Learning Destinations are places, clubs and organisations that provide high quality learning opportunities and activities to students.

Children’s University Australasia and Africa (IO) (Children’s University) members can ‘travel’ with their Passport to Learning to engage in learning activities and experiences – or Learning Destinations – with a ‘wow’ factor.

There are two types of Learning Destinations: Public Learning Destinations and Restricted Learning Destinations. A Public Learning Destination is one that can be accessed by any passport holder or member of the public, such as a museum or library. Restricted Learning Destinations are for a predetermined Children’s University audience and are typically school-based clubs.

We are so proud to offer Children’s University members an extensive range of unique and appealing Learning Destinations across Australia and New Zealand.

All organisations seeking to become Learning Destinations must undertake our quality assurance process, known as Planning for Learning, to ensure consistency in the quality of learning activities.

Learning Destinations are encouraged to provide both physical and virtual activities for Children’s University members. Partnering with Children’s University provides an opportunity to promote your activities to the Children’s University network both nationally and internationally.
