As parents ourselves, we understand how unbalanced life feels at the moment with COVID-19 at the forefront of everyone’s mind.

To make sure you’ve got everything you need in one place, we’ve created this special section to bring you essential information and resources for your family. Here you’ll find the updates on the COVID-19 (as outlined by the Ministry of Health), fun and affordable options for indoor play, online learning resources and more.

We’re all in this together. Kia kaha.
