Across our community of Lifelong Learning Centres, we are excited to be celebrating the littlest people in our lives – children!
Children’s Week is an annual event acknowledging children’s rights and celebrating their talents, skills and abilities. Thousands of children and families across Australia celebrate through activities and events.
The United Nations are a driving force behind the annual campaign – calling on communities to provide positive childhood experiences and education opportunities, as well as protecting the rights of children. The United Nations Convention on the Rights of a Child is an important international agreement on childhood, which is incorporated into the experiences and practices in each Lifelong Learning Centre.

Jola Sung, Education Advisor at Lifelong Learning Centres spoke to us about the importance of supporting children.
“Children learn from people in their immediate surroundings – parents, siblings, educators and friends. It is incredibly important for us to all work together to have a consistent approach to support children’s development holistically”, explained Jola.
The education and experiences a child has in their first five years are the most important.
Children’s development isn’t just about literacy or math; it’s critically about social and emotional development and building positive relationships with those around them. The confidence that builds not only prepares them for school, but for a lifetime of positive outcomes.
