Rachael said: "‘We are absolutely thrilled to have been nominated for these awards. As a brand that was born during lockdown, we never imagined to have grown to the size we currently have and at such an incredible pace.

"At Baby Gaga we pride ourselves on breaking the mould.

"We aren’t your traditional baby class and we couldn’t be more proud of that!

"We have unique, imaginative, exciting themes and provide a completely immersive experience in all of our sessions.

"Our tutors are all professional performers and highly trained tutors in performing arts but most of all, our tutors are real people who truly care about the importance of building confidence, communication skills and creating personal connections between our babies and their care giver.

"We are proud to welcome an incredible 1,000 babies a week through our doors at both our Egerton and Ramsbottom centres."

Parents and carers have rushed to nominate after the pandemic to say a big thank you to activity providers, describing nominees as "always going above & beyond", "a ray of sunshine”, “amazing", "inspirational” and "shining stars".

Event Director for What’s On 4 Kids Suzanne Morris said: "Once again we are beyond proud to be celebrating these exceptional nominees after such an unprecedented two years when their support and commitment to young families quite simply changed children's lives.

"We’d encourage everyone to vote, vote, vote to make sure their favourite is in with a chance to be at the prestigious Awards event in the Autumn where we’ll be celebrating in style.

"Thank you to our headline sponsor Morton Michel, voting sponsor beecard and all our supporters who help us to showcase this fantastic sector and these amazing individuals and businesses."
