Children’s Week Brisbane 2019

Children’s Week Brisbane 2018 runs from Saturday 19th October to Sunday 27th October.

This is a week-long celebration that embraces Universal Children’s Day. This was created by the UN in 1954 and is designed to promote friendship, tolerance, respect and understanding amongst the children of the world. The overall aim is to have a positive uniting impact on the community and embrace the idea of the wonder of childhood!

Children’s Week aims to:

  • to heighten community awareness of the needs of children;
  • to promote knowledge of services which are available to children and their families;
  • to stimulate education in quality child care and child rearing;
  • to increase communication between children and adults and to provide opportunities for children and adults to share enjoyable experiences.

Last year’s Children’s Week had the theme; “Education should develop each child’s personality and talents to the full.” This is DEFINITELY something we embrace here as part of our personal ethos at Families Magazine!

Why celebrate Children’s Week Brisbane?

This diverse range of events and activities will be replicated at national, state and local level. The goal is to recognise the talents, skills and abilities of ALL children. Playgroups, schools, childcare centres, kindys, cultural groups, local libraries and community groups will all engage and come together to celebrate our little darlings. This will (hopefully) continue to encourage families to play, learn and grow together.

As adults, we have a role to play in nurturing our children and providing them with a wide variety of opportunities that speak to WHO they are as individuals.
