Subscribe to BPN

You can subscribe to BPN as a Parent (free) or as Community Member (mostly not free).

Please CONTACT US if you have any questions about which subscription to choose. We usually respond within 24 hours.

Parent Subscribers

Parents and parents-to-be who live in the San Francisco Bay Area (or are moving here) can subscribe for free. Foster parents, grandparents and other family members caring for children in the family may subscribe as parents. You must be actively parenting children (of any age including young adults) so that you can participate in parent-to-parent discussions.  If you don't meet these criteria, sorry but we cannot accept your subscription.  BPN is a non-profit and our resources are limited to supporting local parents. We review every subscription, and we only approve those that meet our membership criteria. See FAQ for Parent Subscribers for more information.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are looking to publicize a class, school, childcare services, or other child-related business, instead choose one of the Community Subscriptions below.
