Sherpa Kids is about much more than just school age childcare.

We aim to create social value in every community we operate in, whether it is by developing our “kids” into tomorrow’s teenagers, allowing parents to return to work or go back to some form of education.

We like to immerse ourselves in the school community to “Support Ireland’s Families and Make a Difference”.
