Our Story

Sacramento Parent has been serving families throughout Greater Sacramento for over 25 years! We’re delighted to continue as the longest running, locally-owned parenting publication in the area. Still, we are ever grateful to loyal readers and advertisers. Nearly half our advertisers have been with us five years or longer, and that speaks for itself.

Our Approach

Simply put, Sacramento Parent is a brand that is brought to you by parents for parents. We are a group of passionate Moms that have successfully combined our education, experience and talents to do what we love, which is connecting families with local services and resources, places and events, and to share amazing stories and relevant tips.
