About us

Welcome to Web Directory For Parents, a publication and website unlike any other! Our mission is simple, to help parents find more of the best schools, enrichment programs, camps, tutors, educational-related resources, places to go and things to do in the San Fernando Valley and the Greater Los Angeles Area, while spending less time searching the Internet and more time with the family. We get it, we are parents too! Anything that can save you a little time, can be a BIG help.

History of Web Directory For Parents

Web Directory For Parents, originally called The Education & Enrichment Guide, began as a spreadsheet created by the Founder & CEO, Rose Restivo, a first-time mom in search of the best preschool for her son. It's hard to imagine today, but back in 2001 most schools and businesses didn't have online presence. Research was done at the library, the local bookstore, friend referrals, and driving around the neighborhood! Rose felt that she could not make an informed decision until she uncovered all the different preschool options in her area. That spreadsheet ultimately evolved into the first printed edition of The Education & Enrichment Guide, covering the San Fernando Valley. Quickly the publication grew, expanded to include the Greater Los Angeles Area, launched a searchable website, and in 2012, the name was changed to Web Directory For Parents.

At Web Directory For Parents, we love the idea of helping other parents, and we don't take that honor lightly. That's why we are committed to keeping our information current and non-biased. We guess you could say that information gathering and sharing is an obsession for us. We are proud to offer as many categories as we do. Whether you are looking for a school today, a gymnastics class tomorrow, or you just need the phone number to your local library, Web Directory For Parents is designed to be uniquely yours to meet the individual needs of your family.
