About

Poway Parents Network (PPN) makes it easy for:

  • Parents and guardians in the Poway Unified School District and surroundingĀ areas to find local services for their families, such as babysitters, tutors, music lessons, camps, sports leagues, and more.
  • Local service providers to market their businesses and keep their information up to date.

PPN's Directory of Services is free to search. Service providers must provide services in San Diego's North County and primarily serve children, parents, or families.

PPN is fiscally sponsored by Berkeley Parents Network, a 501(c)3 nonprofit serving over 35,000 parents in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Our Funding

To help pay for the development and operating costs, we charge some types of businesses a small fee based on the size of their organization to be included in our directory of services.

Donations from community members are greatly appreciated and will help us keep PPN running. Donations are tax-deductible thanks to our fiscal sponsorship from Berkeley Parents Network, a 501(c)3 nonprofit.

An annual report will be made available on this site every year detailing how funds are raised and spent.
