Parent Testimonials:

  • Heidi – “Since you have taken over the business we have recognized some lovely changes that I wanted to say THANK YOU for. The breakfast/Morning Tea and afternoon tea and great; the little toy gifts the children receive each day are fantastic and the overall program and variety is great. My children love going every time and I just wanted to say ‘You are doing a great job’ and we tell everyone! Thank you”
  • Linda – “I just wanted to let you know how much my kids enjoyed the recent school holidays at Sherpa Kids.  There were lots of fun activities and an abundance of resources; a nice change!  With this increase in resources and enjoyment obvious of the children, the educators looked happier and more relaxed.  Since going back to school for term 4, the Educators have started doing homework with the kids. This is EXTREMELY appreciated and means that when the kids get home from al ong day at School and Afterschool Care, they are free to play outside and enjoy their time as compared to me trying to do their homework with them, whilst dividing my time between making dinner and lunches for the next day. I thought I should acknowledge these positive changes, as they are really noticeable and deserve to be recognised.”
