Children's Development supports and initiates projects and services that assist in addressing the needs of families with children aged 0 to 12 years.
Information is provided to the public and service providers via the City's website, Cockburn Kids parent eNewsletter, school eNewsletter and emails. This service liaises with a range of relevant service providers including schools, P&Cs, P&Fs and chaplains.
• Froggy's Fun on the Green - free outdoor playgroup sessions in the park
• Skateboard coaching clinics opens in a new window - free summer sessions for 6-12 year olds
• Teddy Bears Picnic - free annual community event for babies and toddlers
• Parent workshops and other one-off events, e.g. First Aid and Fun with Fathers.
Each year the City provides primary and high schools with graduation book awards including a Community Services Graduation Award and an optional Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Award. These do not have to be requested; the City will contact your school to make arrangements.
The CRG opens in a new window is a consultative group for child-related projects across the City providing a voice for children, and a means to develop children's interest in civic affairs for 7-12 year olds.
All information contained in this book will be made available online via the City's new school webpage. Online content will be updated throughout the year.
