How can I post about an open spot at my child's preschool or coop?

Since OPEN SPOTS is information that can quickly change, we are moving these posts to the CLASSIFIEDS where information that becomes out-of-date lives (i.e., nannies get jobs, strollers are sold, sublets go off the market). If the business wants to advertise the open spot on the Advice list please tell them to contact Rachel at " target="_blank">advertising@parkslopeparents.com. If you need to join the Classifieds group, email " target="_blank">membership@parkslopeparents.com and include your full name, email related to your account, and a request to be added.  

 

I want to post about a petition 

While we applaud your spirit of activism, though, we ask that people not post forwarded mass emails to the list unless they originated within Park Slope and pertain directly and specifically to our community. Given the large volume of causes circulating on the Internet at any given time, this is the only way we can prevent our members from being overwhelmed. Thanks for understanding.
