Welcome to the Berkeley Parents Network!
Berkeley Parents Network is a non-profit parent-to-parent forum for the San Francisco Bay Area. 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 find childcare and schools, classes and camps, recommendations for local services, and to seek advice from other parents. Parents may subscribe to BPN for free, and BPN also accepts Community Subscriptions from schools, childcare providers, and other local kid-related services who want to publicize their programs on BPN.
In 2015 we began phasing out the old website parents.berkeley.edu and moving all content to this new site. As of May 2016 the new website contains the Childcare, Marketplace, and Announcements listings. In coming months, we'll be moving all the other BPN newsletters to this new site, along with all the advice and recommendations from the old website.
