Working Moms

NPN was created more than 40 years ago with working moms in mind. When you’re working two full-time jobs—mom and employee—your most precious resource is time, and NPN is here to help.


Searching for schools for your child and don’t have time to spend hours researching online? Our informative school search videos, Annual School Fair and School & Daycare Directory streamline the process. Have a question about work, kids, schools or anything else? Get quick answers from our parent community on our Discussion Forum.


And when you need reassurance or advice about juggling your two (or more!) jobs, our library of articles about the struggles and triumphs of working moms will help you feel less overwhelmed. Long way of saying: We got you, working moms.
