Mooroopna’s Ferrari Park was full of tiny tots last Tuesday in celebration of National Children’s Week.
Children from UnitingCare Cutting Edge and Save the Children centres across Shepparton, Mooroopna and Dookie joined together for a picnic and a morning of fun activities.
UnitingCare multicultural project worker Harmeet Dhillon said the event was organised ‘‘to raise awareness about the importance of early childhood education and the role it plays in the child’s development’’.
Ms Dhillon said it was also a great opportunity for different cultures within the community to mingle.
‘‘The aim was to get the parents and children together for a fun day out,’’ she said.
‘‘It also gives a chance for migrant families, particularly culturally and linguistically diverse families, to mix with (other) families and share with them their parenting styles and to get to know each other well.’’
