Due to the nature of our classes that are well known for being creative, educational and most of all fun, there was an ever increasing call for us to run our classes within nurseries and schools.We are a registered AQA Training centre & have developed a programme specifically built for nurseries and schools to be rolled out across the country. Following a successful launch, Little Strikers proudly run sessions up and down the country and continue to grow as more and more nursery owners and school teachers see the benefit our classes are having on the children nationwide.
Children's physical development is a key attribute of our sessions. Not only do we make them aware of, and more confident in, their own abilities, we also help them to develop their balance, awareness, motor skills and other physical characteristics amongst many others.
The children are encouraged to play games and use their imaginations,in a fun, safe environment. Children learn most effectively through active play, proven in numerous studies (Fromberg & Gullo 1992, Frost 1992, Rogers & Sawyer 1988). Our programme has been developed by professionals with an ethos on engaging children through fun and creative play, it also promotes the development of a wide range of early learning skills.
Using techniques that have been developed by us and our Strikers coaches, the children are challenged to use various parts of their body to control the ball. Not only does this process help them learn body parts, but it also makes them aware of each specific body parts' capabilities, movement and limitations.
The vast majority of our games have been specifically designed to complement the learning and development requirements as outlined in the English Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework
We ensure that each child will be learning skills, acquiring new knowledge and demonstrating their understanding through areas of learning and development as set out by the EYFS framework.
