We are absolutely delighted to start the year on a high note! The CAA (Children's Activities Association) has awarded us Gold accreditation - and we are the first Community Interest Company in the UK to achieve this!

In Detail

The staff of Black Country community interest company (CIC) Complete Kidz are celebrating after gaining Gold CAA accreditation – becoming the first CIC in the UK to achieve this important accreditation.

The CAA (Children’s Activities Association) is the first not-for-profit, industry-led organisation to set and raise standards in all organised children’s activities across the United Kingdom. The CAA offers parents a simple way to make informed decisions when choosing from the wealth of children’s activities out there. Just by asking whether the provider is a CAA member, a parent or carer can get peace of mind regarding important issues such as insurance, health and safety, criminal record checks, training, qualifications and much more. Unsurprisingly therefore, already over 200,000 children across the UK attend a CAA member activity every week.

Dr Amanda Gummer PhD, Founder of Fundamentally Children the official independent accrediting organisation for the CAA, said “Complete Kidz is an outstanding CIC providing a huge range of children’s care and activities at the very highest level. Their excellent systems and processes truly deserve Gold accreditation and we are delighted that they are the first CIC to achieve our highest standard”.

Complete Kidz is a leading CIC, providing a wide range of affordable physical activity, sports coaching and educational services to improve the health and well-being of all age groups. Their goal is to raise the understanding of healthy eating and exercise amongst children and their parents, as well as offering economical high quality childcare.

Jo Haydon, Chief Executive of Complete Kidz, said “we are thrilled to have our professional approach to children’s activities recognised by the CAA. Our systematic methods provide a solid foundation for us to deliver fun, exciting activities for children of all ages. Parents can be confident that their children are being cared for and having a great time in a secure environment.”

The mission of Complete Kidz is to inspire and develop health and education through innovative and imaginative activities involving sport, music, drama and art. They accomplish this through engaging children and their parents and encouraging them to adopt a healthy lifestyle. Their activities are provided in a safe environment, where the participants enjoy themselves and achieve meaningful personal outcomes.
