“I lived in the Bay Area my whole life. I know this area inside and out… 
or so I thought until I had kids.”

Parents Press is your guide to getting to know this wonderful area all over again. Finding things to do, places to eat, and how to get around — it’s a whole new ballgame with kids in tow. We’re interested in how parents make homes in a space-challenged urban environment, how families create community, and what parents are talking about. Parents Press reflects real Bay Area families and their broad range of parenting experiences.

Since 1980, Parents Press has been informing, empowering and educating local parents. Parents Press magazine publishes monthly. Our special directories, Bay Area Summer Camp Guide, East Bay Preschool Guide, and three different Private School Guides covering the four corners of the Bay, all published annually. As a free resource, you can find us in family-frequented locations like libraries, community centers, grocery stores and health clubs.
