Children's Week in Geelong represents one of the largest community celebrations focusing on young children.
Children’s Week 2019 will take place from Friday 18 October to Sunday 27 October 2019.
The Children’s Week theme for 2019 is based on the United Nations
Convention on the Rights of the Child Article 24 ‘'Children have
the right to good quality health care, clean water, nutritious food and a clean
environment so that they will stay healthy’.
Thousands of children and their families around the country will be involved in activities during Children’s Week thanks to the participation of schools, early years services, play groups, toy libraries, libraries and cultural and community groups.
These events and activities focus the attention of the wider community on children and what’s important to them.
Children get to celebrate their own achievements, display their talents, demonstrate their skills and just have good fun.
Get Involved! Not for profit community groups and organisations within the City of Greater Geelong can hold a children's event or activity that is open to the public.
Grants of up to $400 are now open and close 12 July.
Organisations that would like to hold an event during
Children’s Week and don’t require a grant are required to also complete the
application form for their event to be included in the Geelong Children’s Week
