The 4 March 2018 is Children’s Day. Children's Day is a chance for all of us to get together and celebrate the precious young people in our lives.

Children’s Day –Te rā o ngā Tamariki, provides New Zealanders with an opportunity to give time to children. Children’s Day has been running since the early 2000’s and is on the first Sunday of March each year. Hundreds of events happen all over the country each March, some big and some small.

Children’s Day is all about putting our tamariki first, including:

  • Giving time
  • Praising and encouraging
  • Listening and talking
  • Sharing Love and affection
  • Exploring new experiences
