Inspired by her local community, founder Laura Stotland launched South Bay Mommies and Daddies as a resource for local parents to provide information and tips to raising their family in the South Bay.

After having her first child, Laura and a small group of local South Bay moms launched a private Facebook group for local moms to ask questions and share ideas about being first time moms and raising little ones. It’s a tough job, but the group offered support and advice that helped on many sleepless nights! The once small private Facebook group turned into a community, and before you knew it, there were over 10,000 active local moms in the group asking questions, providing support, and sharing ideas!

Since this group was so successful, a second group was launched called “What’s Happening in the South Bay,” a group dedicated to sharing information about local events in the area. Today, that group has over 5,000 active members.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, I've lived in many diverse communities within our city. As a second-career teacher, I’ve also had the privilege of gathering a wealth of experience regarding life and culture that I can now use to enrich my students. Since 2017, I’ve been a preferred substitute teacher for El Segundo Unified School District (elementary), an honor for which I am grateful. As a newly credentialed teacher, experienced tutor, and distance educator, I’m excited by the opportunity to help support children and their respective families through this pivotal moment that is greatly impacting education.
