Parenting courses -Dunedin

Beach_Image.jpgWe offer a range of parenting courses for parents wishing to explore new ways of interacting with and responding appropriately to their children’s developmental needs.

 Courses run each term through the year and can be during the day or in the evening, depending on the course and what suits people.


 Courses are offered for parents/caregivers of babies and toddlers, Primary School aged Children, Intermediate aged kids and teenagers. The courses are facilitated by trained tutors using the “Parenting Place” Toolbox parenting material. Participants receive a manual covering all course material to keep as a resource. To see more about the course content, visit and click on Toolbox.


Courses are held at the agency or in various venues around the city. To find out when the next courses start, click here. to register for a course, email LIz or Paul

There is a nominal charge of $75.00 per person or $110.00 per couple, for this course.

However, we are happy for you to pay what you can afford - anything from a gold coin each week. Your contribution is confidential to you and the facilitators.

Our pool of Parenting Course tutors come mostly from teaching, social work or early childhood education backgrounds and of course are parents themselves.


Supervision of our tutors is provided by our Social Worker/parenting facilitator.
