Parents Centre is a community based not for profit organisation set up by parents for parents in 1952. Parents Centres is represented in 50 main centres throughout New Zealand.

Our vision:

"New Zealand
society values parenting
as being fundamental to the well-being of all"


The impact on society of excellent parenting is tangible - the cost of poor parenting reflects across the social spectrum of Health, Education, and Justice. It is exponential in terms of the result on our social structure.
