Rainbow Families is a 100% volunteer organisation, providing a network of support to children and families within the NSW LGBTIQ community. One of the ways we support the LGBTIQ community is by working with Social and Play Groups that support Rainbow Families.
Are you a Rainbow Family in the Macarthur or South Western Sydney areas? Do you want to meet lesbian mums, gay dads, transgender parents and their children? Currans Hill Rainbow Babies and Kids Playgroup, which is run through Playgroups NSW, is a welcoming playgroup in the Macarthur area of Sydney.
(If your children are a little older, have a look at Macarthur Rainbow Families which many of our members are also involved with)
Currans Hill Rainbow Babies and Kids Playgroup
A weekly Playgroup for Rainbow Families and their babies, toddlers and preschoolers. The Currans Hill Rainbow Babies and Kids Playgroup, which meets every Wednesday at 10am at the Currans Hill Community Centre, was started in early 2014 as a supported playgroup through Playgroups NSW. In the past, the group received both financial funding and administrative assistance while it was being established, and is now self funded.
The Currans Hill Rainbow Babies and Kids Playgroup is an informal session where LGBTIQ parents, carers, babies and children aged 0 to school age come together in a relaxed and friendly environment. We offer a wide range of play equipment, with lots of free time inside and outside so the children can explore and make friends in a fun, safe environment.
The group has grown to have a mixture of lesbian mums, transgender parents, gay dads, and members of our local community who are supportive and inclusive of LGBTIQ families.
Rainbow Families and Rainbow Babies and Kids playgroup attendance evolves over time, kids go off to school and new babies arrive. All playgroups depend on new memberships and families getting involved help them grow and keep them running! We would love new members to come and be part of our group!
