Event’s organisation

The Government of Jersey has worked in partnership with an independent survivors' steering group to celebrate Children’s Day in 2022. Together we launched a survey to hear how children and young people wanted to celebrate Jersey's Children's Day this year.

A total of 332 people took part in the survey. As a result of the feedback, 2 free family events will be held.

A special thanks goes to all those who have been involved in organising and supporting the events.

Children’s Day 2020 and 2021

The first Children’s Day in Jersey took place in 2020. All schools and nurseries were gifted trees as part of the Tree of Renewal project. 

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, arrangements for Children’s Day were cut back.
