Canberra Rainbow Families Playgroup

Seahorse Playgroup - Canberra/Ngunnawal/Ngambri Land

Seahorse Playgroup is a social gathering for LGBTQIA+ parents, carers and their children aged 0-3 run on Ngunnawal and Ngambri land. We also organise casual weekend get-togethers for Queer families with children of any age.

Our fortnightly playgroup provides sensory activities for children as well as connection and belonging for parents and carers. Our aim is to create a community space where Queer families are celebrated and normalised.
Sessions start with a baby acknowledgement of country and rhyme time. We then do ‘parent circle’, a 15 min chat where we each share how we’ve been going that week. Most sessions also have a featured planned activity run by our facilitator.
Direct/breast/chest feeding or pumping welcome. Children's toilets, change mats, and kettle for formula water/bottle sterilisation available.
