If the answer is YES, Sherpa Kids can provide an innovative solution which encompasses all out of school hours services, including After Care, Holiday Programmes and Before School Care.

Sherpa Kids Centres run on your school premises without any administrative burden to the school. The programmes offered are customised to reflect the ethos and operating environment of your school in order to fully meet the needs of the community the school serves. The centres are independently owned and operated. The owners reside in the local community and are perfectly placed to understand each school's unique needs.

Sherpa Kids Centre owners are responsible for the recruitment of staff and ensuring that they all have relevant childcare qualifications and experience. All staff require police clearance certificates. All owners are trained in the rules and standards to be adhered to when operating Sherpa Kids programmes. 

Each partner for Sherpa Kids is carefully selected against rigorous criteria and undergo comprehensive training. All share a common driving passion for children and a commitment to create the best possible environment.

Our training for ALL staff covers, but is not limited to:

  • Sherpa Kids Operational Procedures

We do not duplicate the school's role in the education of children - we complement it. We meet with you and, in required, governing bodies / councils, to meticulously understand requirements of the school and your community.

All Sherpa Kids programmes reflect International Best Practice and our international centres are regulated by state authorities responsible for childcare within the respective countries. These include the Australian Childrens Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA), the Office for Standards in Education, Children, Services and Skills (OFSTED - UK), and the Child Youth and Family Services (CYFS - New Zealand).
