Hi all
I have a 15 month old boy and finding it hard to find a play group with non vaccinated kids or kids with parents who are not closed minded.
I would also like parents to be considerate if their kids are sick and not bring them along. (Sounds like an obvious request but honestly there are so many parents I know who are so inconsiderate and bring there sick kids along!)

I'm not looking for an argument about about vaccinated vs non vaccinated. We all have reasons to the choices we make.

Ideally somewhere close to where I live, around ryde,concord,burwood would be great.

Yeah, good luck with that. All the play groups I know of have a number of close minded parents involved, thankfully.

May I ask why you would want to only hang out with non vaxxed kids?  

What is the difference? In fact wouldn't that increase your chances of illness?

Also there is a very real problem of incubation periods. Your child can still contract an illness well before symptoms appear.

I thought I must have misread this - do you mean vaccinated kids. Why on earth would you be looking to take a child to no vaccinated play dates and then to top it off you are worried about sick kids?

Have I missed the point?

Nice first post OP.

Vaccinating or wanting other parents to vaccinate their children is not being closed minded. Taking serious and potentially diseases seriously is not closed minded.

Why don't you find an anti-vaxing board and ask there? I'm sure they exist.

And I actually live in the Ryde area, most playgroups don't advertise their vaccination record as we assume parents do the right thing.

And people bring newborn babies to these things.

First Post... asking about a non vaxxing playgroup?

You don't want them vaccinated but you don't want sick kids around because parents should be considerate....haha...are you just messing with us??

If this is genuine does it really make sense to want to hang with groups of people who are not vaccinated? That means you would pass around these deadly diseases with no protection.
I think you need to think this through OP.

Sorry, had to fix the spelling mistake as it was annoying.


I am not sure if that's a good idea. Your child needs to be exposed to these viruses, germs and bacteria, so they build up an immunity. It's just common sense really!

So, if chicken pox is going around, you definitely want your playgroup to throw a chicken pox party!!! Why not apply it to measles and mumps?
