The Hopping Down in Kent website is the result of collaboration between the Museum of Kent Life, Cobtree and the South East Museums, Libraries and Archives Council (SEMLAC), in consultation with local schools and other potential users of the Museum. It has been developed and maintained through SEMLAC's Kent eLearning initiative with funding from the Department for Education and Skills (DfES) under phase 2 of the Museums and Galleries Education Programme(2003/4), with additional funding and advice from the South East Grid for Learning (SEGfL).
