With schools constantly on the lookout for more services offering quality experiences for students, more and more are choosing to outsource their outside of school hours care requirements to external providers, writes Michael Rasmussen, General Manager at Sherpa Kids Australia.
With the Victorian Curriculum now effective in primary and secondary schools across Australia, Civics and Citizenship Education has been mandated for delivery in all government schools across Victoria. The Victorian Electoral Commission explains how its tailored, free and flexible resources are helping teachers promote student participation.
Sherpa Kids is an international company headquartered in Australia which runs before and after school care services and holiday care in schools and other community facilities. The organisation, which has some 100 franchises worldwide, looks after around 5,400 primary school-aged children every day.
Back-end administration of After School Care is an inconvenience for schools and providers, with multiple platforms that also make life inconvenient for parents. LookedAfter Executive Director Darren Stevenson has a ready-to-use alternative solution for providers and parents.
