famiizuu focuses on bringing families together for support and fun both in person and online. Your famiizuu membership gives you unlimited access to all of the programs we offer for children ages 0-8 years old. There are over 30+ programs monthly that focus on developmental areas such as art & sensory, literacy & language, fitness, music, nutrition and science & discovery. Our programs are a combination of structured educational activites and social / free play time in order for relationships to form.
Members also have access to exclusive discounts with our preferred family friendly businesses. Be sure to check out the Discount Tab for a listing of ALL of the participating companies.
Our community message board allows for intimate conversations to take place on a non judgemental, supportive forum. Conversations help to give insightful, meaningful information and tips that can be useful. At times we have expert speakers available to answer questions from the comfort of your own home!
Our famiizuu goal is to help facilitate and build genuine lifelong connections with other families, businesses and resources in the community. We look forward to getting to know YOU!
Meet the Team:
Sam Kassam-Macfie - Owner & Founder of famiizuu
I have my degree in psychology and worked with Parks & Recreation running programs and camps for 11 years. I love to plan & organize events and adore being around little ones. I am active in the community - participating in several networking groups, charity initiatives and am on the parent council at my sons school. I was nominated for Entrepreneur of the Year in 2012 & 2013 and won the award in 2014 from the Milton Chamber of Commerce. I love being a part of the Milton Community and enjoy introducing our members to all that Milton has to offer.
Angela Hickman - Marketing, Advertising & Blogger
I am a full time working mom of a 7 year old girl and 3 year old boy. I have lived in Milton for 8 years but never really knew what it had to offer until I met Sam 3 years ago. Through her programming my kids and I have made some long lasting friendships and have grown a true appreciation for the local businesses Milton has to offer. I am so happy to be able to help introduce family friendly businesses to our members, fans and followers. We offer customized advertising packages both online and in person. Get in touch with me and let's discuss how we can get your business noticed!
Pauline Haig - Program Co-Ordinator
I lead many of the programs offered by famiizuu: Worker Bees, Busy Beavers, Little Book Worms, just to name a few. I have been leading programs with famiizuu for over a year. I am a long-time crafter and book-lover who loves to share these things with children. I have BA's in Psychology and Labour Studies. After becoming a mother, I decided to stay at home with my daughter and enjoy my new calling. While my daughter is growing up much faster than I'd like, through Famiizuu, I am able to continue to enjoy the little ones.
Melissa Foreman - Program Co-Ordinator
My name is Melissa Foreman and I have 3 children (Ben 12, Danielle 8 and Jeffrey 3) I am an Early Childhood Educator with a B.A. in Sociology who loves to be hands on and is never afraid to get too dirty. In my downtime I love swimming, reading and travelling. I have run a before and after school program and a part time daycare for the school months since my children were born. I love being home with them, watching them grown and develop and being able to take them to Famiizuu programs as well as other programs in the community. I am also the co-chair of my kids parent council and love to help out around the school. I am looking forward to diving into teaching some of the Famiizuu programs and getting to know you and your children.
