Erskineville Playgroup is moving

When someone in our community first becomes a parent, a Rainbow Families playgroups is often their first connection to the community. Some families may be isolated or not know many other parents, and arrive to find a friendly welcome. It’s a place for parents to get support with a new baby and for children to have a sense of community through friendships and play.
 The Erskineville playgroup has been running in various forms for over 12 years, and has been passed on from one active volunteer parent to another over these years. For anyone that has come to playgroup this year you will have met Gill who kindly volunteers her time each Thursday to open up and welcome the families that come to playgroup. 
In 2019 playgroup will be moving just up the road to the Newtown Neighbourhood Centre  as our current venue is being renovated. It will still be $3 per family, and morning tea will still happen so keep bringing your fruit along to share with the group. This space is on level one, so you will need to hop in the lift if you have a pram. We are bringing all of the kids favourite toys with us so hopefully everyone will have just as much fun as usual.
Rainbow families is excited about the partnership with Newtown Neighbourhood Centre, and think playgroup is the first of many potential projects we can work on together. The children at playgroup - with a little help from their parents have been decorating a new street library that will be a feature outside the Newtown Neighbourhood Centre next year.
Playgroup will be closed until January 10th. When we reopen in 2019 we will still be at Jospeh Sergeant Community Centre until January 24th. The fist playgroup at Newtown Neighbhood Centre will be on Thursday January 31st.  

We look forward to seeing you soon.
