Kidslingo win at first ever Welsh national children’s awards ceremony

January 19, 2020

The evening of Friday 17th January saw the inaugural ceremony of the Wales Children’s Activities and Services Awards at The Village Hotel, Swansea. Over 140 guests gathered for a glamorous black-tie event to see who would be crowned the winners of these prestigious awards. The awards also supported the charity Dreams & Wishes, who make wishes come true for seriously ill children and their families.

The winners and runners up of the 11 award categories were chosen from a wealth of entries by an independent panel of judges who are experts in their field.

Kidslingo Cardiff, run by Annie Harding, was crowned WINNER in the highly competitive category of Franchise of the Year, sponsored by Club Hub. Annie’s franchise, that teaches French and Spanish to young children in Cardiff, celebrates its 6th birthday this month. Kidslingo Cardiff brings the fun and unique Kidslingo pedagogy to over 300 pupils in 14 schools across Cardiff every single week, even delivering some French classes via the Welsh medium.

Annie said “I’m overwhelmed by this win and would like to thank all of the organisers and judges. At Kidslingo, we aim to inspire children to love languages and develop a skill for life – I’m so proud to be recognised for all the hard work.”

“Annie was Kidslingo’s first ever franchisee and is a huge credit to the Kidslingo business. Her hard work, dedication and passion for inspiring young children to learn languages is second to none. Clearly her customers adore her classes and she truly deserves the title of Franchise of the Year. She is an amazing teacher and an inspiring businesswoman.” Anna Neville, Kidslingo CEO.

This award follows on from a series of wins in 2019, including being voted as the UK’s Most Loved Creative & Academic Activity in the What’s On Awards, and is Kidslingo’s 8th award win in a 4 month period.

Kidslingo is a language franchise that runs children’s French classes and children’s Spanish classes to more than 15,000 babies, toddlers and primary school kids through a national network of over 120 franchisees and tutors across the UK. Its innovative approach is based on the science of learning through play, and uses a clever mix of music, games, Makaton, role-play, drama and storytelling.
