All of our classes focus on physical development (gross-motor and fine-motor skills), cognitive development (thoughts, reasoning, imagination, problem solving and decision-making), and social-emotional development (friendship, trust, bonding, confidence, pride and humour). This is evident in our practices, games and excellent coaching throughout our programme.
Our aim is to not only develop technical football skills but to make sure every class promotes positive experiences that creates well-rounded children who are confident, full of self-worth and think outside the box.
“Experience is the chief architect of the Brain” (Perry, 2002)
Physical Development occurs through the direct avenue of football activities and games. We focus on children’s gross-motor development (running, skipping, jumping, hopping) and fine-motor development (small touches, skills, turns, balance and co-ordination). Both forms of physical development are interlinked and will be evident in all classes.
Cognitive Development is evident in our classes through their imagination (going on the Adventure). We all know a child’s imagination is a powerful tool and we let it loose in our adventure classes where problem-solving and decision making occur through the different adventure scenarios.
Social-Emotional Development in our classes foster an environment of positivity which allows confidence, trust and pride to grow. It creates a sense of self-worth and self-esteem which helps to develop positive relationships. This sense of self-worth and confidence can be transferable and improve other aspects of the child’s life including interacting with peers in nursery and positive behaviour.
