Our focus is to provide a loving, caring, home-away-from home environment for your child/ren where there will be loads of learning, fun and personal development.

Sherpa Kids is an international out of school hours service provider that runs before school care, holiday care and after care at various schools across the globe. We service over 9,000 families on a daily basis across 250 schools. We have 20 years’ experience in our field and have been in South Africa since 2014.

Sherpa Kids South Africa brings South African parents internationally benchmarked, structured and professional offerings, allowing for a comprehensive solution to your out of school hour’s needs. (This includes mid-term breaks and every holiday (Dec and Jan too!). Currently we look after 1,500 children per day across South Africa.

Sherpa Kids currently run our service from the three separate venues being: Playschool, Pre-Primary school and Grade 1 section of the Primary School.

What to expect:

We run weekly themes and each day involves different categories of activities. These include arts & crafts, music & drama, fun food & experiments as well as sports & games.

Our focus is on the children’s personal growth as well as the development of life skills, all whilst having loads and loads of fun! All Sherpa Kids Programmes reflect International Best Practice and this is evident in the accredited status of Sherpa Kids' operations in New Zealand, Australia and United Kingdom and as such each site will be quality assured by our South African Head Office.
