The Ceremony

We also felt it was important to raise the profile of these types of business and help them achieve all they want to achieve - so the Businesses for Children Awards were born!

A little bit about us...

"In my day there just wasn't that much out there for children, now there are sensory experiences, language lessons, baby yoga, baby music lessons, toddler dance lessons, gymnastics, after school clubs, wonderful nurseries with forest schools and farms, and so much more."

The statement above was said to me after my two-year-old son stood in front of his grandma and sang heads, shoulders, knees and toes in Spanish after just one term at Lingotot. I know I am lucky - I know they are lucky, and the businessmen and women that provide these sorts of opportunities should know what a wonderful job they are doing.

That is what the BCAs are all about!
