Who are we?

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 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 best parents they can possibly be. Tauranga Parents Centre provides Childbirth Education (aka antenatal classes) and Parent Education classes for families.

We are one of 50 Parents Centres throughout New Zealand as part of Parents Centres NZ Inc.

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 Baby and You, First Aid and CPR, to Toilet Training,
and we facilitate Facebook groups post 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.
