Welcome to Parenting Adventures: Matua Pai –

We are all on a different adventure.

Here at Neighbourhood Trust we are passionate about supporting whanau. Parenting has both its joys and challenges. We have created a jam-packed day full of wisdom, research backed advice and resources to give you tips and strategies to help your whanau flourish and enjoy being together. You will have the opportunity to pick 2 of the workshops that best meet your needs at this time; 1 in the morning and 1 in the afternoon. (The Blended Families workshops will run over the morning and afternoon time so you will just be able to do this workshop).

The day starts at 9.30am with our keynote speaker – Pio Terei – and ends at 3.45pm after a question and answer session. If you have any questions that you hope will be answered, please email cdw@nht.org.nz so that we can do our best to ensure that they are covered. Morning tea and lunch will be provided for registered adults.

We wish to thank our funders who have enabled us to provide this amazing event free of charge.

Childcare – we know that for some parents it can be really difficult to organize childcare for a day, so we will have free childcare available, provided by our experienced Oscar staff. You will need to book your children in for this, so that we can be sure to have the correct staffing ratios on the day. Children will need their own lunch and snacks.

Please be aware that our venue has some limitations to numbers, so register early to avoid disappointment.

We hope that you will enjoy Parenting Adventures and find something that will help your whanau to flourish on your adventure, wherever that might take you.
