STAART ART and Children’s University
I am delighted to share with you all that STAART is now a
validated learning provider for the national charity Children’s University as a
result of the STAART ART competition. If you are aware of any children (up to
14) who are taking part in any of the Children’s Universities, this activity
equates to an hour of creativity and awarded with a stamp.
Children’s University is a national charity that encourages and rewards children’s participation in learning activities beyond the classroom. Children collect stamps in a passport for each activity they take part in. These activities can include after-school clubs, those organised in public museums, libraries, and also new and exciting activities in outdoor environments.
On a personal note, my niece attended the University of Kent Children’s University and loved the activities. She graduated with an Arts degree last summer, and was the first person in her family to go to university – outreach work at its best!
