Washington Parent has been serving parents in the Washington Metropolitan Area since 1983, providing family enrichment through education and support . . . in print, online, and at selected events throughout the year.
We have been recognized in the community as the most trusted parenting resource in Maryland, DC and Northern Virginia. Each month we feature articles written by professionals in the fields of child development, education, arts, special needs and more. Our calendar, “Along the Potomac,” lists hundreds of events and activities for children and parents. The “Parents Bulletin Board” includes resources and workshops for moms and dads.
Every issue of Washington Parent has special themes. We publish the following guides annually: Education (January and October), Sleepaway Camps (January), Camps (February through May), Explorations (May), Parties & Family Fun (June), Child Care (July), Stay & Play Summer Fun (July and August), Enrichment Activities (August), School Open Houses (September), Arts (November), Children's Wellness (December) and Parent & Child Classes (December).
