Use our discussion boards to connect with other parents for advice on everything from great picks for date nights to how to handle the terrible twos. Plan on meeting our members out and about the city at one of our events- check our calendar for more information on upcoming programs and events. Jump in and make the most of your NPN membership!

New Member Mingles are special events just for our new NPN families. We meet quarterly to welcome new members, share information about NPN and give you a chance to make new friends. Check our calendar for information on our next one!
