The Parent Centre was established more than 35 years ago in May 1983 as a project of Cape Town Child Welfare Society. The Centre was initially started as a primary prevention project to reduce the incidence of child abuse through the promotion of positive parenting and effective child management practices that would enhance the well-being and self-esteem of parents and children.

This project later grew into a branch of Cape Town Child Welfare Society and in 1997 became an independent, registered NPO.

For the last 35 years, The Parent Centre has been promoting positive parenting through various programmes and workshops. Read more here.
