How angels & urchins began...

We had very young families and had a history in publishing, which kind of led naturally to starting the magazine… We wanted to offer new mums like ourselves (and dads) a lifeline with information about classes for their littles ones and opportunities to meet new parents at the same stage of parenting. We wanted this information to be in the most attractive, aspirational format so that parents could enjoy flicking through the magazine while enjoying some downtime when baby was sleeping. Early team members worked from respective homes – right up until December 2016. 15 years without an office! We were ahead of our time.

We see ourselves at the forefront of curated opinion, reviews and advice on all aspects of living with children in London.
