In 2002, Rachael Ross Steidl, founder of ParentClick, Inc. started the website for families in Santa Barbara, California. As a new mother, she was motivated to create a website to support families when she saw parents struggling to find resources for their children. In 2004, after seeing the impact this site had in her community and hearing comments from parents in other cities wanting this same resource, Rachael launched This allowed her to expand from one community to being in multiple communities nationwide as a one-stop, web based research portal for families. was built from hard work, thorough research, a passion to support parents and a love of seeing families taking advantage of incredible programs in their community.

In 2011, the network expanded again with a newly designed site to create better search options, a member community and a social networking presence. This online community and parenting resource has grown from a handful of parents to more than 40,000 parent members with more joining daily. is an online publisher that provides a pulse on the local scene and a city guide for families in communities nationwide. reaches parents of all socio-economic levels and offers a broad range of information that is useful to parents, grandparents, teachers and others working with children, 0-18 years. We are parents and we understand how important it is to be able to find resources when you need them (playgroups, safe playgrounds, family-friendly restaurants, camps). The site content has been developed by a team of parents who care about their community. While we attempt to scour our community for information, we know there is always more.
