NAPLES KIDZ HISTORY

KANDICE PRYOR

Welcome to Naples Kidz! I am thrilled that you found our site! Let me tell you a little about myself. I founded Naples Kidz to help Naples residents and visitors find all that the Naples area has to offer for kids at a “one-stop-shop.” As a mom of 4 and Naples resident, it was difficult to find “every” activity, event, and resource without spending hours researching multiple sites and Facebook pages. Thus, the creation of our NaplesKidz.com was born with an all-in-one calendar of kids’ events and activities, A-Z index of resources, a fun-facts blog, a map of top places to visit for kids, and so much more! Our mission is to help locals and visitors find ALL that the Naples area has for kids to do. We value ALL of the businesses and organizations who offer events and activities for kids in the Naples area. Our goal is to help locals and visitors find information easily and accessible with up-to-date information. Our vision for Naples Kidz is to show the world that the Naples area is a community for kids and families, thriving with exceptional programming for ALL!

TRACY HOUSTON

I am a busy mom of three –two boys and one girl. We shuffle around between three different schools, JROTC, baseball and gymnastics among other activities. I am married to the BEST chef in Naples who happens to be the Executive Chef Partner at The Capital Grille (go there for a fantastic meal–you won’t be disappointed!) We have been married for almost 20 years and counting!

Before I began my photography career, I was a full-time Elementary School Teacher in Rhode Island and in Florida. I started Let Me Be Candid Photography because more and more people began asking me to capture important moments in their lives for them. I absolutely love what I do! I promise to take photos of you and your family as if I was capturing my OWN family.

When I moved here almost 13 years ago, I didn’t know a soul. I had two active little boys and desperately needed mom friends! I was always looking for fun things to do with my family and sometimes would come up empty. I made it a mission when I did find something fun to do, that I would share it with the friends I made. I have always felt like Naples needed a hub of sorts where people can go to find activities easily. Enter Naples Kidz! I was so honored that Kandice asked me to take part in sharing this amazing site! I love making sure that people know how family friendly Naples truly is. It’s not just for the snowbirds anymore!
