Children’s Week is a national program recognising the talents, skills, achievements and rights of young people. It is based on the articles expressed in the United Nations Convention on the Right of the Child, highlighting play, wellbeing and protection.
The Department works in partnership with local governments, Victorian schools and early childhood services to host activities during Children's Week that focus community attention on the needs and achievements of children and young people as they thrive, learn and grow.
During Children’s Week local councils, schools and early childhood services organise a range of open days, displays and special events that celebrate childhood, showcase children's achievements and the work of schools and early childhood services.
All Children’s Week events are offered free-of-charge to Victorian families with children aged 0 - 8 years. This represents a great opportunity for Victorian families to enjoy a fun, engaging and educational experience at minimal expense.
Children's Week 2014 will take place between Saturday 18 - Sunday 26 October.
