Cardiff Mumpreneur scoops Gold

Local Mumpreneur, Annie Harding has just scooped Gold Accreditation from the Children’s Activities Association (CAA).

Annie, runs the Cardiff Kidslingo franchise delivering fun & interactive French and Spanish classes to children and its 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.

The focus of the classes is all about learning languages through songs, actions, role play & stories. Annie and her team run a range of French and Spanish classes in Rhiwbina Memorial Hall, Canolfan Beulah and Rhiwbina Primary suitable for children from 18 months to 11 years. The aim of her business is simple – is to inspire young children to love languages. Many research studies show that learning a language at a very young age boosts cognitive development.

 “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 like Annie do every day with young kids.” Anna Neville, Kidslingo Ltd CEO & Founder.

 “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!”

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:

“Parents look for the CAA logo when choosing a children’s activity, so Kidslingo can now showcase this achievement with pride.”
