How can our children join Kent Children's University?

Please note: This Subscription is only applicable for families living in Kent, Medway or East Sussex.


We are delighted to hear that you are considering signing your children up to be part of Kent Children's University (KCU).

KCU is continuing to evolve and we are now able to accept sign up to the scheme, even if your child's school is not involved or you are Electively Home Educating.

There are two ways you can get involved with KCU:

  1. If your child is schooled, let us know which school they attend.  We can liaise with the school to see whether they would like to be part of KCU .  You can email your school details to kcu@kent.gov.uk
  2. If your child's school is not part of KCU or your child is Electively Home Educated, you can subscribe to the Family Membership model.  You can find details of this below.
