Welcome to our 12th edition of the Malta Baby & Kids Directory which together with our website www.maltababyandkids.com, I am delighted to say, remain the essential references for parents and child carers living in and visiting Malta, catering for children from birth to 14 years old.

This book is a team effort between Crysta Darmanin, Denise Briffa and myself who between us have 7 children ranging from 5 years old to 31 years old! No grandchildren just yet however…. Together with our members of over 7000 parents online we have a wealth of experience that we are happy to share with parents while always in search of more.

Every year the Baby & Kids team scour the media and are on the lookout for new and exciting developments that cater for children locally. I am delighted to see more and more innovative and exciting projects being established on the islands, in the main by parents themselves who have been clever and seen a niche market for a product, facility or service which ultimately makes parents lives easier and more interesting.

Our website www.maltababyandkids.com continues to be the number one portal for parents with new events added daily that might be of interest to parents as well as offering essential references and articles on bringing up your children. I would encourage any new parents to Malta and also living here to sign up for our monthly newsletter full of news and events to help you plan quality time with your children.

My aim would be for parents to consider this essential reference book and portal as your best friend who helps you along the way to simplify and make parenting less of a chore and more of a fun experience which ultimately will give our children lasting happy memories of their childhood!

This year the front cover children’s photography competition title was “My Pet” in collaboration with The Foto Grafer of Fgura. The response was wonderful with over 80 photographs entered into the competition. As always we include some of the runners up within the book.

Finally, I would be delighted if parents keep in touch with us and join our ever increasing community of parents and child carers by subscribing to our free monthly newsletter packed with latest news and info and events happening in thupcoming months. We also have exciting competitions each month where you and your kids can win great prizes.

Keep in touch with us via our website or social media on Facebook at maltababyandkids.com and join our maltababyandkids.com chat group. We look forward to hearing from you.Wishing you fun times with your children!

What a Party!!

Last year's book launch party held on Tuesday 27th June at the Malta National Aquarium. Happy winners of the front cover painting competition were presented with their prize.



Welcome to 11
th 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!
