Hall-Thorpe Sports offers a range of quality services including:
- Free specialty sport and activity clinics available to all children enrolled in outside school hours care. In order to provide variety these change every term
- A range of stimulating activities for children who only enjoy limited sport or who already have a number of sporting commitments
- Nutritious afternoon tea
- Quality programming provided by qualified educators and Early Childhood specialists
The goal of Hall-Thorpe Sports is to focus on the four developmental movement concepts which are essential to learning patterns during early/middle childhood:
- Body awareness
- Effort awareness
- Space awareness and
- Relationship awareness
The relationship between learning and the development of motor skills is well documented. Research shows that children who play sport and are physically active, are more likely to have improved learning and more positive education outcomes. Within this framework then, outside school hours care programs such as Hall–Thorpe Sports, which engage students in physical activity, are more likely to see benefits across a range of areas, including physical and psychological well being, and scholastic improvement.
Hall-Thorpe Sports Outside School Hours Care is Child Care Benefit Approved (this includes Kindergarten children). Parents are required to complete the relevant paperwork should you wish to enrol. Hall-Thorpe Sports prices are competitive, and fully approved for child care rebate.
