We’re very proud of the awards we’ve won

We always wanted to stand out as the trailblazer for a new era of childcare – and it seems that we do. Kids Allowed has been recognised by many childcare sector and business awards for the high standards that we set, as you can see here.

Our entire team works very hard to put our principles and approach on the map, and we’d like to thank everyone for their support, commitment and enthusiasm.

For us, it means we approach each day with extra pride. For you, it simply means we’re as good as our word.
