Our ambitious dream at The Parenting Place is for Aotearoa New Zealand to be a place where every family flourishes and every child feels deeply loved. In fact, we believe that healthy, loving families can transform society.
Established in 1993 and now with 86 staff and 585 volunteers, The Parenting Place develops and delivers innovative, fun and accessible programmes nationwide, including:
- Parenting courses: Toolbox and Building Awesome Whānau – tools for the epic parenting journey (0-18 years)
- Dynamic in-school education: Attitude programme – head and heart skills for students and their whānau. The Parenting Place is the largest health curriculum provider in NZ schools.
- Intensive coaching: one-on-one parenting and relationship strategies for the twists and turns of family life, offered via phone, Skype, email or in person.
- Media and events: inspiration and advice through social and traditional media channels – TV, radio, videos, articles, magazines, and resources – plus large-scale parenting and student events.
