Watch some of our fun activities!

We open from 7:45 and at 8:50 we drop off the children to their class lines. During this time, we offer them a heathy breakfast (cereals and milk, toast with butter, natural yoghurt with fruits, etc.). They also get the chance to play some of their favourite games & activities (be it UNO, beading or anything else) before starting their school day.

We start our afternoon at 1:30 by collecting the Junior and Senior infants from their classes. Everyone starts working on their homework and once this is done, we have a quick snack (rice cakes, crackers or fruit) and then it’s free playtime. At 2:30 the older children come in and we really kick off the afternoon programme. Once the kids have eaten and finished their homework we have a daily themed activity. Whether it’s Arts & Crafts, Music and Drama or our already-famous Friday Fun Days, kids have great fun in a relaxed, yet stimulating environment.

Children can be picked up throughout the afternoon, giving parents much needed flexibility.

We are organising camps that 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.

"Joanne and Annette and the team at Sherpa Kids are amazing. It’s clear that they adore the kids. The children have lots of fun while learning through play and engage in a lot of outdoor activities.

My son has learned so much from Joanne and Annette in the last year, he has grown so much in confidence. Thank you to Sherpa Kids for making it a wonderful experience for my son on a daily basis. "                                                                                                               (Pamela – Parent)


" We have 2 children in after school care at Sherpa and cannot recommend it enough. One of our children has serious food allergies and the staff go above and beyond to ensure that he has the exact same experience as the other children. 

The staff are so friendly and enthusiastic and are always coming up with fun activities for the children. 

It is a brilliant after school program and we highly recommend it."                                                                                                                                (Anne-Marie – Parent)


"Sherpa Kids has been a great help during all this time, and I am delighted to say that my son is enjoying & has been enjoying the time spent with the Sherpa team.

I am grateful that Sherpa Kids is open for discussion and ready to listen and help with all my issues so far. 

Is a great place to have your child develop and grow. My son really enjoys the fun activities and games they have on a daily basis"                                                                                                                                 (Iulia Andrei - parent )
