Andrew Norton created Energy Kidz in 2009 when he noticed there was a lack of quality wraparound childcare and sports clubs for families and schools to access. As Energy Kidz grew he recognised that to ensure Energy Kidz was always offering the best service he needed to invest in developing and training new and existing staff.
This led to the creation of Reach4Skills who, as well as continuing to train in-house, now offer a wide range of training opportunities, both accredited and workshop based, to external providers.
Andrew also decided to move the sports side of the business to a new company Achieve Sports who, whilst still delivering sports in schools and running holiday sports clubs, also organise and run adult sports leagues.
All three companies are now part of the Curvepoint Group which is solely owned by Andrew to offer the distinct strands of childcare, training and sport.
Andrew is always happy to hear from any customer or client of The CurvePoint Group and can be reach via [email protected]
