Welcome to our 10th anniversary edition of the Malta Baby & Kids Directory.  It is astonishing to think that the book and our website www.maltababyandkids.com has reached double figures as has my son Oliver who was the ultimate inspiration for this publication and who also turns 10 this year.

The book has grown alongside my son and continues to assist me in his upbringing together with my 4 year old daughter. I recall when pregnant with Oliver - my first child - the fears and anticipation of what lay ahead and whether I would be adequately equipped for parenting my child.  This book has allowed me to discover another wondrous world and assisted me to make the right choices for my children whether it be pregnancy and birth, health, education, activities, organising kids parties and so much more.  We hope that will be the case for our readers too.

Our website www.maltababyandkids.com is a godsend for busy parents who haven’t got the time to scour the media for what’s happening for kids in Malta.  We do that in house for you and post events daily on the site.  Over the years there has been a notable increase in activities and events for families which helps to make outings more varied.

This book is a team effort between Crysta Darmanin, Denise Briffa and myself who between us have 7 children ranging from 4 to 30 years old! We have a wealth of experience that we are happy to share with parents and at the same time we are always open to discover more.

My aim would be for parents to consider this essential reference book and portal as your resourceful friend who helps you along the way- and will give our children lasting happy memories of their childhood!

This year the front cover painting competition title was ‘Saving Malta’s Unique Environment’ and our judge- well known artist Kenneth Zammit Tabona, had a truly difficult task to choose over from 100 entries.  The shortlisted 12 entries are included within the book.

The  Malta Baby & Kids Directory Mums and Dads Award was held for the sixth time this year and we had some truly heartfelt stories sent to us all well deserving of the prizes.  The decision was made through a panel of judges, assisted by our fans input through our Facebook Page and our winners were chosen and presented with the prizes of a five-star weekend break plus a bundle of goodies at our launch party held in June. 

Please keep in touch with us through the website or social media on Facebook at maltababyandkids.com.  We’d love to hear from you.

Wishing you fun times with your children!

This year is a very special year for Malta Baby & Kids Directory- as we take a stroll down memory lane over the past ten years. The atmosphere in the office is buzzing since the launch of our eagerly anticipated tenth anniversary edition. The book launch party, held at Malta National Aquarium on Tuesday the 28th of June, was very well attended by the nominees of our Best Mum & Best Dad Award winners, the winners themselves together with their immediate family, the shortlisted dozen artists, together with the winner of our Front Cover Painting Competition and the local press. 



The team at Malta Baby & Kids Directory were extremely pleased to be see the look of joy on the face of our reigning Best Dad Martin Grech as he was presented with a lovely bundle of goodies by Mrs. Michelle Muscat during the launch event! Unfortunately our Best Mum Lorinda Mamo was unable to attend as her son was taken unexpectedly ill- we wish him a speedy recovery! Fleur Fenech Xuereb, who had nominated Lorinda for this prestigious award, stepped in to collect the prizes in her stead. 



The youngest ever winning artist, Dante Pace, was as pleased as punch with his great prizes of a Faber-Castell voucher & a board game from Spells 'Guess The Fake' presented by this year's judge Kenneth Zammit Tabona. Our first runner-up, Taya Pace was excited about her prize of a Faber-Castell voucher coupled with a yummy Lulu's rainbow cake!
