Welcome to London South East Children’s University, part of the national Children’s University Foundation, where children are recognised and celebrated for their enquiring minds and enthusiastic engagement in different learning activities.
The aim of our Children’s University is to encourage and support children aged 5 – 14 to become involved in the many and varied educational experiences that are available in all aspects of their lives which extends and complements their learning beyond the school environment.
First graduates of Bromley Children’s University celebrate their success
Back in 2016, over 40 Bromley schoolchildren were presented with awards by best-selling author, Martina Cole in a special ‘graduation’ ceremony at London South East Colleges. Click here to find out more.
There are many rich opportunities for children to extend their knowledge and gain new skills; out of schools clubs, visits to parks, museums, the library, places of interest and even completing challenging on line activities. Participation in the Children’s University supports and nurtures independent and confident learners, generates aspirations for their future and enables a lifelong journey of discovery and exploration.
Children learn best when they are planning and enjoying the experiences they participate in. Children involved with the scheme have their own passport and for every hour completed in a validated Learning Destination, the children gain a stamp. The gathering of these stamps encourages the children to continue and widen their pursuits and, when the required number of stamps are collected, leads to a graduation ceremony, mirroring adult university life, and where their achievement is celebrated and shared with their family.
