About Us

Supporting Greater Springfield Area Families Since 2004

Don't let the name fool you...there's something for everyone on Springfield Moms!

In November 2004, Kim Leistner Root, a local mom with a 2-year old and a 9-month-old, grew tired of not being able to access local area events and resources for her family in one convenient and current website.  She started an email newsletter with tips and upcoming events and emailed it to 30 of her friends.  A lot happens in twelve years.

Springfield Moms is now an extensive online resource network for the Greater Springfield area for families with kids of ALL ages (from birth to college-bound) and serves as the area's go-to website for What's Happening! Many thanks to the readers, contributors, and amazing staff and volunteers that have been part of this journey.
