Why Sherpa Kids?

As a principal you know the difference it makes to you and your school community when you have high quality, well-managed outside school hours care on your site.

At Sherpa Kids we deliver exactly that – but with a difference you may not have seen in other Outside School Hours Care providers.

Because our model is built on local franchises, you get the best of both worlds – the care and concern of a local operator with the confidence and authority of stable, professional central management.

Firstly, your service is owned and managed by a carefully selected local, usually a mum or dad themselves and in some cases could be a professional from the education industry.  They understand families, they understand schools, and they want to mirror your school’s values in their before and after school services and vacation care.  Perhaps best of all, they manage all the administration, hiring and parent communication.  There’s no burden on your staff and you receive regular reports for your peace of mind.

Secondly, the franchisees are all part of a highly professional group that has the central resources to national regulatory compliance, sound business systems, up-to-date training for all staff, engaging programs for the children that have been and excellent reporting for parents.

Just as a Sherpa Guide helps a mountaineer, so does a Sherpa Kids service in your school relieves you of the burden of OSHC administration and guides you and your school community to reach great heights.

Sherpa Kids is the OSHC provider with a local heartbeat, by connecting with the community providing fun, safe programs for children and use the influence from your school and children in developing our programmes.  Reach, Engage, Challenge!

We are very passionate about responding to the needs your children.

Eliminate your regulatory paperwork

As we are involved in a highly regulated environment, it is important that procedures are followed through correctly for government compliance under the Ofsted Framework.

By partnering with us, Sherpa Kids will take care of your new service setup and applications, administration of child care entitlements for families, and manage the whole registration process.
