Sherpa Kids – An engaging childcare franchise

Sherpa Kids is an out of school hours care business which comprises of aftercare, holiday care and before school (breakfast club) care. The services are run directly on school properties.

Services are staffed by qualified personnel who meet minimum standards as prescribed by the brand as well as International Best Practice and managed by the owners of the Sherpa Kids franchise. Each franchisee may operate multiple, closely located and similar profiled schools.

In England, we currently have 12 franchisees operating over 20 sites. We are aspiring to grow to 100 franchisees operating 500 sites*.

The Sherpa Kids model:

Our model is simply the ‘everyone wins’ paradigm, and there are numerous audiences that benefit from Sherpa Kids franchises. These include:

  • Families - managing time/stress and priorities through reduced fragmentation of out of school hours care
  • Schools - supporting them through educationally beneficial outsourcing and with a solution that allows principals and teachers to focus on their core function
  • Children - improvement of self-esteem through improved results and social benefits
  • Communities - the collection of all the positive benefits together with providing jobs/business opportunities for local suppliers/entrepreneurs
  • Teachers - potential career-pathing post teaching careers

Who we are looking for

Sherpa Kids are looking for individuals who have the capability to develop and manage a regional territory. The individual(s) will need a business background in management and a resume of work history that supports working with people in a team environment while achieving success.

A marketing or sales background is helpful, but not required. This is a people business, and the most successful partners care about helping others achieve success.
