Why Sherpa Kids?

As a principal you’ll be well aware of 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 that other after school care and OOSH service providers cannot match.

Because our business is built on the local franchise model you get the best of both worlds – the care and concern of a local decision maker based in your community, combined with the confidence and authority of stable, professional central management.

Firstly, your service is owned and managed by a carefully selected local community member; usually a mum or dad and, in some cases, an education professional. They understand families, they understand schools, and they want to mirror your school’s values in their before and after school care services and vacation care. Perhaps best of all, they take over and manage all your administration, recruitment, training, staff rota, parent communication and compliance obligations. And all food and resources are bought locally from retailers in your area.

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 with centralised resources geared to ensuring State and Federal regulatory compliance, and enabling effective staff training, development of engaging programs for the children we care for, and excellent reporting systems for parents.

Just as a Sherpa guide helps a mountaineer, so a Sherpa Kids before school, after school and holiday care service relieves you of the burden of OSHC administration and guides you and your school community over the tricky parts of the route.

Sherpa Kids is the OSHC service provider with a local heartbeat. Professional, engaging and results-oriented. While also part of your community.

Cut down on your regulatory paperwork

The Out of School Hours (OOSH) care sector is intensely regulated. So it’s important that procedures are followed correctly. When you partner with us we will take care of your OOSH services set-up in full.
