Children use the ‘Passport to Learning’ to collect credits from validated ‘Learning Destinations’. The Learning Destinations will stamp or sign the Passport to Learning once the activity has been completed. Every hour of learning the children do at the Learning Destination is credited in their Passport to Learning. Once they attain 30 hours they will be awarded their first certificate; the Bronze award. If the children collect more hours they will achieve more certificates. More information can be found on the National Children's University™ website.
