About our 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.


Child Safety

Footytotz™ acknowledges its responsibility to safeguard the welfare of every child who has been entrusted to its care and is committed to working to provide a safe environment for all members. A child or young person is anyone under the age of eighteen, engaged in any sporting activity. We subscribe to the Football Association's child protection and best practice policy and procedures and endorse and adopt the policy statement contained in that document.
