About the Top 5 Classes and Enrichment Programs in the 2022 Best of Parents Press

Parents Press Best of the Bay was born with the idea to give readers throughout the Bay Area a chance to voice their opinions on their personal ‘Family Favorite’ choices for Classes and Enrichment Programs and all kinds of everyday categories. The program has evolved over the years, and hopefully, with a lot of input from our readers, we’ve been able to make it better and better.

The voting for Best of Parents Press Classes and Enrichment Programs is conducted in a two-round process. The first round occurs in the month of February with open write-in nominations for reader’s favorite Classes and Enrichment Programs taking place. Write-in nominations continue to be open until the middle of April.

As the nomination period for Classes and Enrichment Programs in the first round comes to a close in mid April, shortly after, the second round opens with the top nominee Classes and Enrichment Programs being selectable in this final round of voting during the month of April and May. Write-in nominations are no longer available, and voters are open to select their favorite Classes and Enrichment Programs from among those that are listed.

The final winners are posted in July

We hope you enjoy! And we hope you cast your vote next year!
