We are always looking for savvy business owners to share the Sherpa Kids dream.

Sherpa Kids is a rewarding business where you can make a difference!

Operating a Sherpa Kids franchise is not only financially rewarding, but is also emotionally rewarding, because every day you can:

  • Work with children in your area, providing structured supervision via before school, after school and vacation care services
  • Build relationships with our most precious cargo – kids!
  • Have fun, listen to stories, learn, laugh and cry!
  • Help kids increase their confidence
  • Watch them develop and learn.

What some of our Australian franchisees have to say:

“From my initial contact with Vicki and the Sherpa team, I have found them to be an outstandingly proficient and extremely professional organisation.  It was from these first impressions that convinced me that I had to be a part of the Sherpa Kids operation.   Since making this decision I have not had an opportunity to look back as the initial phase of my business has been fast and effective.  They have done everything to set me up to succeed and are extremely supportive on guiding me to achieve success.  I can now look forward to the next phase of my business.”

Mick Rasmussen, Sherpa Kids Narellan

“Late last year I decided I wanted to retire! Well that idea didn’t last long….. I’ve never run a business before, and apart from being a mother of one son and an aunty, I hadn’t “worked” with children before either. I asked Vicki Prout what Sherpa Kids was about and the rest, as they say “is history”. I began my journey with Sherpa Kids wanting to do something worthwhile in my community. It took me some time to take the leap, but getting to that point Vicki’s passion for what Sherpa Kids is about inspired me.

I bought the franchise of Area Developer South Australia/Northern Territory which comes with all the training, tools, encouragement and support needed. We have an awesome team in Head Office whose experience and belief in what we’re doing backs us all the way.  South Australia is experiencing great change in the OSHC sector at present, and while we have a way to go yet, it’s very exciting.

I’m not a salesperson but I love talking to Principals and Governing Council members about Sherpa Kids and its complete out-of-school-hours-care management package, what that means to a schools community, their families and children. Learning? Every day!  Love it.”

Michele Button, Sherpa Kids SA/NT (Area Developer)
