Sherpa Kids Before and After-School Care
Before School Care:
Sherpa Kids welcome children not only in the afternoons but also in the mornings. They open from 7:45 and at 9:00 they drop off the children to their class lines. During this time, they offer them a heathy breakfast (cereals and milk, toast with butter, natural yoghurt with fruits, etc.). The children also get the chance to play some of their favourite games & activities (be it UNO, beading or anything else) before starting their school day.
After School Care:
They start our afternoon at 1:40 by collecting the Junior and Senior infants from their classes. Everyone starts working on their homework and once this is done, the children have a quick snack (toast and/ or fruit) and then it’s free playtime. At 2:40 the older children come in and the afternoon programme kicks off. Once the kids have eaten and finished their homework there is a daily themed activity. Whether it’s Arts & Crafts, Music and Drama or Friday Fun Days, kids have great fun in a relaxed, yet stimulating environment.
Children can be picked up anytime throughout the afternoon, giving parents much needed flexibility.
Summer camps are open to any children aged 4-12 during mid-terms, school closure days and holidays. Camps usually run from 9am to 2pm with before camp and after camp options available.
