We're On The Move

It’s never too late to learn. And with Tararua REAP, it’s never too early. From babies to school age, through youth, to adults, we design courses, seminars and workshops that provide training and learning opportunities to help Tararua people and families succeed. It’s about providing community education that’s developed by those who know best – those who know its people and the opportunities that will see our region thrive.

WE’RE ON THE MOVE: Tararua Reap is temporarily moving to, 20 Allardice Street as at 1st Feb 2016, until further notice. All other contact information remains the same.

We work with families, supporting parents to grow their skills in early childhood education through programmes like SKIP, and positive parenting.

We work with local schools to develop specialist programmes for children that support the New Zealand Curriculum – like reading assistance, music and kapa haka.

We work with individuals of all ages to give them the skills in areas from finance and computers to health and wellbeing so they can get involved in the economic and social life of our region.

Incredible Years Parenting

Tararua REAP will be running another Incredible Years Parenting Programme in 2014. This is an 18 week parenting programme for parents of children aged 3-8 years. It involves weekly sessions of around two hours. Over the weeks, parents develop strategies to build positive relationships with their children and to manage problem behaviours. Place are limited so if you want to be involved please register your interest by emailing Rebecca at or phone us on 06 374 6565.

Tararua Strengthening Families
