Kidslingo is extremely proud to announce they have just achieved Gold accreditation from the Children’s Activities Association (CAA). They are the only kids’ language company to achieve this.
Having achieved Gold CAA accreditation means that Kidslingo has been independently verified as having met or exceeded all the necessary elements of the CAA Code of Practice.
Anna Neville, Kidslingo Ltd CEO & Founder, said:
"We are extremely excited & proud to achieve Gold accreditation and be recognised for our achievements by an expert organisation. It is indicative of the fantastic work that our franchisees do every day with young kids."
Assessed by Dr Amanda Gummer PhD, one of the UK’s leading experts in child development and Founder of Fundamentally Children, the CAA’s official independent accrediting organisation, this accomplishment offers parents peace of mind when selecting an activity from the myriad of providers out there.
Dr Gummer said:
"I was impressed with the holistic development opportunities within the sessions. The children were active, with kinaesthetic learning being a particularly strong feature. I was very impressed and didn’t realise language learning could be so much fun!"
Set-up by leading industry experts in 2015, the establishment of the CAA (a Community Interest Company) has revolutionised the children’s activities sector. Over 200,000 children a week now attend a CAA member activity and it is a truly fantastic endorsement for Kidslingo to be part of this ground-breaking national initiative. Their commitment to achieving Gold shows the dedication of Kidslingo to demonstrate to their industry peers and their franchisees that they excel at what they do as well as giving parents, schools & nurseries the reassurance they deserve when selecting the best classes for little ones.
As one parent said regarding the CAA:
"With so many clubs and classes to choose from it's so hard to know which are the best and what I should be asking when I leave my children in the care of a class leader. In the past I just wrongly assumed kids' activities must have to be regulated. Knowing that the CAA has asked those important questions to help keep my child safe is fantastic - so now I just look for their logo!"
Mike Dodd, Chairman of the CAA said:
"The CAA is delighted to welcome Kidslingo as a Gold accredited member, joining the many providers keen to celebrate excellence within this thriving industry and giving parents a bench-mark for all organised children's activities. This accolade means they have proven that their activity meets the CAA high standards across all areas and they now join the elite ranks as a fully Accredited CAA Member. Parents look for the CAA logo when choosing a children’s activity, so Kidslingo can now showcase this achievement with pride."
Head Office has been extremely supportive and offers a comprehensive training programme. Having all the materials and a ‘secret’ Facebook group, has really helped me get started with my exciting new family-friendly career.Angela

I was still breastfeeding when I did my training so it was great to be able to bring my son along with me. How many companies would do that for you?Dawn
