What is Children's University?
The Children's University believes that children can and do
learn anywhere, when doing all sorts of activities, and that
children learn best when they decide what they want to
learn, when and where, and most importantly, have FUN whilst
We are one of a growing number of Children's Universities around the
country, each working to provide children aged 5-14 years with
exciting experiences and innovative learning activities outside of
the normal school day.
Exciting learning experiences outside school hours
The whole idea behind the Children's University is to encourage
children to develop new interests and join in new activities, and
then celebrate and reward their achievements.
Every activity and venue offered through the Children's
University has been checked and validated to make sure it provides
the highest quality learning experience. Activities and venues are
called 'Learning Destinations'.
Your 'Passport to Learning'!
Every child taking part in the Children's University has their
own special 'Passport to Learning' which they use to collect
activity stamps each time an event or venue is attended, or when a
learning activity is undertaken.
Learning doesn't just take place in the classroom. Children
learn new things in all sorts of places: at museums, on nature
walks, by playing sports and music, and much more besides.
Issued with a Passport to Learning, children can travel around
London and the UK with their Passport to Learning, collecting
stamps in recognition of their learning as they go. After all -
travel is what a Passport is for!
