Learning Destinations are an essential part of the Children's University Australasia program.
What are Learning Destinations?
They are locations that provide the unique and engaging experiences where children can 'travel' outside of school hours. All Learning Destinations provide activities that children can choose to do, either independently or with their family:
- Public Learning Destinations are places outside the school grounds and can include museums, galleries, sports clubs and libraries.
- Restricted Learning Destinations are the activities which happen on school grounds outside lesson time.
- Registered Learning Destination activities are validated by CU Adelaide staff to ensure a superior experience where a student can receive a stamp in their Passport to Learning.
Learning Destinations are continuously developing new activities. The best way to access current information and events is referring to our Facebook page, and the South Australian Learning Destination page.
What activities are currently available?
The Children’s University Australasia website provides a snapshot of the types of Learning Destinations on offer but you can also follow us on Facebook for more information on what’s happening within our learning community network.
Are you interested in becoming a Learning Destination?
Do you already currently provide activities for 5-18 year olds and would like to collaborate with larger networks and expand your community profile? Children's University Adelaide creates an opportunity to engage students and promote your exciting opportunities.
Validated Learning Destinations are responsible for delivering quality experiences for children outside of school hours that are fun, engaging, and meet the Children's University Adelaide validation framework. Validation is the initial process in becoming a Learning Destination as part of Children's University Adelaide. Many of the activities validated through Children’s University are already existing activities that easily met the criteria for validation and had clear learning outcomes.
All Learning Destinations are expected to operate to their statutory requirements and responsibilities in the areas of Health and Safety, Public Liability and Child Safe Environments.
Why become a Learning Destination?
Becoming a Learning Destination offers the opportunity to connect your passion to a young audience and is a powerful way to engage in the community and contribute to the success and achievement of young people.
