We believe in flexible care solutions!
Today, flexibility in childcare solutions is very important for parents or guardians who do not need access to full time school age childcare.
Our childcare model is built to suit your needs which means we operate a “pay for what you book” system.
So, whether it is a couple of hours on Wednesday afternoons or 12 hours a week, you just access exactly what you need for your child.
Learning About The World
BEFORE SCHOOL CARE
Situated onsite at your children’s school, providing a breakfast club environment enables busy parents the option to drop off the kids early and ensures that they get a healthy, fulfilling breakfast to start their day.
AFTER SCHOOL CARE
Our After-School Programmes deliver an innovative approach to school age childcare on site at your child’s school. This means that your child is with their peers and in familiar surroundings, giving you the peace of mind that comes with having no pick-up or drop off to worry about during your working day. Your child is our Sherpa Kid and our care for them is guided by 2 main principles which are at the core of everything we do: their safety & their well-being.
At Sherpa Kids we understand the total mis-match between the amount of holidays your child gets compared to the amount you have as a working parent. So to support parents, we offer extended holiday time care at as many schools that we can. Although it is not always feasible in every school, we can guarantee there will be holiday care service at a school near to you.

Free Play, Nutrition and Active Kids
A childs’ well being is the most imporatant aspect of their development and we believe this is the most important thing for us to embrace and nurture.
We have created a Sherpa Kids well-being philosophy which revolves around 3 distinct, yet connected areas of focus : Free Play, Nutrition & Active Kids.
- FREE PLAY
- ACTIVE KIDS
Nurturing Ireland’s Teenagers Of Tomorrow
This really is a passion for us and one of the main drivers in our ambition to help nurture Ireland’s teenagers of tomorrow.
There is now significant research-based evidence demonstrating that undirected free play has profound beneﬁts on your child’s development, growth and wellbeing.
It can boost their character and personality, promote their physical development, develop their brain and mind, teach them emotional and social skills and improve their academic performance. From the cognitive to the physical, research shows that undirected free play can allow children to gain greater self-conﬁdence, promote neurological development, and even enhance their ﬁne motor skills.
Why choose Sherpa KidsIreland?
A Healthy Snack Is Part Of The Sherpa Kids Day
Nutrition plays an equally important part in supporting your child’s well-being.
Sherpa Kids supports this by providing daily nutritious snacks for your child as well as educating them on the benefits of eating the right foods to ensure a healthy and happy life.
Active Kids Are Happy Kids
At Sherpa Kids we don’t rely on technology to entertain your child in our care.
It’s not that we are “anti-technology”, it’s more we believe it has its place and time.
We believe there are so many more ways to have fun and we want “our” kids to have fun, for fun’s sake.
Active Kids are happy kids and we try our very best at every opportunity to bring your child outdoors so they can enjoy the benefits of active play.
Kids Having Fun
Why do people love us?
“I cannot praise Sherpa Kids enough for their ongoing kindness and care they extend to our children every day. After our long term childminder retired we were devastated and never thought we would find someone worthy of the job. When I approached Sherpa Kids, any worries were resolved. They offer a flexible payment plan or a pay as you go facility which is fantastic.
I never worry about my children when they are in the care of Sherpa and cannot commend the work they do highly enough. Every week is different and they never get bored. Camps are great value and varied.”
“My children have been attending the after-school service at Sherpa since September 2017. They simply love it, and as parents so do we!!!
The children complete their homework, have a snack and enjoy a variety of activities such as skipping, sports, baking, painting, arts and crafts and drama. All the children have a chance to mix with children from other classes, developing their social skills and building new friendships.
The staff are just amazing, so organised, approachable, energetic and creative. The staff encourage the children to behave well and to have fun. I am very impressed by the standard of care provided by these girls. What a comfort to know while I’m at work that my children are in such safe hands.
Sherpa is fantastic value for money. It offers flexibility and works around the families needs. It is really useful to receive the monthly invoice .
Enrolling my kids in Sherpa has been one of my bests parenting decisions. I am so grateful to the staff there for the care and love they give my children.
Thank you all,”
“We would be absolutely lost without Sherpa kids! The girls are absolutely amazing and Tadhg loves going in the morning and after school! The camps are absolutely fantastic and he is still talking about the summer camp as well as looking forward to the Halloween camp! As working parents it gives us great peace of mind knowing that he is so happy in Sherpa! The girls do an amazing job and it is a real home away from home! We could not recommend it highly enough!!”
