an option is 2007. I'm sure there's moms joining the group that have babies born in 2008 or 2009. Just wanted to let you know!
