“We are thrilled to provide this on-the-go resource to busy Seattle-area parents,” said Publisher Ann Bergman, who launched Seattle’s Child in 1979, when the Internet and cellphones were not even a gleam in parents’ eyes.

“Technology has advanced in amazing ways, but parents are still looking to keep their kids happy, healthy and busy — and we’re still providing that information, now in a variety of formats.”

Bergman partnered with CURIO to build the app, with simplicity and utility in mind.

CURIO, which was founded by Chris Chin and Cris Sierra, has focused on connecting people with their city by showcasing those places that make that particular city unique. As a dad of two daughters under 4, and an avid reader of Seattle’s Child, Sierra reached out to Bergman and the rest is history.
