We're delighted to be organising the very first regional meet up of the Children's Activities Association (CAA) - and that it's happening right here in the north east!
This first meeting is open to all members of the CAA as a great opportunity to network, chat to other providers and collaborate, gain advice and support and also for us to gain some feedback from you about CAA membership and how we can work together to raise awareness of the CAA amongst parents - as of course that's what it's all about! We'd also love to welcome along children's activity providers who are interested in finding out more about the CAA and how joining up could benefit their business! We all know that running any type of business can be isolating at times and so coming together with other people working in our industry is invaluable!
The meeting will be hosted by Fiona Simpson and George Bentley, CAA Board members and Mark Rasche of Sport and Activity Professionals and fellow board member will also be there.
What is the CAA?
The CAA was established by some of the leading providers of children’s activities - with the ultimate aim of providing parents with peace of mind and to help raise standards in the children’s activity industry. Activity providers who are members of the Children’s Activities Association have been independently checked to make sure that they have everything in place to keep our little ones safe – that they have the correct safeguarding checks and training, that all of their policies and procedures are in place and that they have first aid provision and insurance in case an accident occurs. This means that if a parents chooses a club or class which is a member of the CAA then they can do so with peace of mind, knowing that those very important safeguards are in place.
Activity providers who are members of the CAA can proudly display a membership badge to show parents, and they can choose to go through an accreditation process to become fully accredited members too!
The number of activity providers joining the CAA is growing each month, and between us we now represent over 2.5 million babies children enjoying safe and fun activities each week!
So come along on the 5th March for coffee, chat, advice, networking and a chance to make some valuable connections - limited spaces so please book your free ticket to confirm your place!
Look forward to meeting you all then
Fiona and George
