KalliKids Announces UK Best Award Winners
The 2015 winners have been named in the Annual KalliKids UK Best Awards.
Hailed as “inspirational” by lead judge and former Olympian, Roger Black, the UK Best Awards recognise the innovation and hard work of providers of family and children services in Britain.
Voting for the 18 categories in the awards began online back in June. The three providers with the most votes were then shortlisted in September.
It was then over to a panel of independent judges to select the overall winners in each category.
Horsham based Woods For Learning was selected as Overall Provider as well Best Time Out or Holiday Club category.
Gary Marlow, spokesperson for the company, said: “To win KalliKids Best Holiday Club in the UK was an extreme honour for us, especially as we have only been going a short while, but then to find out we won Overall Best Provider in the UK was unbelievable.
“There were some great finalists and we would like to congratulate all the other providers as I know what lengths they go to in order to ensure children and families get the very best.
“At Woods For Learning, our motto is ‘take life back to nature, explore, discover, play, learn – Live’. We now have recognition. This will enable us to expand the work we do. A big thank you to KalliKids.”
KalliKids is the UK’s stamp tick of approval and accreditation service for children’s activities and services.
To earn accreditation KalliKids’ providers have to be referenced and recommended by families and they have to provide proof of qualifications, training and other documentation.
