The Development of the Footytotz™ Educational Play Programme

Education is one of the most important part of a Child’s development. During their Early years its essential that children learn about the world they live in and just as important is learning about healthy living and well being. Together with Early Years professionals, Charles Orr, our Operations Director, a member of one of the UK’s top North West Premier League football academies, who has been involved in youth football for over 21 years and Shirley Ridgway, our Marketing and Franchise Director, who began her passion and involvement over 22 years ago as a football parent developed a programme which would help families achieve this.

F.A. qualified experienced coaches and the original founders of the Footy4kidz™ soccer school 15 years ago , Charles and Shirley have used their skills, experience and knowledge to deliver to you a programme providing education and healthy development for young children aged 18 months and upwards.

About our EDUCATIONAL sessions

Footytotz™ delivers a structured, early-years play programme for children aged 18 months to five years old. Designed to develop children’s motor skills of balance, co-ordination and agility, the Footytotz™ programme is a proven way of developing a child’s self confidence and independence.
And what’s more Footytotz™ is lots of fun.

The Footytotz™ sessions are unique and are specially designed to be based around educational stories linked to the Early Years Curriculum. Because each weekly session has a different theme, the children are kept focused throughout the sessions and listening skills are greatly improved.

Each session involves setting up an obstacle course that represents the topic or story of the day. This will include a warm up game, a main game and a penalty shoot-out, with each part of the session being linked to that topic. The session will end with a cool down and questions and answers about the story the children have taken part in. Finally, the children receive a ‘well done’ sticker for their efforts. This is then recorded in their personal achievement booklet.
