WHY CHOOSE US?
Foundation Sports – Pick us, we do things right.

All of our staff have an Enhanced DBS check and we have public liability insurance. Our coaches are very knowledgeable with a wealth of experience plus our coaches are a young friendly face for the children.

AWARD WINNING CAMPS
Foundation Sports provide peace of mind to all parents and carers by providing a safe and stimulating environment where children can play, have fun and learn whilst being cared for by our qualified and experienced staff.
We understand what parents expect for their children when choosing childcare, so we provide a choice of services which include early drop off and late pick up that reduces the pressure on parents and provides maximum benefits for the children.
Foundation Sports Play camp encourages children to play because of the many benefits that playing brings. Playing helps children to become more dynamic and active and this helps in their growth and development regardless of age. Children need to explore the world around them and playing allows a child to develop their skills for solving problems.
Encouraging children to solve age appropriate issues is essential for their development.Every morning we will sit the children down to introduce them to each other and talk about our wish list for the week. The activities on offer include the following: – Creative Play – Board Games – Messy Play – EYFS Activities – Water Fight – Arts & Crafts – Sports Games – Free Play – Multi-Skills Games
By playing with other children they learn how to share, how to negotiate, how to get along with other children and how to be assertive when necessary. By taking part in our sports camp it also develops a child’s ability to compete and win fairly!
This is usually done through group games and team sports. A variety of sports activities will take place at our sports camp such as Football, Dodgeball, Benchball, Netball, Gymnastics, Tennis, Tag Rugby, Quick Sticks Hockey, Street Dance, Water Battles (Seasonal) and more.

Foundation Sports created Active Lunchtimes to get children active during the lunch hour.
In some extreme cases it was designed to keep children busy and out of mischief. We believe that all children, whatever their circumstances or abilities, should be able to participate in and enjoy sport. Sport can improve a child’s confidence to get involved. An Active Lunchtime session will build new skills in participation and communication, plus it shows a desire to improve and achieve. The Active Lunchtime sessions are also an opportunity for the midday assistants to learn from our qualified coaches. New multi-skilled games are taught to the children, all games are taken from our exclusive Foundation Sports curriculum. Our qualified and experienced coaches give a level of enthusiasm that will meet the energetic needs of every child within your school.
MOVE IT PROJECT
Our objective is to promote healthy lifestyles, to help children understand the importance of exercise and food as a part of their everyday lives.
Sessions Include: We aim to give children the knowledge and information which will help them to make better informed choices with regards to leading a healthy lifestyle. The project will contribute to the governments’ strategy on halting the year-on-year increase of childhood obesity.
ABOUT OUR MOVE IT PROJECT
The project will be delivered in a child-friendly format delivering physical activity and nutrition information in a fun and interactive way.
Each lesson will be engaging for the child and will incorporate several learning approaches. We will be looking for the children to be independent enquirers, creative thinkers, reflective learners, team workers, self-managers and effective participators. The core of the scheme will be presented to the children using a new approach to visual presentation, in the form of a zooming production.
