The Sherpa Kids model:

Our model is simply the ‘everyone wins’ paradigm, and there are numerous audiences that benefit from Sherpa Kids franchises. These include:

  • Families - managing time/stress and priorities through reduced fragmentation of out of school hours care
  • Schools - supporting them through educationally beneficial outsourcing and with a solution that allows principals and teachers to focus on their core function
  • Children - improvement of self-esteem through improved results and social benefits
  • Communities - the collection of all the positive benefits together with providing jobs/business opportunities for local suppliers/entrepreneurs
  • Teachers - potential career-pathing post teaching careers

Who we are looking for

Sherpa Kids are looking for individuals who have the capability to develop and manage a Country / Regional Master Franchise territory. The individual(s) will need a business background in management and a resume of work history that supports working with people in a team environment while achieving success.
