"The Progressive Preschool Awards 2015 were without doubt the most exciting yet, with record entry levels, a hotly-debated judging process, and a total sell-out audience for the awards ceremony," commented Rob Willis, publisher of Progressive Preschool magazine.

"It's a real honour to be able to put together a true celebration of all aspects of the preschool sector, congratulating and recognising the very best of product, marketing, and retail in this very special industry," he continued. “We would like to thank everyone involved in success of these awards, which reflect the creativity, passion and dynamism within the preschool market."

The Progressive Preschool Awards comprise retail categories, product categories and special awards for marketing, wholesaling and outstanding achievement. The nomination, voting and judging process is tailored to the various categories, ensuring that the utmost integrity is maintained to the highest level.
