SPACE for you and your baby

A programme for parents with young babies

Join the SPACE programme with your new baby and start an amazing journey together.

SPACE aims to promote the value of parenthood and offers ongoing support for new families. Sessions are around 2 hours long and include: opportunities for parents to meet and get to know one another; discussions and information sharing on relevant child development and parenting topics; an introduction to rhymes, music, and books for infants; and play sessions with age-appropriate equipment that supports infants' learning and development.

SPACE sessions are run by qualified facilitators, along with other professionals who come together to share their collective knowledge and experience.

Groups of 10 to 15 parents and their babies meet weekly at a local Playcentre in a relaxed and baby friendly environment for a period of approximately two or three school terms (each term is approx. 10 weeks long).

Programme Cost

A one-off non-refundable programme fee is payable at time of registration to confirm your place.

If the cost is a barrier to joining the programme please contact hutt.space@playcentre.org.nz

Future Programmes

We aim to have a new group for parents of babies aged from birth to five months starting at the beginning of each new school term. Occasionally we are able to offer places to older babies if a parent withdraws from a course.

Due to the high popularity for our SPACE programme we recommend that you register your interest when baby is born. If you do miss out on a place on a SPACE programme you are very welcome to visit your local Playcentre, where you and your baby are welcome to attend a general session.

If the programmes advertised do not fit with your location or babies age please contact us at Hutt.Space@Playcentre.org.nz
