When we got back from holiday our Passport to Learning was waiting for us – I’m not sure which one of us is more excited about it!
This is just the kind of thing I would have loved doing as a child so I’m so pleased that my eldest is excited about getting started.
The passport and summer challenges are all part of the Kent Children’s University aim to improve outcomes for children and young people through creative and innovative activities.
They have partnered up with organisations and businesses across the county (and further afield through the different Children’s Universities) to encourage children to expand their horizons.
For each summer challenge you complete, or activity at a recognised venue, you receive a number of credits that go towards different levels of awards.
We also downloaded the app which includes a map so you can see what you can do nearby to earn credits (search for Children’s University ePassport).
In the Canterbury area alone there are at least 17, including St Augustine’s Abbey, the Canterbury Treasure Hunt (didn’t know this existed!), Pets at Home workshops and Espression Interactive Arts Cafe.
If you’d like more information on joining the Kent Children’s University, you’ll find all the details here.
Best be off…challenges and activities to plan!
