Anti-vaxxers excluded from day care have come up with an initiative to avoid the new tough No Jab No Play laws - by opening their own centre.
As of January 1, unvaccinated children in NSW are prevented from attending day care and directors face a fine of up to $5,500 for dodging the rules.
One NSW woman however, who describes herself as a 'vegan mum to a toddler living off grid near Byron Bay', has reportedly called for parents to join 'an affordable day care co-op,' according to the Daily Telegraph.

In a post publicly posted to an online community board, Amy Moffat wrote she has been considering sending a message to the government, opting to instead 'do it her own way'.
She wrote the mission of 'The Kids Co-op' was 'to provide an affordable, community-run, self-funded child minding co-operative open to all, where no regulations or legalities are imposed by government or funding bodies, and all decisions and operations are decided upon democratically as a community.'
Within just three weeks the co-op has garnered interest from 126 members.
Ms Moffat declined to comment when she was contacted by Newscorp.
The area is known for low vaccination rates with Mullumbimby's rate at just 50 per cent and Byron Bay at just 60 per cent among five year olds.
NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard said any unregulated child care service would face consequences.
They won't let it happen. It would throw up uncomfortable stats like the fact there would be no autistic or other 'autistic spectrum disorder' kids. Not to mention less sickness overall.
That's true...and the crooks who run things,wont allow that
