Welcome to the Berkeley Parents Network!
Berkeley Parents Network (BPN) is an online nonprofit network for parents who live in the San Francisco Bay Area. BPN was founded in 1993 as a mailing list for student parents at UC Berkeley and has grown by word of mouth to include more than 30,000 subscribers from all over the Bay Area. Parents use BPN to get advice from other parents, and exchange recommendations for childcare, schools, classes, camps, and other local services. It is free for local parents to subscribe. BPN also accepts paid Community Subscriptions from schools, camps, childcare providers, and other kid-related services that want to publicize their programs on BPN.
