Sherpa Kids South Africa brings South African parents internationally benchmarked, structured and professional offerings, allowing for a comprehensive solution to your out of school hours needs. (This includes mid-term breaks and every holiday (Dec and Jan too!) Sherpa Kids currently run our service from the pre-primary school and are open for children from playschool up to and including Grade 3.

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.
