Kia ora and welcome to the Family Space!

We are all about supporting and strengthening families in our community.  With its focus on building relationships the Family Space provides a safe and friendly environment where family life is encouraged and nurtured. Our playgroups are informal and relaxed and a great way to meet other families.

Kia orana everybody!  My name is Karen and I have been the Playgroup Coordinator at our Family Space Centre since July 2019. 
I love being a part of a "whanau" centre like ours and along with a great team of people behind the scenes, I love doing what I do!

Please see below to find out about what Playgroups we provide. 
We are a pretty friendly bunch and we promise to make you feel welcome!  Hope to see you soon at the Family Space - come along and try a playgroup - EVERYONE IS WELCOME.
