About Our Site
Cleveland East Side Moms is managed and run by local moms who live right here in Shaker Heights! We’re proud to be a member of the Local Moms Network, which was founded with the very simple goal of giving moms the gift of time. We want to be the number one resource for all parents on Cleveland’s East Side by saving you time and energy. The site features a calendar of events, a curated resource guide, and carefully sourced discounts, all developed especially for parents located in Cleveland’s East Side suburbs. Our focus is on the near-East suburbs (Cleveland Heights, University Heights, Beachwood, and Shaker Heights), but we also loosely cover Lyndhurst, Chagrin Falls, Solon, and Orange as time permits. Looking for a doctor or a dentist? Our resources have you covered. Want something fun to do this weekend, with or without your children? Our calendar is all over that! Know of something we missed? Tell us about it! We are always open to suggestions for improvement.
