Billy’s Buddies has won Best National Preschooler Activity in the 2019 What’s On 4 Kids Awards – Recognising Excellence in Australian Kids Activity Industry.
The What’s On 4 Kids Awards is Australia’s only industry event for the kids activity, family entertainment and party businesses.
The demand for children’s activities continues to grow steadily, making the children’s activity and party industry one of the fastest growing sectors of the economy.
Billy Slater, NRL superstar and the brains behind Billy’s Buddies, started the program in Brisbane in January 2016 and has seen more than 8000 children participate across Brisbane, the Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast and his hometown of Cairns.
Billy Slater says, “It’s such a fantastic achievement. I started the program to provide children with the opportunity to get outside and be active. We are a non-contact program, with the fundamentals of movement at heart – it’s also a non-competitive program and more about teaching and role modelling a healthy and active lifestyle.
“To be just three years old and win a national award is fantastic – I’m very proud of the whole team”, Slater adds.
