Teenage Parents

 

Being a teenage parent can be real challenge, but there are many organisations that can help you with parenting advice, emotional support, staying at school, financial support or just putting you in touch with other teen parents. 

You don’t need to feel that you’re on your own, especially if you feel that you lack family support or if you want to 
continue your education whilst caring for your child. Help is just a phone call away. See the list of support options below to find more information.

Education for Teen Parents

Teen parent schools provide a supportive environment for teen parents to continue high school education. On site early childcare centres allow students to be still actively involved in their child’s day. Hawke’s Bay currently has teen parent schools at William Colenso College in Napier and at Flaxmere College in Hastings.
