More than 100 ways to celebrate Children's

Cooking, gardening, meeting reptiles and bugs, magic and plenty of playtime – Children's Week is full of activities across Victoria.

From 19-27 October, local councils, not-for-profit organisations, schools and early childhood services organise a range of open days, displays and special events that celebrate childhood and showcase children's achievements.

Kew Toy Library is inviting children to explore its collection of toys and board games. The library has more than 2,500 toys for children aged 0-12.

Vision Australia is hosting an activity to build resilience through Lego, physical challenges, self-evaluation and working together.

Caroline Chisholm Society is running a series of activities for parents and young children to bond with each other. The Society works with expecting mothers and mothers of babies and young children to help with pregnancy, parenting, mental health, social support and housing advice.

The whole week is a great opportunity for Victorian families to enjoy a fun and educational experience for free, and the Department has funded 116 events across the state.
