If you live anywhere near Seattle, you most likely have seen and read the wonderful publication ParentMap. We are so pleased to support this essential community offering of great information, insight and inspiration. We have been particularly pleased to be an ongoing sponsor of ParentMap’s Pathways Lecture Series, a valuable community asset for any and all of us who want to grow in our skills and our capacity for love in all of our relationships. Please read on and discover the many gifts that ParentMap has to offer.
ParentMap prides itself on reaching families in the community with intelligent editorial, sophisticated design and a searchable award-winning Web site, www.parentmap.com. Designed for parents of newborn through college-aged children, ParentMap has a monthly circulation of 85,000 magazines distributed around the Sound. ParentMap reaches new and expectant parents with BabyMap (bi-annual), and also publishes the popular annual Family Directory (print and online searchable edition), LearningMap, SummerMap and a brand new HealthMap, launching in 2008.
In addition, ParentMap sponsors the annual Pathways Lecture Series featuring local and national parenting experts, as well as an annual Independent School Fair and Preschool Preview Events. We have joined with other businesses and organizations in our community to bring parents access to experts in their field, addressing the many challenges and concerns that parents face. The 2008 Pathways Lecture Series starts in March, 2008. For more information, please visit www.parentmap.com.
What makes ParentMap unique? The answer is twofold: First, our vision to be the intelligent and trusted resource connecting parents and community in and around greater Seattle and the South Sound; and second, our people. Nearly all of the employees responsible for ParentMap publications, lectures, education fairs and online content are parents themselves, passionate about providing busy moms and dads with easy access to valuable local information.
Each issue contains a comprehensive calendar of events section specifically designed to “pull out,” so parents can post it and use it throughout the entire month. The calendar provides information about community events and stay-at-home fun, often offering unique outings for families. A searchable online calendar is also available for parents looking for specific activities.
We at ParentMap are proud of our outstanding relationships within our community. An important part of our mission is to “connect Seattle area parents and community.” We work toward that goal every day by partnering with large and small institutions that serve local families. We share a common passion with our partners – we all care deeply about children, families and the community that we call home. We are thrilled to have a wonderful partnership with The Kirlin Foundation and we applaud the work they do on behalf of children.
ParentMap’s monthly newsmagazine is available for free at over 1,600 distribution sites throughout Puget Sound area.
