Hi! We’re Chicago Parent.

We believe healthy, supported families are the foundation of strong communities — and we’ve been supporting both here in Chicagoland since 1984. Chicago Parent informs, advises and inspires this generation of parents (and the next!) with the best local resources, stories and more. We’re a creative, proudly local media company and the Chicago region’s trusted parenting hub for over 40 years. And we’re here to help you do the most important job in the world.

All for Parents, All the Time

Whether it’s tips from toddlers to teens, staying healthy, picking a new school or, of course, things to do with kids around town, Chicago Parent covers it with our popular print and digital content. We meet parents right where they are. Our website, newsletters, social media and bimonthly magazine curate the area’s top events, hidden gems and powerful stories. Each month, we reach an average of 500,000 local parents, helping them make parenting a little easier … and a lot more fun. See for yourself!

“Families are the heartbeat of all we do. We’re here to support you, help you grow alongside your kids and fill your calendars with fun.”

— Alexis Bourkoulas, CEO
