About Us

A Community group for parents and caregivers of children of any age.  Providing local events, activities, speakers, workshops and picnics. 


The group was formed in June 2010 after a group of parents met whilst attending a weekend workshop; “The Awesome Parents Course” at Lincoln University run by Lisa McKimm of Parenting Worx. After an exhilarating weekend of learning and sharing, the group decided to meet regularly for a coffee and catch up to offer continued support for each other. More recently with the additional challenges Canterbury residents have faced  we felt the need to do more to help support local families and have since gone on to organise workshops and events.  We now have a Committee who meet regularly and have been successful with funding applications to ensure continued support can be offered to local families.



We like to be proactive in meeting our own needs and those identified within our community of parenting in the Selwyn District. If you would like to attend a Committee meeting or have any ideas or suggestions we would love to hear from you.



We like to support and work with existing services in Selwyn and help reduce gaps as they are identified.
