Benefits of a Sherpa Kids franchise

Sherpa Kids is an out of school hours care business with many potential income streams which can include after school care, before school care, childcare and holiday care services. These are managed by franchisees who employ staff to operate on school properties.

Because our after school activity franchises are based on site at primary schools throughout Australia there are no expensive, long-term retail rents involved. And it’s a business model that will grow with you – the more you do, the more you will be rewarded.

Each franchisee has the opportunity to work with several schools located in the same area.

Sherpa Kids Australia after school franchises are backed by a highly-skilled and internationally-awarded franchise team led by Vicki Prout, a record four-time winner of the South Australian Franchise Woman of the Year award.

Training, mentoring and coaching is provided on an ongoing basis. Business planning guidance is available, as is assistance with marketing and business growth.

We will work your territory with you and help you to sign up your first school.

  • Low cost entry – our business entry level is from as little as AU$50,000
  • Highly structured programs ready for your engagement that align with national regulations
