The Children’s University concept is relatively simple: it offers superior educational experiences for children outside of school learning activities and recognises their achievements through the award of formal Certificates. The model leverages local educational and learning activity providers (including sports clubs, museums, galleries etc.) and has a strong emphasis on experience as a significant learning tool, acknowledging the value of the range of learning experiences and environments in which children engage. In short Children’s University gives young people the opportunity to enjoy taking part in and fun, exciting and innovative experiences and gain recognition for their involvement.
In 2015 over 60 students from Crafers Primary School participated in the program and graduated at Bonython Hall. Here is a link to further information http://childrensuniversity.com.au/
