Pediatric Dentist- Babies to Teens! Metairie and Slidell Our office, as well as the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, recommends that your child visit the dentist by his/her 1st birthday. You can make the first visit to the dentist enjoyable and positive. Your child should be informed of the visit and told that the dentist and their staff will explain all procedures and answer any questions. The less “to-do” concerning the visit, the better. It is best if you refrain from using words around your child that might cause unnecessary fear, such as “needle”, “shot”, “pull”, “drill” or “hurt”. The office makes a practice of using words that convey the same message, but are pleasant and non-frightening to the child. We invite you to stay with your child during the initial examination. During future appointments, we suggest you allow your child to accompany our staff through the dental experience. We can usually establish a closer rapport with your child when you are not present. Our purpose is to gain your child’s confidence and overcome apprehension. However, if you choose, you may come with your child to the treatment room. For the safety and privacy of all patients, other children who […]

Octave School of Music Our Philosophy We know how lessons are, and we want to change them. Years in this industry has taught me that how lessons are taught are great for teachers but not for students. Teachers and schools are quick to fit a student in a prescribed curriculum or “cookie cutter.” This is a big problem. Students are all different. From likes and dislikes, paper and plastic, Saints or some other football team, people just aren’t the same. The way they are taught shouldn’t be either. We believe that students have the right to learn their own way. We bring a fully integrated experience to your music lessons. From theory to performing, composing to proper technique. Mention the website for your first lesson free! Music theory is quite literally the language of music. Like learning Spanish when you travel to Mexico it is necessary to understand the signs and go where you want to be. Our music theory classes start where you are. Whether you’ve been playing for years and looking to dig deeper, or if you have no idea what you looking at. Such as people who call the sharps in music hashtags and so on. […]

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!

Swim for Your Life
When you live in South Louisiana, summer weather typically comes early and stays late, and most of us live somewhere near either man-made or natural bodies of water. Combine the two, and water safety is a must! According to the Red Cross, more than half of all Americans cannot perform these potentially life-saving tasks: tread water or float for a minute jump into deep water and come up for air spin around in the water and find a way out get out of a pool without a ladder swim one pool length without stopping As a result, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), from 2005-2014, there were an average of 3,536 fatal unintentional, non-boating-related drownings annually in the United States, and about one in five were children 14 and younger. The good news is, it’s never too late for adults to learn to swim, and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recently updated its drowning-prevention guidelines to say that kids can now start swimming lessons at one year old.

Say YES to Arts Education!
Many of us who love the arts don’t really need to be convinced that arts education is important to our children’s development and enrichment. But for those who see it as a non-essential luxury, there are some compelling, practical purposes to explore, as well. According to Americans for the Arts, the nation’s leading nonprofit organization for advancing the arts and arts education… A student involved in the arts is four times more likely to be recognized for academic achievement. Students with low socioeconomic status are five times more likely to stay in school if they participate in the arts. Students who take four years of arts and music classes average almost 100 points higher on their SAT scores than students who take only one-half year or less. Low-income students who are highly engaged in the arts are twice as likely to graduate college as their peers with no arts education. 72% of business leaders say that creativity is the number one skill they are seeking when hiring. Two-thirds of public school teachers believe that the arts are getting crowded out of the school day. Whether your child is ready to make a serious commitment, or if he/she is just interested […]

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

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.
