What we're about
The focus of this meetup group is for parents who have an only child at kinder or primary school in Melbourne who would like their Onlies to meet other Only Children in a positive group where both the parents and kids can have fun and make friends.
Our 11 year old son has many wonderful friends, most of which have two or three siblings so we find that those families tend to socialize more with families that have the same number of kids on the weekend so that their siblings don't miss out,,, sound familiar?
We are in our 40's and unfortunately were unable to have another child but whatever the circumstances of why any of us have an Only Child is not the issue here - the point is that we do and we cherish them and our lives together every day. We couldn't turn back time if we wanted to, so it's time to embrace the future and unite our Onlies, and us parents too.
There are 2 simple criteria to joining this ONLIES Melbourne meetup group....
1) Your Only is currently kinder or primary school age
2) You live within a 25km radius of Melbourne (or you are happy to travel to Meetups in Melbourne)
We look forward to you joining us and helping to create a friendship group for our wonderful only children. Although the group's focus is for our ONLIES, it's also about us parents making friendships too, and if you are a business owner or professional, possibly some networking opportunities as well.
Once we have a few members on-board, meetups will be scheduled at local parks or child friendly pubs on a monthly basis.
So if you would like to build a new network of friends for you and your child please join our group and we'll build it together.
