Additionally, there is health and safety information for pregnant women and children from infancy to the teen years. A "Quick Links" section includes information on H1N1 (swine flu), vaccines, growth charts, home safety, violence prevention and more. An easy-to-use "A to Z" index lets users quickly find information on thousands of health and safety topics.

Parent Portal also includes informative videos on a wide range of topics and links to other resources provided by government agencies. Additionally, users can sign up to receive automatic email updates on subjects of interest to them.
