Welcome to the Berkeley Parents Network!
Berkeley Parents Network (BPN) is a nonprofit parent-to-parent network for the San Francisco Bay Area. BPN's mission is to help local parents support each other by providing a moderated online forum. Founded in 1993 as a mailing list for student parents at UC Berkeley, BPN has grown to include more than 30,000 subscribers from all over the Bay Area who use BPN to get advice from other parents and exchange recommendations for childcare, schools, classes, camps, and many other local services. Parents subscribe to BPN for free. BPN also accepts paid Community Subscriptions from schools, camps, childcare providers, and other local kid-related services that want to publicize their programs on BPN.
