The National Children's University

Members of the increasing Children's Universities throughout the country

Today spent an interesting morning learning more about the National Children's University and in particular the Shropshire branch of the newly created learning opportunity for children. As a recent member, I am looking forward to becoming involved and shall be posting about  my experiences as an educational provider.

The Children's University is a national organisation offering children aged 7-14 an exciting and innovative programme of high quality learning opportunities outside school hours, with a focus on rewarding participation, raising aspirations and encouraging engagement with learning. Children's University provision is delivered outside school hours, at weekends and in the holidays.

Its nice to read about organisations that help children learn and grow.

Carole Anne Carr said...

Yes, Rachna, our county branch is just being set up, but hopefully it will really progress and help the children a great deal.

Sue Hyams said...

Sounds great. I look forward to hearing more about it.

Carole Anne Carr said...

Thanks, Sue, I do hope it takes off in Shropshire as it has in other counties.

I'm so in awe over the many great programs the UK offer their children. We could certainly learn something from the British educational system. Ours is losing ground. Teachers went on strike, but that's a story for another day. Great news, Carole.

A program that will enrich a child's life and learning has to be a marvelous experience. Looking forward to learning more about your involvement.

That is exciting. I wonder if the united states has anything similar. Certainly, many children need more opportunities and stimulation than a traditional government education can provide them.

Carole Anne Carr said...

I'm not sure how this will develop, Susan, but will just have to wait and see.

Carole Anne Carr said...

I mentioned this to my friend in Atlanta, Sandra,
and she said that there is a similar programme but only for those who can afford it.

Carole Anne Carr said...

We have our problems, too, Joylene, when I visit schools and see work set that is failing the children I am in despair.

Elizabeth Varadan aka Mrs. Seraphina said...

Speaking as a former teacher in love with language and reading, this sounds like a wonderful organization. How nice to be involved in it!

Carole Anne Carr said...

Thank you Elizabeth, it is just in the early stages of being set up in Shropshire, here's hoping it is a success.
