Founder – Chontelle Bonfiglio

Chontelle is an Aussie mum of 2 kids based in Melbourne. She grew up in the Melbourne suburbs and moved abroad after university to travel.

After living and working overseas in the UK, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, and Russia, she met and married her Italian husband and settled in Italy where she was based for more than a decade before moving with her family back to Melbourne. She and her husband frequently travel to and from Europe with their kids to show them new places and love to share their travels on this site.

Chontelle and her husband are raising their kids bilingually, they are fluent in English and Italian, and have learned some Spanish too. In 2016 while living in Italy, Chontelle founded Bilingual Kidspot, a popular website providing resources for language teachers and parents raising bilingual kids.

Mum’s Little Explorers was founded when the family moved back to Melbourne and started rediscovering it’s wonders with their kids.

Articles & Reviews

Most of the content found on this website is written Chontelle Bonfiglio. As the site has grown over the years, you may have notice some guest contributors, their name will be referenced in the article.

The images on this site are also taken either by Chontelle or contributors to the site. Some images are provided by PR for certain events.

The content on this site is true at the time of posting. It is frequently updated as often as possible, but please double check the company website of any place or activity, especially important details such as hours and costs as they may change over time.

Many events, activities, restaurants etc on this site, are visited at our own expense. However, Mums Little Exploreres are often invited to others with some or all expenses paid. This may be entry to a certain event, or tickets for an activity, a meal at a restaurant, or a complimentary hotel stay. We are also sometimes sent fun products to try out.

Having costs covered does not automatically mean there is an expectation that a review will be published. If we do decide to write about it,  the reviews and all opinions are always that of the writer. We will only share the experience if we enjoyed it and recommend it to others.
