Parent development workshops

The city recognises the important role parents and caregivers play in supporting the development of children through the early years.  Parent development workshops are a great way to learn more about challenging topics and everyday issues such as sleep, play, nutrition, first aid and protective behaviours.  Upcoming workshop topics include:

Family focus – Discover the best ways to photograph your children (ages 0 to 5)
Natureplay (ages 5 to 12)
Protective behaviours (ages 4 to 10)

For more details check out the events calendar or contact to go on our mailing list to find out about them as soon as they are advertised.

Breastfeeding Welcome Here

The city's Breastfeeding Welcome Here project aims to make mothers feel comfortable breastfeeding in the community.

Breastfeeding Welcome Here stickers are located at various locations throughout Subiaco Library. There is also a comfortable breastfeeding chair and footstool in the children's library.

A number of local businesses are on board. If you're interested in a sticker for your business, contact the city on (08) 9237 9317 or email

Mums without Mums

Mums without mums is a fortnightly session for women who are raising young children without their own mother, for whatever reason. The group is facilitated by a local volunteer and is open to all, regardless of where you live.
The group provides a chance for women in similar situations to share their stories, support each other and talk about raising their children over a tea or coffee.

The group meets fortnightly on a Tuesday (apart from school holidays) at Lords Cafe, 3 Price Street Subiaco.

Sessions are free and creche is available for $7.30 per session.
