Space for you and your baby

Space for you and your baby is a parenting programme mainly for first-time parents of newborn babies. Parents and babies attend the sessions together and extended whānau are always welcome. Participants usually join Space when their baby is between two and four months old. Parents of older babies are welcome to enquire if a suitable group has a place available for them to attend.

Our vision is “empowering and encouraging parents to support the development of the whole child in their first year of life.”

Space provides a safe place for parents to bond well with their babies, meet other new parents in their community and receive information and support from trained facilitators and each other. It allows parents and infants to learn and grow in a supportive, teaching-based, community environment.

The programme runs for two hours a week over the course of 30 weeks (excluding school holidays).

Each week there is the opportunity to:

  • participate in group discussions on child development topics
  • explore play, music, movement, books and stories with parent and baby
  • chat to other new parents over refreshments.

Auckland Anglican Space runs in several locations throughout Auckland. See below for a list.
