A Northern Beaches mother-of-two wants to set up a daycare for unvaccinated children in a direct response to the ‘no jab, no play’ laws.
Sydney mum, Heidi Jade Street from Mona Vale, reportedly posted the idea to closed Facebook group ‘Vaccine Free Australia’ which has more than 5000 members, the Daily Telegraph reports.
“I would like to open a daycare in my home for 3-4 children, 2 days per week. I’m flexible with hours and days,” she wrote.
“I have 2 children, and my eldest son attends the local Steiner school. I have a strong passion for children’s health and wellbeing and have a beautiful nurturing soul. Children’s days would be spent among nature, a walk to the beach, learning through play and games, art and craft, yoga, dance.
“Please let me know if this interests you.”
She reportedly went on to argue that vaccination injury has had an effect on thousands of Australian families whose children suffered severe reactions to vaccinations.
Many parents were quick to respond, with some even expressing interest in setting up similar establishments as far away as Adelaide.
MP for Wakehurst, Brad Hazzard, has deemed Ms Street’s idea as “extremely disturbing”.
“The lady inviting northern beaches children to be exposed to diseases that have largely been eradicated in the last 100 years through immunisation, I would just say to her that she should think very carefully and understand that watching a little baby die of whooping cough or like the little girl from the north coast this week with tetanus who is in an induced coma to keep her alive, should be at the forefront of her mind,” he said.
“I am beyond belief she could do this. It’s extremely disturbing.”
