What is The Exploring Family?

The Early Days:

Kate started Little Miss Kate & Co 2011 as an outlet to write and share experiences of motherhood and opinions on products/services that help make parenting easier.  What started as a place to provide parents with helpful information to make parenting choices simpler and straight forward became that and so much more. 

Growing and Growing

By 2018 Little Miss Kate & Co had grown from a small personal blog to a trusted Canadian parenting website.  Kate & Erin met online through a local mom Facebook group and merged forces to create Kate & Company.  Our focus shifted to grow our coverage of local greater Toronto area content and events.

Now and What is to Come

2021 marks the 10th anniversary of Kate starting her website, and also a rebranding.  Kate & Company became The Exploring Family to fit with our mission to be the go-to resource for families in Peel and Halton Region Focused on making family fun and accessible for busy parents. As a trusted resource to Greater Toronto Area Families they turn to us for information on everything from fun summer camps,  to where to get the best ice cream.  We connect with families via our website, Facebook page, instagram, YouTube Channel, and our over 7,000 member Facebook Group Peel Parents Resource.
