About Central Hawkes Bay Parents Centre

Parents Centre are a not-for-profit organisation who supports parents with knowledge and skills to better prepare them for birthing and parenting. Central Hawkes Parents Centre is one of 52 Parents Centres across the country.

We know that parenting is a huge life change because many of us have been on the same journey. Parents join for a coffee group or antenatal class and leave feeling rejuvenated, supported and understood.

Our programmes support and educate parents with children of various ages and stages of development.

CHB Parent’s Centre is proud to assist CHB families on their journey through parenting. We offer a wide range of services and education, as listed below. Most of our education classes and services are free to our Members. To become a Member please contact us.

Supporting parents through the early years because great parents grow great children.
