About Romp and Stomp

Continuing our relationship with the Melbourne Museum and a number of key Victorian education and care organisations, fkaCS are once again a member of the Romp and Stomp organising committee.

As with previous years, the event will take place at the Melbourne Museum on the Wednesday of Children’s Week. Complimentary entry to Romp and Stomp is included with a standard Melbourne Museum ticket on the day, and regularly draws a large crowd. Aimed at children and families, the day offers a range of fun, play-based activities and experiences showcasing the value of learning through play – for both children and adults – and the importance of shared learning experiences in child-adult relationships.

With various activities, music, storytelling and more, the program has been developed to highlight the value of education, experiences and diversity in early childhood development. Additionally, the organising committee has worked to incorporate some of the more unique, lesser known spaces within the museum. This year, an fkaCS Consultant and two bilingual workers will present songs and stories in various languages throughout the day. Our Culture and Community partners  Yarn Strong Sista will be holding gum leaf ochre painting sessions in the Milarri Gardens.
