It’s National Families Week this week 15-21 May and we are celebrating all things families.
In Bayside, households with children make up 36.9 per cent of our residents. During Families Week, we are promoting the range of services we provide for our local families, including maternal and child health, Immunisations, library services, gallery and much more. We also provide information and support to families to connect with occasional care, access to kindergartens, playgroups, playhouses and day care.
Council offers a range of open spaces for families to enjoy, including playgrounds, parks and sportsgrounds.
This year’s theme for Families Week is Stronger Families, Stronger Communities, highlighting the importance of connectedness and social opportunities to a sense of wellbeing and fulfilment. We want families and communities to be stronger, happier and safer to enable every person to be the best version of themselves.
