For five years and counting, NEXTGEN continues to offer educational articles, school news, informative remarks from leading community figures and consumer friendly articles to help guide parents on wide-ranging family topics. Additional features include restaurant reviews, kids cooking, science features, health and fitness columns, advice for parents, holiday planning and ELC initiatives, where NEXTGEN delivers updates, news and columns from ELC staff on what they are doing in the early learning community.
