Today, flexibility in childcare solutions is very important for parents or guardians who do not need access to full time school age childcare.
Our childcare model is built to suit your needs which means we operate a “pay for what you book” system.
So, whether it is a couple of hours on Wednesday afternoons or 12 hours a week, you just access exactly what you need for your child.
Situated onsite at your children’s school, providing a breakfast club environment enables busy parents the option to drop off the kids early and ensures that they get a healthy, fulfilling breakfast to start their day.
Our After-School Programmes deliver an innovative approach to school age childcare on site at your child’s school. This means that your child is with their peers and in familiar surroundings, giving you the peace of mind that comes with having no pick-up or drop off to worry about during your working day. Your child is our Sherpa Kid and our care for them is guided by 2 main principles which are at the core of everything we do: their safety & their well-being.
At Sherpa Kids we understand the total mis-match between the amount of holidays your child gets compared to the amount you have as a working parent. So to support parents, we offer extended holiday time care at as many schools that we can. Although it is not always feasible in every school, we can guarantee there will be holiday care service at a school near to you.
When your children are at a Sherpa Kids programme, you can feel rest assure that all our Sherpa Kids staff have:
Free Play, Nutrition and Active Kids – A childs’ well being is the most imporatant aspect of their development and we believe this is the most important thing for us to embrace and nurture.
We have created a Sherpa Kids well-being philosophy which revolves around 3 distinct, yet connected areas of focus, being Free Play, Nutrition & Active Kids.
Nurturing The Teenagers Of Tomorrow – This really is a passion for us and one of the main drivers in our ambition to help nurture our teenagers of tomorrow.
There is now significant research-based evidence demonstrating that undirected free play has profound bene?ts on your child’s development, growth and wellbeing.
It can boost their character and personality, promote their physical development, develop their brain and mind, teach them emotional and social skills and improve their academic performance. From the cognitive to the physical, research shows that undirected free play can allow children to gain greater self-con?dence, promote neurological development, and even enhance their ?ne motor skills.
Nutritious Snacks – Nutrition plays an equally important part in supporting your child’s well-being.
Sherpa Kids supports this by providing daily nutritious snacks for your child as well as educating them on the benefits of eating the right foods to ensure a healthy and happy life.
Active Kids Are Happy Kids – At Sherpa Kids we don’t rely on technology to entertain your child in our care.
It’s not that we are “anti-technology”, it’s more we believe it has its place and time.
We believe there are so many more ways to have fun and we want “our” kids to have fun, for fun’s sake.
Active Kids are happy kids and we try our very best at every opportunity to bring your child outdoors so they can enjoy the benefits of active play.
