Kwinana, in particular, is building a reputation as a very family-friendly suburb. A look at the 2011 ABS Census shows just how family-friendly Kwinana is. Kwinana has 7,631 families and 11,486 private dwellings. In other words, 66.4% of all homes in Kwinana are inhabited by families. Incidentally, there are an average of 1.9 children per family.
The Kwinana Public Library: Helping Working Parents
46.6% of the families in Kwinana have both parents working. This can be a strain on child care, on recreation and on finding educational pastimes to help children grow into more effective adults. The new Kwinana Public Library, which recently opened as part of the Darius Wells Library and Resource Centre, is now a state of the art facility.
Better yet, the Kwinana Public Library has instituted a new timetable that makes it much more family-friendly than before. In the Children’s section of the library, popular programs Storytime and Rhymetime have received a new schedule that will benefit children, working parents and grandparents.
Rhymetime is now held from 9:30am to 10:00am on Friday mornings. It is designed for children between 0-2 years of age and offers rhymes, simple stories and songs. Storytime, which offers singing, stories and crafts for children between 0-5 years of age, will be held from 10:00am-11:00am on Friday and Saturday mornings.
Membership to the library is free to anyone living in WA and no bookings are necessary. This allows working parents, grandparents and all families to enjoy Rhymetime, Storytime and family-friendly activities at their convenience.
Why We Think This is Important
Kwinana, like the entire Rockingham area, is poised for capital growth. It is a great place for investors to buy family homes and an even better place for families to settle. The demographics are great and the Kwinana government has made a lot of family-friendly decisions in recent years.
