The Parenting Place

With an Allpress café to relax in, workshops to encourage and inspire, and a bookshop filled with specialist parenting resources, parenting help has never been so accessible. The Parenting Place is designed and run by Parents Inc. to provide support and solutions for all parents. Located at 300 Great South Road, Greenlane, Auckland, we are open Monday to Friday from 8.30am to 5.00pm.The cafe is open between 8.00am - 3.30pm.


Our practical workshops for parents run during each school term. They are scheduled to work around school and kindy hours, or in the evenings to accommodate as many parents as possible. Workshops cover pre-birth topics all the way through to parenting tweens and teens. There are also a number of relationships and lifestyle workshops. All workshops are $10 unless otherwise stated.

Nursing mothers are welcome to bring their babies, however if they become unsettled and disturb other participants, we request you vacate the room to settle your baby. If you bring your baby please bring them in their car seat rather than a pushchair to avoid overcrowding in the workshop rooms. We are not licensed to care for children in a crèche setting, but we do have toys available for toddlers to play with in the lounge area for short periods of time.
