About Us

The Pacific Northwest’s No. 1 parenting media brand

At ParentMap, it’s our business to build an inclusive community that informs, engages and inspires Puget Sound parents and families — while having plenty of fun, too! To accomplish this important mission, our team follows four brand values:

  • Be the community for the community
  • Be authentic
  • Focus on the future
  • Educate ourselves and others

What does this mean for you? It means that ParentMap understands what it means to be a parent because we’ve been there, too. It means that we act with integrity, establish trust through credibility and own our mistakes. It means that we’re focused on how to better serve families, that we never settle for the status quo and we aren’t afraid to get messy as we continue to innovate and improve. And it means that our deep community connections, family advocacy and unique partnerships allow us to help build a better village for families.

ParentMap is a women-owned and women-operated business. We’re dedicated to being there for you, from the scariest moments and biggest questions to the deepest joys of parenting.
