Kent Children's University

We are excited to announce that both The Beaney and Canterbury Roman Museum are now approved “Restricted Learning Destinations” for Kent Children’s UniversityTM!

This means that we are authorised to issue Learning Credits in the children’s Passports to Learning for activities undertaken at our Museums and Galleries. 

We are so proud of this partnership, as the Validation process shows that our methods for inspiring and educating children and young people meets the Quality Assurance process of National Children’s UniversityTM Trust. 

What is Kent Children’s UniversityTM?
Kent Children’s UniversityTM (KCU) is part of an international charity that provides 5 to 14-year olds with access to exciting and innovative CU Learning Activities and experiences outside the normal school day. They reward children’s participation in voluntary learning activities that will develop their skills and raise aspirations for the future. 

How does CU work?
The Children’s University (CU) is able to recognise and reward children for all the additional learning they participate in voluntarily outside normal school hours. Once registered through a school or direct through the local CU, children can earn Learning Credits in a variety of ways including participating in activities held at “Public Learning Destinations.” Children are provided with a Passport to Learning for them to collect Credits as evidence of their learning. 

Once children achieve a fixed number of Learning Credits, they will have the opportunity to have their successes celebrated at a very special Graduation Ceremony at either Canterbury Christ Church University, The University of Greenwich (Medway Campus) or The University of Kent. 

For more information visit the Kent Children’s UniversityTM website or email

Start collecting Credits by booking onto one of our educational workshops or simply drop in to purchase our family activities! Visit our Information Desks for more details.

We look forward to welcoming even more little learners to our museums!
