How to Join

If your child attends a school who is already part of Children’s University then it is good news! They can get started today.

All of our schools are now using CU Online (our new digital platform that’s a fun, safe and secure online space for participants to record what they’re doing} and your child can be allocated with a username and password to upload any activities that they have completed and see all the activities that are available at school as well as in both your local area and across the country.

Speak to your school if you are not sure how to get started.
