Welcome to 11th edition of The Malta Baby & Kids Directory 2017/ 2018.

In this slimmer edition we have chosen to highlight certain aspects of a child’s upbringing that we think parents will find more useful while retaining the additional categories for reference on our website www.maltababyandkids.com.

This book is a team effort between Crysta Darmanin, Denise Briffa and Lisa Grech who, with 7 children between them, have a great deal of experience that they are happy to share with parents.   The directory aims to make every parents’ life easier so that they can have more fun and quality time with their children.

We are happy to say The Malta Baby & Kids Directory together with its official website maltababyandkids.com it is now the leading information portal for parents with all the listings in the directory being available online including sections on Pregnancy and Birth, Health, Childcare, Schools, Days out, Activities, Sports activities, Parties, Shopping, Travel and General Advice. 

We also keep in touch with parents through our monthly newsletters and keep them  informed of family friendly events as well as giving them the opportunity to participate in competitions with great prizes. 

The team would like to thank all those who have given us support and shown faith in our publication and website www.maltababyandkids.com through advertising.  Thanks to your support we are able to distribute a free copy of the directory to every pregnant mother through Mater Dei Hospital and in Gozo General Hospital 

During the launch party we have also presented prizes to the winners of the Malta Baby & Kids Directory front cover painting competition as well as launching our 11th edition of The Malta Baby & Kids Directory.  The theme of the competition this year was a very current topic – Valletta,  European Capital of Culture.

The Malta Baby & Kids Directory front cover painting competition for children between 4 and 14 years this year was this year kindly sponsored by Stabilo represented in Malta by Golden Gate. This year the theme was ‘Valletta – European Capital of Culture’. We received over 70 entries.  Of the many beautiful paintings, the best 12 are displayed here today, as chosen by prominent Maltese artist Caroline Said Lawrence who was given the difficult task to choose the winner.

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! 

The artists who submitted the shortlisted dozen paintings to this years Malta Baby & Kids Directory Front Cover Painting competition- themed 'Saving Malta's Unique Environment', were delighted to receive their consolation prizes of a bag of Candylicious sweets, together with a comprehensive art pack generously supplied by Faber-Castell and complimentary entrance tickets to Playmobil Malta. 

Malta National Aquarium provided the animation which kept the considerable amount of kids present entertained throughout- apart from also supplying those present with complimetary kids entrance tickets! 




Congratulations Lorinda Mamo- Malta Baby & Kids Directory's Best Mum 2015!

Well done Martin Grech, Malta Baby & Kids Directory's reigning Best Dad!
