I am Samantha and I am the Director of Sherpa Kids Gateshead. I am married with 2 children and I am based in the Gateshead area. I have over 12 years experience working in Childcare. I spent 8 years living and working in the Middle East teaching Children in early years and running the PTA at my children’s school. I moved back to the UK 4 years ago and volunteered in a couple of schools as a Teaching Assistant until I decided to join the Sherpa Kids family in 2017.
Our services at Barley Mow Primary School are now well established, providing the school community with the wrap-around care needed by so many working parents. Our Sherpa Kids have great fun with all our activities and we look forward to welcoming new children into our club. If you would like more information on what Sherpa Kids could offer your child/children, please do give us a call.
After School Care – 3:15pm – 6:00pm
We keep our Sherpa Kids busy with a variety of activities based around a weekly theme.
Our themes are varied and look to recognise different cultures and faiths, good values, our local community and the world around us. One week our Sherpa Kids could be enjoying their favourite songs from Beauty and the Beast or Frozen with ‘Disney Week’, the next they might be getting creative decorating Poppy biscuits for ‘Remembrance Week’.
We encourage our Sherpa Kids to get involved in some outdoor play (weather permitting) every day. Around our activity of the day we make time for ‘quiet’ time for reading, homework, drawing or colouring in as well as time for a healthy snack to recharge their batteries after the school day.
