PROGRAM EXAMPLE

Before School Care, After School Care and Holiday Care

Before School, After School and Holiday Care program are provided in accordance with the requirements of the school and Sherpa Kids’ Centre Policies and Procedures (Policies and Procedures). The Policies and Procedures will be developed by Sherpa Kids in alignment with the school’s policies and are subject to the school’s approval.

In collaboration with the school, and supporting its ethos and values, our programmes will be tailored to complement the curriculum and themes running in the school.  The theme for the week is explored each day via planned, fun activities that are designed to link with provincial licensing standards.

A typical After School Care weekly routine is:

  • Monday: Arts & Crafts
  • Tuesday: Music & Drama
  • Wednesday: Sport & Games
  • Thursday: Cooking & Technology
  • Friday: Fun Activities

A typical After School Care daily routine is:

  • 3:30pm – 4:00pm: Roll call, recharge with afternoon snack
  • 4:00pm – 4:30pm: Homework or quiet activity
  • 4:30pm – 5:00pm: Planned learning activity (e.g. Art &Craft)
  • 5:30pm – 5:45pm: Outside play (if weather/light permits)
  • 5:45pm – 6:00pm: Tidy up, quiet time, children are picked up.

Sherpa Kids’ program are a guide to the day’s activities and flexible enough to cater to children’s enthusiasm and interest on the day, but can be altered to suit at the discretion of the Program Manager.

At all times we aim to provide a high quality environment for children which is welcoming, safe and stimulating and where children are able to enjoy learning and grow in confidence.
