‘Little Cricket’ Pre-School Children’s Cricket Lessons
The team behind Little Cricket who run the pre-school children’s cricket lessons wanted Little Cricket to be more than just bats and balls. They wanted the classes to be somewhere that pre-school girls and boys could grow, develop and learn through cricket.
Little Cricket has been developed on four core principles:
- Fundamental Movement Skills – “Cricket develops nine of the ten Fundamental Movement Skills, more than any other sport” – Matt Dwyer, ECB Director of Participation and Growth
- Early Learning Goals – Little Cricket classes use relevant ELGs to ensure that they are delivered at the correct level for the participants and contribute towards the ELGs for their respective age groups.
- Learning Through Doing – when children play and do they are learning at the highest level.
- The Spirit of Cricket – embedding respect and sportsmanship in the game by incorporating it into our classes.
