Kids 1st place with Little Dribblers

Kids 1st is proud to announce that we are sponsoring the Foundation of Light’s ground-breaking ‘Little Dribblers’ programme for the 2015-16 season.

Little Dribblers is a fun introduction to football suitable for youngsters from 18 months to 5 years, launched by Foundation of Light in 2010.

Mapped to the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum, Little Dribblers ensures youngsters develop interpersonal skills and more as well as having fun with a football, and provides a secure foundation for all children for good progress through school and life.

It also has links to Sunderland AFC’s Academy of Light with over 20 former Little Dribblers progressing to Academy-based training sessions since the programme’s launch.

Allison Winship, Head of Childcare at Kids 1st commented: “The are a lot of similarities between Kids 1st Nurseries and the Foundation of Light; we’re both pioneers dedicated not just to becoming the best in our field but also to giving children the best possible start in life.”

“We were impressed by the Little Dribblers programme’s adherence to the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum, something that we follow very closely to help children in our nurseries prepare for school and future success.”

Richard Routledge, Business Development Manager at Foundation of Light added, “We’re very proud to announce Kids 1st as a sponsor for Little Dribblers. As an organisation they mirror our commitment to helping youngsters realise their potential and this sponsorship will help us reach even more young people.”
