About 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. Hawkes Bay 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.



Parents Centre is run by volunteers who are parents just like you! We are a friendly group of people and contribute in different ways to make things happen. There are lots of jobs big and small that need to be done, so we could do with your help. In return we can offer you fun committee meetings, personal and professional development opportunities, friendship, and even cheaper membership and course fees!

Committee benefits are: subscription to Kiwi Parent Magazine, Monthly newsletters, access to special interest evenings and antenatal classes, exclusive discounts through baby and parent suppliers, invaluable parent support & friendships and enabling you to make a difference in your community. If you think you might be able to help out in some way (no matter how small), please email us on

Support and information

Everyone seems to have an opinion on parenting! When friends and family, experts and society all have conflicting advice on how to deal with parenting challenges, it can be hard deciding what’s right for your child and your whānau.

Our great parenting programmes are all based on the very latest research and designed to empower parents so that you can make informed choices with confidence. Have a look at our courses page to find out more.
