On the 17th May, NCNS held a Sassy Young Mums Reunion for our Nepean Young Pregnancy Support (NYPS) mums who have now had their babies and who wanted to catch up, share their experiences and hopefully meet new and old friends.
The reunion was held at Thornton Community Centre in Penrith, with various activities for babies, and toddlers, Penrith City Council Playvan, coffee van and breakfast.
Thank you to Catherine from the Penrith City Council Mobile Playvan!
The huge ball pit was a massive hit with the little ones!
Amy, NCNS Early Childhood Worker, and Justine, NCNS Community development worker, worked together to create a safe, welcoming space, that not only provided tons of fun activities for the kiddos, but a perfect opportunity for young mums and Dad’s to connect.
Mata from Centrelink mingled with the families, providing advice on the spot, and we also had a visit from the SIDS Foundation, talking to parents about safe sleeping habits.
When asked what their favourite part of the day was, Julie, NCNS Operations Manager replied, “Seeing the families playing with their children and looking after each other’s children; seeing young parents connect with each other and having conversations about their kids, their lives, their challenges and their absolutely adoration of their babies; seeing the babies playing together, exploring and having an amazing time, and of course the cuddles!”
