Ensuring high standards in safety, quality, delivery, and programme development is fundamental to The Creation Station Ltd. Its commitment to ensuring high standards are maintained, has gained it the prestigious Gold accreditation standard in the Children's Activity Association.
As the leading children's arts and crafts creative activity company, The Creation Station delivers all its experiences to a professional code of conduct.
Sarah Cressall, Founder, and Managing Director of The Creation Station, states:
"Our high standards are essential to provide children with fun, safe, and enjoyable opportunities to explore, discover and develop and to give parents peace of mind for their child."
To ensure standards are met and maintained, Creation Station franchise owners undertake a five-day training course, covering operational, marketing and business modules including practical hands-on experience of running the activities, health and safety, customer care, marketing, and sales.
Feedback and reviews take place weekly with updates being incorporated when required. This ensures any changes or new information can be quickly acted upon and communicated to the team via email, video, or phone calls.
Since 2002, over 250,000 children and families have been involved in a Creation Station arts and crafts activity. Activities have been rated five stars on Trustpilot and in an independent franchise satisfaction survey, The Creation Station franchise was rated five stars.
The Children's Activity Association gives parents a benchmark for all organised children's activities by establishing and improving consistent standards and accreditation.
To achieve Gold accreditation membership, companies must complete five accreditation modules covering compliance, training, customer service, programme, and delivery. All policies are checked (including evidence) by the independent accrediting organisation, Fundamentally Children led by Dr Amanda Gummer PhD. This is a significant achievement and the only independent accreditation for children's activities in the UK.
