Trail : home : Children's University
A Passport To Learning has been created, in which 7 to 14 year old children - and 5 and 6 year olds with grown-ups - collect 'stamps' and hours of accredited learning. This contributes to the award of a certificate, encouraging them to access Children's University provision and a wide range of other worthwhile out-of-school-hours learning opportunities.
Padiham Green Children’s University Passports will be available for £1.50. We are subsidizing this charge (as they cost £3 each) simply because we think this is so important and it gives your child such a brilliant wider learning advantage that we are prepared to do this for you. It does mean making a commitment from you and that you will value it. Your whole family will benefit too by engaging in a variety of interesting activities to get your Children’s University Stamp. Some children will definitely love this and some will graduate and we’ll really celebrate that so please be one of those families that get involved from the start and build your child’s cultural capital.
Learning Destinations are places and organisations to which children can 'travel' with their Passport To Learning. They provide high quality learning activities and experiences with a 'wow' factor and have passed the Children's University's own quality assurance process (Planning for Learning). A Learning Destination can range from a museum to a farm or from an airport to a university as long as the learning activity connects with Children's University learning, which is in turn linked to actual university course provision (as exemplified by UCAS). Partners as diverse as the Woodland Trust, English Heritage, and B & Q offer treasure trails and history walks, measuring, calculating, designing and making, playing an instrument, photography, sports and first aid, and much much more.
