Main Line Parent Best for Families Guide: 2021

Your guide to the BEST local resources for families around the Main Line.

Presented by the Main Line Parent team

Meet the Main Line Parent LOVE Award Winners and Family Favorites, nominated and chosen by local parents as the BEST local resources for Families around the Main Line.

The Main Line Parent team was proud to present a $1,000 donation to Smith Memorial Playhouse and Playground on behalf of our Members and Communities at the 2021 LOVE Awards Celebration. A treasured destination for over 100 years, Smith strives to be Philadelphia’s foremost resource for play by providing opportunities for unstructured creative play for children 10 and younger. You can learn more about their intiatives (including a new Urban Nature Preschool!) at smithplayground.org.


Parenting around the Main Line is all about personal style: Maybe you’re relaxed and free-range, maybe you’re more structured and authoritative. No matter what  kid-rearing philosophy you adopt or which zip code you call home, parenting is THE BEST with a village of neighbors and friends who can share their experiences and referrals with you. We created Main Line Parent to support our craving for this kind of connection and we are so proud to present our 8th Annual LOVE Award Winners and Family Favorites in this 2021 Best for Families Guide.

Sign up for YOUR High Five to get our curated roundup of things to do in Philly and around the Main Line (virtually and in person), as well as the latest guides and updates from local businesses, delivered straight to your inbox every Thursday.

Main Line Parent is published by a team of local women to connect families raising their kids around the Main Line and Philly’s Western Subsurbs with resources, events, and each other. It all started with our vibrant Main Line Parent Community Facebook Group dedicated to Building Community (join the conversation with our 30,000+ local members!) and our Email Newsletters, which deliver our curated roundup of things to do in Philly and around the Main Line (virtually and in person), as well as our latest news and updates from local businesses, each week!
