Children's Week

Children's Week

Children's Week is a national celebration. It recognises the talents, skills, achievements and rights of children. The event takes place in October every year, with thousands of Victorian children taking part in the festivities.

Visit this website in early 2024 for the latest Children’s Week updates. These include the 2024 Children’s Week theme, the 2024 dates and more information about Children’s Week Grants.

Local councils, not-for-profit organisations, schools and early childhood services organise a variety of events during Children's Week. These include open days, displays, special events, virtual spaces and online-based activities. The events celebrate childhood and showcase children's achievements.

All Children's Week events in Victoria are free to families with children aged from birth to 12 years. The events are a great opportunity for families to enjoy fun, engaging and educational experiences.

Children's Week Grants

Applications for a 2024 Children's Week grant will be open in mid-2024. More information will be provided closer to that time.
