Whether you’re a school, a parent, activity provider or just keen to support us, there are many ways to get involved with Children’s University.
Parents and children
Children's University is currently running in over 1,000 schools across 66 local authority areas in England. Children typically sign up to Children's University through their schools.
There are so many reasons to get your school involved in Children’s University. The Education Endowment Foundation has Children’s University listed as a promising project; our focus on activities beyond the classroom is a great fit for Ofsted’s new focus on character development; and our digital platform, Children’s University Online, can support your school with skills development and reporting against the Gatsby Benchmarks.
Children's University works closely with all kinds of learning providers and activity leaders to offer children the widest variety of opportunities. In order to offer a consistent quality of activities we undertake a quality assurance process to validate these opportunities to confirm they meet certain standards.
Become a Children's University
Children’s University is a national movement that is co-ordinated across the country by partner organisations.
