Children’s University

Dis­cov­er a world of adven­ture and learn­ing with Chil­dren’s Uni­ver­si­ty and nation­al parks.

We are thrilled to announce our part­ner­ship with Chil­dren’s Uni­ver­si­ty, a fan­tas­tic ini­tia­tive designed to inspire and encour­age chil­dren aged 5 to 14 years old to explore, learn, and grow through a wide range of activ­i­ties and expe­ri­ences. Run by the Uni­ver­si­ty of Ade­laide, South Aus­tralian schools par­tic­i­pate in Chil­dren’s Uni­ver­si­ty to offer their stu­dents unique and engag­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties to expand their knowl­edge and spark their curiosity.

At the heart of this part­ner­ship lies the recog­ni­tion of the immense val­ue that nation­al parks bring to edu­ca­tion. Our nation­al parks, gar­dens, and her­itage sites are trea­sure troves of nat­ur­al won­ders, cul­tur­al her­itage, and breath­tak­ing land­scapes that pro­vide the per­fect envi­ron­ment for hands-on learn­ing and unfor­get­table expe­ri­ences. As part of this col­lab­o­ra­tion, these beau­ti­ful loca­tions now serve as learn­ing des­ti­na­tions in the Chil­dren’s Uni­ver­si­ty Pass­port to Learn­ing Program.

Schools must first become a mem­ber of Chil­dren’s Uni­ver­si­ty to par­tic­i­pate in the pro­gram. Once enrolled, stu­dents can join as par­tic­i­pants through their school. Time-stamps can be earned for vis­it­ing nation­al parks, com­plet­ing self-guid­ed activ­i­ty sheets, and par­tic­i­pat­ing in a Park of the Month event. Children’s Uni­ver­si­ty activ­i­ty sheets for earn­ing time-stamps can be down­loaded through the Children’s Uni­ver­si­ty stu­dent por­tal (login required).
