Which of the following sentences is correct?

The children are from the ages of five and fifteen.

The children are between the ages of five and fifteen.

The first sentence is very strange. From the ages of five and fifteen seems to suggest the children are from only two age groups, 5 years and 15 years.

I would recommend this instead:

The children are from the age of five to fifteen.

Your second sentence is perfectly fine.

Of your two examples, the second is better.

A more idiomatic version of the first might be "The children's ages range from five to fifteen".
