About Kid’s Directory
We love making life easier for parents and businsses.
Mom’s favorite resource, since 1991
Kid’s Directory of Central Arkansas was founded in 1991 by Larry Garner. Jennifer Robins, the current owner, joined the team shortly after in 1993 and became the sole owner of the company in 2000. And for 20 years, Jennifer has been working to bring families together and support the local businesses of Central Arkansas.
“There aren’t many jobs out there that allow you to offer true value on all sides. I wake up every morning excited about what I do and feeling good about the people we’re helping,” says Jennifer.
Since 1993, Jennifer has helped hand deliver the lovingly crafted print editions of the Kid’s Directory around the city. “People always stop and chat with me when they see what I’m dropping off,” says Jennifer. “It’s one of my favorite parts of my job – I get to see the direct impact we have as a publication.”
After almost three decades, Kid’s Directory of Central Arkansas remains a massive voice among Little Rock moms and is the most valuable form of advertising available for many local small businesses.
