Out of Hours School Care (OHSC) in South Africa is typically offered as an in-house on-site school provided service in response to demands from working parents or by outsourced off site providers, usually neighbourhood nursery schools. Neither of these solutions provides a service that is focused specifically on professional aftercare and holiday care developed using International Best Practice guidelines geared towards primary school aged children. The end result for parents and schools are relatively poor standards when reviewing number and type of staff employed, their training and management, on-site policies and as importantly the actual programmes offered . Many service providers/ school staff offering aftercare and holiday care an add on to their (already onerous) teaching commitments.
Sherpa Kids International through Sherpa Kids South Africa is seeking to remedy this situation by providing affordable before and after school care across South Africa, owned and operated by you – the local who knows the community.
We have the collective knowledge that comes with a large, internationally diverse and experienced Out of Hours School Care provider yet retain a personal touch by employing local, community minded individuals. Since 1996, our impressive history has been underpinned by a high level of knowledge, integrity and expertise that professionalises our brand, our systems and most importantly, our people. Sherpa Kids has an infective energy that is predicated on a genuine passion for delivering, via collaboration, a quality, structured and safe service that is more than affordable.
We create and deliver customised services via a fun, structured and engaging programme. This will challenge all to reach higher aspirations and we partner closely with the school community to achieve this. Our model will allow you to have a demographic of over 3500 enrolled students which could translate to around 8 -10 schools.
