New Issue Coming Monday

Columbus Parent

Coming Monday, it's Columbus Parent's February issue. And if you thought our annual January Childcare directory was a monumental work, wait until you see our Schools Directory. This is the most comprehensive list of Central Ohio schools ever compiled (and dare we say, it might be the Ohio Department of Education database just for including ALL schools, including the private and parochial schools). We've included district report-card rankings, full contact information, descriptions of the charter schools (most tend to have a specific focus), tuition, grades served and current enrollments.

And of course we have our usual assortment of fun and information articles.The Age Appropriate news feature stories address the issue of allergies, while our Family Finance columnist Denise Trowbridge has compiled a super useful guide to money-saving apps for smartphones.

There's a great Valentine's Day craft project from our friends at Wholly Craft, plus we found another free indoor play space for you, a hidden gem of a restaurant your kids will love out in Union County, and we shine the Neighborhood Spotlight on Marysville.Oh, and we've even got date night ideas for you and your honey this Valentine's Day.So whether you pick up http://www.columbusparent.com/content/pages/locations.html or click on www.columbusparent.com, be sure to check out the new issue next week!
