Sherpa Kids offers high quality childcare at an affordable price

Our services aim to give children “such a good time they just don’t want to go home!” Sherpa Kids provides them with food, supervise their homework, let them play, and engage them with fun, themed and stimulating activities.

Working on a child carer ratio of no more than 15:1, we deliver a fresh and vibrant approach to childcare. No matter what your afterschool needs are Sherpa Kids offers flexible options to suit your family needs.

International Best Practice allows for top quality standards, quality assurance and a programme that is built to meet the needs of young children.

Before School Care through to After School Care | Monday to Friday: 07H00 – 18H00
(Includes homework time and fun activities.)

The right start to a child’s day is essential for great learning and Sherpa Kids are able to care for children at their Sherpa Kids centre before school begins for the day. Whether you are an early starter or need to travel a distance to work we would be happy to welcome your child into our care at either the start or end of the day.

You can be rest assured that they are safe, secure and having a fabulous time, and don’t stress about being late for pickups from school again!!

Education Through Play

Sherpa Kids | Payducation

As part of the Sherpa Kids team you will deliver a ‘fresh and vibrant’ approach to childcare based around the concept of Playducation™, which provides an immersive and integrated learning environment.

What can your child expect?

Our team deliver a ‘fresh and vibrant’ approach to Before and Aftercare. To help parents like you our service hours are tailored to the needs of the school, the parents and the local community.

Weekly themes as well as a variety of activities are incorporated into the daily programme for aftercare. During holiday care each day has a new theme! The daily programme is an indication, only, of the types of activities the children will be involved with at any given time. However, depending on the children’s enthusiasm and interest, it may be varied at the discretion of the staff. We are all about building relationships with children so as to provide as much fun and stimulation as possible!

Each week we offer Playducation, these themed daily activities include a mixture of:

“Sherpa Kids offers a professional and excellent aftercare service. They come fully recommended for the quality of communication, service and care for children.

Graeme Edwards

“As a full time working mom and dad with no close family, Sherpa Kids at PCS has been a life saver. Connor loves attending the holiday club. It is a perfect balance of structured activity, free play and relaxation for the kids. The staff are caring and we have the peace of mind of knowing our precious child is well taken care of, while we work.”

The teachers are all hands-on and make sure the safety of kids is a priority in their presence. They really are also helpful in assisting learners with homework daily. The staff has natural parental love. Sherpa SA – preferably at Lebone II College, rocks!! BIG UP TO THEM.
