If you live in Bloomington, IN, take a look around for the free publication, Bloomington Parent Magazine. I was contacted last year to write an article on local First Steps and Head Start programs. These programs offer educational and developmental resources for young children and their families.
It was a pleasure interviewing parents and providers for this article. The best part was it made me feel truly at home in Bloomington. There is something about writing for your community that makes you feel part of your community.
Bloomington Parent is a free resource distributed at locations such as the Monroe County YMCAs and public libraries or The Green Nursery downtown. It is published seasonally and has an associated blog. More about Bloomington Parent can be found on its Facebook page.
