Sherpa Kids offer’s a range of childcare care options
As Sherpa Kids franchisee, you have a range of available programmes to offer your local communities that bring an immersive and integrated OSHC environment for 2 – 18 year olds.
AGE 2 – 6yrs – Sherpa Tots is perfect for the typical preschool child, who is full of energy for life, having fun, learning new things and they posses an eagerness to discover their own abilities.
At the pre-school age, their enquiring minds and their interest in new things and experiences concepts makes it so important that you choose childcare where your child’s development and education is fun-filled, offers choices and is based on learning through play (Playducation).
AGE 6 – 12yrs – Sherpa Kids is focused on school aged care where both after and before school, plus holiday care are an important part of the day for busy parents.
Managed by local franchisees, the Sherpa Kids’ activities include:
- arts and crafts
- music and drama
- sport and games
More than 80 Playducation themes have been prepared, equating to more than two and half years of fun and educationally engaging activities for these 6-12yr old children.
Every day can be a Sherpa Kids day. We meet with you and governing councils (if required) to meticulously understand the requirements of childcare in the community. We work with our teams of franchisees’s to design a tailor, purpose made childcare program that meets the communities unique needs. We share what has worked for others and the reasons why.
We then implement a fresh, innovative and resourceful new program with minimum of fuss. True Sherpa Kids Style!
