National Children’s Day originated from the Indonesian Women’s Congress (Kowani) in 1951, reports from various sources. This congress was agreed to be the Childhood Week every May 18, 1952.

Until later in 1953, Kowani changed his commemoration date to July 1-3. The date was changed so that it could coincide with the child’s school holidays.

However, in 1959, the anniversary date was again changed to June 1-3. The date was chosen because it coincided with International Children’s Day.
