Tauranga Parents Centre was formed in 1968 and is part of a nationwide, not for profit, volunteer based organisation that has been setup by parents, for parents. We are one of 50 Parents Centers throughout New Zealand as part of Parents Centres NZ Inc.
We believe that parenting is everything and that great parents will grow great children! We work with parents to equip them with the best in knowledge and skills and support so that they can be the best parents they can possibly be.
Tauranga Parents Centre provides Childbirth Education (aka antenatal classes) and Parent Education classes for families.
Tauranga Parents Centre is run by a team of volunteer parents. All of the services provided to the community, are organised by this committee of dedicated volunteers, wanting to give something back to our local area.
Our classes range from Childbirth Education Courses, First Aid and CPR to Toilet Training, and we facilitate Facebook groups after your Childbirth Education Class to encourage participation in catch ups when the babies arrive. A lot of our Childbirth Education Class participants become life long friends, sharing milestones and memories as their children grow.
