Toolbox Primary (5 to 11 years)

6 Week Course – for Parents/Caregivers of Children aged 5-11 years

Parenting Place is a charity with a heart for New Zealand families. Their programmes relate to those with a newborn, a teenager, a troupe of grandkids, or nieces and nephews, and are designed to inspire, encourage, and support the strengthening of whanau relationships.

ToolBox is one of their most widely delivered programmes.

Leaders are trained through the Parenting Place and Taranaki is lucky to have Katy Quest, Carla Moore, Caitlin Hocken and Sonya Goodchild-Brooks as accredited programme providers.

Course Outline

Toolbox Primary covers a range of topics, including the importance of love and connection, different parenting styles, understanding your child and their big feelings, discipline, boundaries, play and more.

This course is aimed specifically at Parents/Caregivers of 5-11 year old aged children.

What’s covered in the six sessions?

Session 1 – Love is the foundation
Session 2 – Parents
Session 3 – Stronger, deeper, closer
Session 4 – Heart-led parenting
Session 5 – Discipline without shouting, force or fluster
Session 6 – Putting it all together

Resources Required

The Toolbox Primary workbook is provided to each participant.


In 6 sessions, over 6 weeks, the Toolbox Primary programme supports the development of a strong and loving bond with your child, and will build your confidence as a parent/caregiver.

This course commences in Term 2, 2023 –  From 7pm – 9pm on Thursday 27 April 2023 (and weekly thereafter on 4, 11, 18, 25 May and 1 June 2023).

A further course will run in Term 3, 2023 – Dates TBC.

NB – We have determined that Term 4 is a very busy time for families, and people struggle to commit to 6 weekly sessions with so much going on, and many year-end commitments.


The cost is $50 per person, to be paid via invoice to secure your place, and covers the cost of the detailed workbook that is yours to keep for future reference. This cost goes directly to Parenting Place.

The Toi Foundation have generously funded the remaining $1,600 in operational costs of facilitating and delivering this course to participants.

If this cost is a prohibitor in you attending, then please talk to us to discuss.

NB – If you have registered with us before, please email us as we already have your details –

We have seen a 100% improvement post attending the workshops. Our house is a much calmer place now, with a better overall atmosphere.

Bernadette (Incredible Years and Toolbox)

I wanted to become a more conscious parent, whose reactions and reasons aren’t dished out without purpose or thoughts. This course has really made me more aware of who each family member is, how they respond, why they act like they do, and given me ways in which I can best communicate with them. I’ve enjoyed every minute, learnt a lot, and know it’s now up to me to refer back to the book and keep myself accountable!
