Our Well being philosophy
Our well-being Philosophy
We have created a Sherpa Kids well-being philosophy that is a holistic approach designed to nurture the overall well-being and development of every child in our care. This philosophy centers around three interconnected pillars that are integral to fostering a healthy and enriching environment:
Active Kids are Happy Kids!
Physical activity is essential for a child’s overall health and development. Our well-being philosophy encourages active engagement through various physical activities and games. We believe that being active not only promotes physical well-being but also enhances social skills, confidence, and teamwork.
Proper nutrition is fundamental to a child’s growth and well-being. We emphasizes the significance of providing balanced and nourishing meals and snacks. We prioritize healthy food choices that cater to children’s dietary needs, supporting their physical development and boosting their energy levels.
We believe that children learn best through play. Our well-being philosophy promotes the importance of free play, allowing children the freedom to explore, imagine, and create in an unstructured environment. Free play enhances cognitive, emotional, and social skills, encouraging children to develop problem-solving abilities, creativity, and self-expression.
