Our digital edition is available for readers who can't get a print copy.
A lot has changed in the world since our Spring issue came out in early March.
As a result of the coronavirus, we know some of our readers might not be able to find a print copy of the magazine due to the closure of schools, libraries and other gathering places. The good news, however, is that you can still read Columbus Parent. Just click on the E-Edition at the top of our website, columbusparent.com, or go directly to this link to read an exact digital copy of the magazine.
Notably, the Spring issue—always our biggest of the year—features our annual Summer Camp Guide, which has 309 listings of day and residential programs in 12 categories as well as a story on the benefits of camp. (Most local organizers are still taking registrations.) It’s the most comprehensive guide of its kind in Central Ohio.
You’ll also find an in-depth look at the growing and critically important pediatric mental health crisis and how the medical community—including Nationwide Children’s Hospital—is trying to raise awareness and help these patients.
Other stories include a look at how assistive technology devices are helping special needs students in the classroom, tips on helping kids develop healthy relationships with technology, a profile of Fox in the Snow Cafe owners and parents Jeff Excell and Lauren Culley, and a Q&A with storyteller Lyn Ford. Plus, as always, there are insightful columns, a craft idea and more.
Though the remaining events in “The Fam Five” and our calendar have been canceled, other entertainment ideas still apply. For later use when stay-at-home orders and travel restrictions ease up, check out our roundup of 22 top Central Ohio playgrounds, a Nashville travel story and a dining review of BLunch.
And don’t forget to sign up for our weekly newsletter, “The Bulletin,” which features stories from the current issue as well as online exclusives, event ideas and more news you need to know.
We hope you and your families are weathering these changes well and finding joy in everyday moments.
Stay safe and healthy.
