About Manukau 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. Manakau Parents Centre is one of 52 Parents Centres across the country.

Our branch focuses on families living in Manukau, Manurewa, Takanini, Papatoetoe, Flat Bush, East Tamaki, Mangere Bridge and Wattle Downs.  We also work closely with the other South Auckland Parents Centres in Papakura and Franklin.

Nationally we are one of the largest providers of networks and support for parents with children up to the age of 6 years. We offer a range of courses covering many aspects of parenting – focused on the early years. In addition we also offer a range of activities allowing parents to socialise and meet others experiencing similar challenges and joys. 

Parents Centre can be hugely beneficial for parents-to-be as well as existing parents who want to be better informed or to build a stronger support network.



We would not be as great as we are without the ongoing help of you – the Parents and Caregivers.

We’d love to give you an opportunity to support our committee either as a committee member or as a member of the “Friends of the Committee” support group.

Come and join us for a cuppa at our next meeting to say hello and have a chat, kiddies always welcome.
