I'm a freelance writer just returned to Tassie from 8 years on the mainland. I've been writing honestly about personal experiences since school and now I'm sharing my experiences, opinions, passions and wicked sense of humour with the world.
Spring into Springfield
While the saying 'it takes a village to raise a child' may have become a cliché, the idea behind it—that children grow up as a part of a community—remains an important one. A community is not just a location but an opportunity for connection. It is integral for children to develop a sense of belonging and identity. This is a great event for mums and dads, in the greater Springfield region, with babies! Spend your morning amongst other parents in celebration and get connected. If you've just had a baby what a great way welcome your baby into the community.
Greater Springfield welcomes babies into the community

Connect I think it's important that parents support each other through the journey of raising children today. With lots of information stalls, this is also a great opportunity to connect with a range of services and organisations catering to babies and their families in Greater Springfield and surrounding suburbs.
