Parental Education

Tauranga Parents Centre run a variety of parent education courses and support groups for new parents and families within Tauranga, Mt Maunganui and the surrounding suburbs. The Parent Education classes we offer throughout the year cover a range of parenting related topics, allowing parents to access guest speakers and vital support around breastfeeding, first aid, nutrition and brain development for both baby and the wider family. 

We are also hoping to offer craft sessions later this year, for parents to create family friendly items for their child including natural play toys such as a heuristic toy basket.
