Regular Courses

 

Parent education programmes aim to assist parents with the various ages and stages of their children, giving them the knowledge and skill sets to be effective. The programmes are well supported by volunteers within each Centre as well as invited speakers who are knowledgeable about a wide variety of topics. 

Baby and You Courses are Currently suspended from July 2019

The Wairarapa Community have been incredibly fortunate to be able to attend Baby and You for free due to funding from the Wairarapa DHB for the past five years.  Unfortunately due to DHB funds needing to go else where, they have advised us that our contract and funding for this programme will no longer continue, effective from July 2019. 

We thank the DHB for enabling us to run this course Free of charge for the Wairarapa's new parents.  

At the present time Baby and You is Suspended while the committee work out future logistics around funding.
