As a parent have you been to a restaurant or place which you thought would be kid friendly, but that turned out not to be?

  • Kid and family friendly means different things to different people. The KidScore™ system aims to help busy parents determine how generally kid friendly restaurants, activities, and other businesses are.
  • We’ve spoken to hundreds of parents to develop a method with which to judge a place’s kid friendliness using a variety of criteria.
  • Although we won’t give away our all our secrets, we will say that user reviews, feedback, and information from owners all play a role in determining a KidScore™rating.

Here’s a brief description of score values:

90-100 Kid Heaven

Service, products, and place speak to kids.   Families seek it out and recommend it for amenities, service, menu, products, play area, toys, etc…  Primarily in business to serve families and kids

65- 89 Kid Friendly

Includes requirements of lower scores.  A large percent of patrons are families.  The staff and other patrons are friendly and comfortable with children. Good for infants, toddlers, children, and tweens.  This place is practical and fun.

50-64 Kid Accommodating

Products, Ambiance, and service can be considered kid friendly.  Have changing tables, kids’ menu, and high chairs.  Easy Parking, Quick Service, Hours, décor, and Pricing are also factors.

26-49 Kids Allowed

Adult targeted but can accommodate children.  Although it might have a few basics, it lacks kid specific items like high chairs, changing tables, menus, etc…

0-25 Kids Not Welcome

Not recommended for kids, some places might allow children over age 12, or we have insufficient data.

KidScore Categories:

Restaurants and eateries (and relevant sub-categories of other food and dining places), doctors, dentists, activities & attractions (museums, parks,  amusement parks, and much more), and shopping (retail and grocery)  We measure different attributes for different categories, so a kid friendly dentist practice won’t get penalized for not having a high chair or kids menu.  We are planning on adding new categories in the near future.  We want to hear from you, send suggestions and ideas to

KidScore™ is a venture of the Judy’s Book team and is owned and operated by Local Concepts Inc.
