SPACE Saturday mornings
Love Mamas and Te Kainganui to offer SPACE sessions from July 2017
SPACE is an excellent way to meet other new parents and caregivers, and to learn about and bond with your beautiful baby in a warm, engaging and safe space.
Our kaupapa behind the structure of the course is to encourage Mums, partners and/or caregivers to all join in. We will be holding classes on Saturday mornings so that baby can come along together with two primary caregivers (welcoming parents who stay home with baby, parents who work outside the home, or another caregiver who will be spending a lot of one on one time with baby). Baby plus one is of course great too!
We feel that including main caregivers that might not have during-the-week flexibility opens up a great two-way communication channel within the home: learning together with baby is a great way to provide consistent, confident and loving parenting and partnership.

The second ten week course is currently taking bookings; Saturday mornings starting from Saturday, 29 July 10am-12.30 at Te Kainganui, 64 Tasman Street, Mount Cook, Wellington.
The course is facilitated by Vic Parsons from Love Mamas and Megan White from Te Kainganui Early Education Centre.
Each session runs for two and a half hours each Saturday and is designed to be shared with partners.
The course costs $150 in total with a $50 deposit required at the time of enrolment to secure your place. Morning tea is provided at each session.
If you'd like to enquire about enrolment in the next SPACE session run by Love Mamas and Te Kainganui then please email Megan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
