Children and Young people

We're working hard to make our City a fun, vibrant and safe place to live and play for children and young people. 

What's On

As well as hosting a number of events each year, we are proud to support many youth events within the City. For a complete list of what's on, check out our events calendar.

Youth Action Plan

We’ve released our first ever Youth Action Plan. You can view a copy here. The Department of Communities provided funding under the Youth Engagement Grants Program to help deliver this plan.


The City seeks to address the needs of young people within the Vincent community by offering youth focused funding to support local organisations. The City’s partnership with Y HQ Leederville aim to deliver community programs, events and services which address the needs of all the City’s young people. The partnership approach assists in providing services to those in need, by supporting the established Youth Squad, mental health workshops and employability, life and soft skill workshops.

The City is a member of the Youth Affairs Advisory Council of WA (YACWA) and Youth at Risk Network (YARN).

Local services

Toy libraries

At a toy library you can borrow from an array of toys that have been designed to support your child’s skill development and imagination. Toy libraries aim to support families and encourage togetherness with quality time spent playing with children. Toy libraries are inexpensive and usually charge an annual membership fee. There are two toy libraries in the Vincent area:

Leederville Toy Library

Mount Hawthorn Toy Library

Early years


If your child will be 4 years old by 30 June they can go to Kindergarten at a school or a community kindergarten. There are two community kindergartens in Vincent:

Margaret Kindergarten

Leederville Early Childhood Centre

Play groups
