Free Sports Classes For Nurseries Announced

May 21, 2021

A £1 million early years sports fund has been launched to give every child in a nursery in England the opportunity to attend free sports and activity classes, which aim to combat the impact of the pandemic.

Day Nurseries reports that the fund has been created by Super Star Sport UK so that every nursery-attending child in England can take part in a sports and activity session whiteout the worry of how it will be funded.

Following a difficult year of lockdowns, the aim of the early years sports fun is to provide mental, physical, and social benefits to as many children as possible.

Founder of Super Star Sport UK, Angelo Ciccarelli said that following the pandemic and the multiple lockdowns of the past year, many nursery providers have been finically struggling, and the fund is to help support them.

“Not only have the settings been under pressure but many children may have become inactive through the lockdowns affecting their health and wellbeing,” Ciccarelli said.

“This is why we have launched the early years sports fund which will ensure that children across the country will have the opportunity to get involved in sports and activity classes fully funded for their setting.”

Every nursery and preschool in England can apply for access to the fun and the classes by filling in an online form, and, if successful, a representative from Super Star Sports UK will get in touch to arrange the delivery of the free classes.

The classes are approximately 45 minutes long and can cover almost every sport, including football, basketball, mini rugby, athletics, gymnastics, and basic fitness.

The fund ensures that 100 per cent of the costs involved are covered so that children can get the benefits of the classes at no expense.

Wow!!!! Were to begin.. this is by far the best nursery I could have sent my children too. The staff are extremely... friendly helpful and ensure the children are cared for and they learnt so much. My children settled really well and have both enjoyed being here. Seeing them so happy and always excited for the next day at paintpots Manchester makes me feel so at ease leaving them. They are always involving parents in everything and make you feel like one big family. A massive thank you to everyone who works there and all you have done. Looking forward to extending our family into their welcoming nursery again in the more

Sent my step-son here for over 2 years before he started school. Perfect location, great staff and most importantly, he... loved it. Only issue was the refurbishment of the building taking place, but they even managed to use that as a learning experience and the kids all loved the builders and diggers opposite!!read more

I sent my child to this Nursery after having sent his 2 older siblings. I work in the City Centre and they love the... place, they all did. There are staff that have been there for over 10 years, location is fantastic and whilst the recent renovation works have not been ideal, it hasn't affected the care one bit. Somehow, they even find a way to make activities that involve the construction materials. Can't recommend highly enough!!read more
