Last week was a landmark week for Little Kickers because we picked up our first award from the wider football fraternity, a Football Business award for Best Business Serving Football. Until this moment Little Kicker’s accolades had primarily come from the franchise and the wider business community, including telling nods to our children’s education and growing sustainability credentials.
According to Little Kickers founder, Christine Kelly, ‘As anyone who knows anything about Little Kickers will appreciate, we’re not a pre-school talent academy in disguise, but a pioneering fun-based/shared learning football programme for pre-school children that’s been treading the boards since 2002 and enjoys a reach that now extends to 33 different countries activating some 70,000+ children a week.
Our simple, single-minded mission goal from Day 1 has been to create a range of involving and evolving activity-based initiatives for inquisitive pre-schoolers to stimulate young minds and foster a long-lasting appreciation of sports-based activities. That said, football is the medium by which we communicate our vision, so to be recognised by Football Business is quite simply beyond the dreams of a blossoming business that first opened its doors back in Clapham some 19 years ago.’
