Hoki Ki Te Rito is a free one-day-a-week programme to support our most vunerable Mum's and is based on the Mellow Parenting Programme (Glasgow, Scotland).

It is suitable for Mother's who have experienced or are experiencing some type of trauma eg: family violence, addictions and or mental health.

The programme's benefits include helping Mum's to improve their emotional and physical well-being, helping Mum's to develop confidence to parent well and to raise confident tamariki, it is a relationship based course that creates positive parent/child interaction.

Hoki Ki Te Rito runs over 14 weeks. During parent-only sessions, children are cared for by childcare staff, morning tea and lunch are provided.


A programme will be run in Pukekohe early in 2018.
