The Stork Network was established in 2016 by friends Zalie Doyle and Annie Vince. The idea; a service offering new parents the support and education they deserve and need during the crazy journey into parenting. Initially we were solely a private education provider with our #1 course Learning Babies running out of hired rooms in Ashburton, Mid Canterbury. A short time later antenatal education, toilet training and an introductory to solids classes were added and classes were delivered across Christchurch, Mid and South Canterbury.
In 2017 we took the business online with the establishment of our website offering our most loved children's products nationwide and in 2019 The Stork Network moved into a retail premises which added a whole new dynamic to what we could offer. With the addition of child restraints, a coffee bar and relaxed seating area; we really do have you covered.
We love being able to offer a safe space where people feel comfortable and accepted, no judgement, supported and not to mention a child-friendly space where they can meet other parents. Our store is staffed by qualified parenting educators who are passionate about offering advice and support when you need it most.
