WELCOME to our network of 6,000 members from all over Chicago.  Join NPN to get must-have parenting information any time your need it!  We will help you connect with like-minded families and explore all that Chicago has to offer Chicago families with a calendar full of fantastic events.

Join the Discussion.  Members flock to the NPN Discussion Forum to get great advice, support, and answers 24 hours a day - 7 days a week.

Below is just a sampling of our diverse Social Groups.  With the help of our incredilble Volunteer team, we bring together parents and families with shared interests.  We know as parents, how critical it is to feel a sense of community in such a large city.

Visit our Calendar for 30+ Monthly events - some for educational and some just for fun!  Parents have come to NPN for more than 30 years to meet, share resources, exchange advice and support one another. 

To help coordinate events in your neighborhood, please contact amy@npnparents.org.
