Making Meaningful Music Music has saved me in many ways and that’s why I’m passionate about helping others find the comfort in song as well. When performing, I believe in customizing the music for each experience….while there are certainly traditional songs for specific events, I like to be sure the song choices reflect the personality of the people we’re celebrating! Check out these videos for some great examples. When teaching, I focus more on keeping it light and fun than on making sure everything is played or sung perfectly. If you (or your child) want to become the next concert pianist I can recommend another teacher….if you’d like to learn about music and laugh along the way, I think we’ll be a good match!

BLUE STAR PEST CONTROL was founded by Mr. John Brown in April of 1984, from that time to 1996, Blue Star Pest Control secured a modest yet solid foothold in the pest control industry in St. Tammany parish. Blue Star Pest Control started doing business in Orleans and Jefferson parishes in the later years. In 1996, in light of the industries struggle with ineffective termite chemicals and the increase in lawsuits within our industry, Mr. Brown decided to sell his accounts to a major pest control company, believing it was the right thing to do for his loyal customers to stay protected. Many Blue Star customers were very upset that their accounts had been sold to another company. It was that fact and the many requests from customers that led Mr. Brown to re-open Blue Star Pest Control in 2001. Mr. Brown re-started the operation with no customer base, and began to re-build Blue Star Pest Control from scratch. Even to this day, many of our previous customers are grateful that we re-opened and are returning to have us protect their homes. In 2002, Mr. Brown had a heart attack, which slowed him down tremendously. He attempted to continue building […]

Gifts of Gratitude for Moms & Teachers
The month of May signals the impending end of springtime, as well as the school year. They can be bittersweet or exciting milestones, depending on your perspective, but they also bring to mind two very important groups of people that deserve a little tribute this time of year: moms (Mother’s Day is May 13) and teachers! Both hardworking groups put in a lot of long hours — not to mention their hearts and souls — to ensure the development and well-being of children. A kind word of thanks and a token of appreciation can go a long way towards letting them know how much they’re appreciated. Here’s a handy list of establishments on both shores that offer either the perfect gift, or the perfect gift card!

Customer & Reader Testimonies
We have been doing business with Kids & Family Directory, hard to believe, for over 17 years, and always have been happy with business they provide. Their team has been instrumental in helping us create eye-catching ads and always responsive in a timely manner. They provide us with any advice we might need in different periods of time and care about our business with a professional approach. We value their expertise and highly recommend them to anyone– Larissa-Ivanov’s Gymnastics Academy
“Kids & Family New Orleans is a wonderful asset to the New Orleans area community –- a great digest for parents. As owners of a new kids’ entertainment facility, BooKoo Bounce, we have been very pleased with the results advertising in it has provided to us. Advertising with Kids’ and Family New Orleans made it possible for us to book birthday parties well in advance of even opening our doors to the public, and it continues to drive a significant portion of our advertising response today.”– Gia Sausse, BooKoo Bounce
“I have been using this as my only means of advertising for years! I LOVE the beginning of each month because my phone does not stop ringing. I have many, many loyal customers that found me through Kids & Family. I also have been able to help others start their own businesses and become very successful which is a goal each year for me personally. My most successful team members found me through my ad in Kids & Family. We are like one big family all working together to help each other have successful home based businesses. We are all very thankful for this resource that has brought us together!!!”– Jill, Lularoe
“I know from personally answering the phones that at least 1 in 3 calls says they saw us in the Kids & Family magazine. We now use various methods of advertising, but next to word of mouth, Kids & Family (New Orleans & Northshore) produces the highest enrollment results. Thanks for your wonderful magazine!”– Wanda Cullen, Director Louisiana Academy of Performing Arts
Any clients I gain other than students in my classes, almost entirely comes from Kids & Family! You really get those books out there. Thank you so much for everything through the years. Here is to many more. – Connie- Tumblebus
Got good response from Summer camps due to your publication! Thanks!– Barry-Reptile Krewe
Very exciting news about the app! I can’t wait to check it out. Thank you for all the wonderful work you do!– Emily-Bibbidy Bobbidy Bash
It has been my joy and pleasure to work with Kids and Family and especially Toni throughout the years. From the time it was the “Kids Directory” to now Toni has been nothing but patient, giving, understanding and supportive of my needs as both a human being and a business owner. The directory itself has always returned dividends to us in the form of business. And then there is the lagniappe of extra opportunities that Toni provides during the year that extend our reach into the community. All in all, a value that can’t be beat! Kaye Harris, Owner, Pony Tales
Since my very first ad I have been satisfied with my ad in Kids & Family New Orleans! I still have people that pick up the magazine and call to book an appointment while sitting in the doctor’s office. People come to my shop just to get their copies too. Mrs. Toni has always been very helpful and supportive. I am a customer for life! – Katy Medina, Owner: Children’s Hair Palace
I have been a customer of Kids & Family New Orleans ever since I owned Kid to Kid. I find it to be the most effective, reliable, and affordable form of advertising. The service and support is excellent. I would recommend Kids & Family. Ann Dyer, Kid to Kid Owner
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
I use it for kid-friendly services as well as for ideas for “field trips” with my children. I also find ideas for birthday parties and other activities for my children – and for myself. Jennifer J.
This publication is so very helpful for me and my little one! Weekends are the only time we have to spend together and this manual is our savior. It’s free to pick up at the doctor’s office or shops on Magazine St. We also save on coupons and find out about all the little secret spots and places that others don’t have a clue about! We were also featured in an issue through Healthy Start New Orleans! Amazing Issues and great help. This book is perfect. Like a little kids manual! Ashley L.
I always look through your magazine for activities for my daughter and for what to do on the weekend and on our off days. The most recent being Boo Koo Bounce in Elmwood – boy did we have a blast.
I love your magazine and all of the places it informs me of that my daughter and I can take part in. Tia L.
I can’t describe how helpful New Orleans Kids & Family has been. I have a son born in October which means it is usually cold, so I tried to find an indoor place (besides my home) that I could have his 2nd birthday party. I found Gymrompers! The party was a hit and everyone loved it! If it was not for your publication I would have never found that place. Your publication gives me great ideas every year. I have 3 children so I am planning often. Thanks! Onikah C.
Use your publication for party ideas, cakes, and summer activities for my son. It’s avaluable 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.
The book helps me plan for birthday parties and fieldtrips for my school and myself. I love this book!!!!!!!!! Thanks a lot. Kristie W.
