Children's Week

Celebrate Childrens Week, 20-28 October 2018

Children's Week is a national program recognising the talents, skills, achievements and rights of young people.

The 2018 theme is based on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child: Article 12 - children have the right to say what they think should happen and have their opinions taken into account.

Children's Week in 2018 will be held from Saturday 20 - Sunday 28 October 2018, where hundreds of activities attract thousands of Victorian families across the state.

Children's Week highlights the terrific work educational services and community groups do in Victoria and is supported by The Department of Education and Training.

During Children’s Week, local councils, organisations, schools and early childhood services organise a range of open days, displays and special events that celebrate childhood and showcase children's achievements.

All Children’s Week events are offered free-of-charge to Victorian families with children aged 0-12 years. This represents a great opportunity for Victorian families to enjoy a fun, engaging and educational experience at minimal expense.
