What is a “Schlepper”? A Schlepper is an old Yiddish word I used to hear my parents use when they were asked what they were doing over the weekend…They would say, “I can’t, I have to schlepp the kids to softball and then I have to schlep them to dance class.” A rite of passage for parents but none the less stressful with our hectic schedules!



One of the biggest complaints I hear from parents is not cost, but time… They cannot get off work to get their child to an appointment or practice before 5:30 pm. They are riddled with guilt because their child wants to play a sport or attend an activity, but there are scheduling conflicts or time restraints. The list goes on and on…



  • We are not Uber! We assign drivers to families to meet their transportation needs.

Once a family becomes a member, they will be assigned their own personal Schlepper. An interview will be set up for the family to meet their perspective driver, discuss their schlepping needs and make sure everyone is a good fit. Once that is established, a schedule is given to the driver to follow for the length of the activity.

  • Our drivers are 35 yrs. old and up and are local moms and grandmas.
  • Our drivers go through a comprehensive background check (state and federal).
  • Our drivers have also been successfully vetted through our insurance company and have stellar driving records.
  • Our drivers have received a safety seal sticker from the State Highway Patrol to ensure all vehicles meet strict safety standards.
  • Our drivers are trained and certified in pediatric CPR.
  • Each ride comes with a bottled water and personalized snack.
  • Notifications are sent to parents via text when child has been picked up and dropped off.

    We have been using Junior Explorer Club’s pickup service for my older child who does not get a school bus from her middle school to get back home because of the close, yet no so close proximity of our home to the school. The service managed by Michele Slone-Rapp has been a blessing and a huge relief to my family. We get texts informing us that the taxi and the driver are waiting for the pickup, have picked up my child and the final text informs us that our child is safe at home. The best thing about the service is the reliability. I have never had a day when there was a major delay in pickup or pickup just didn’t happen. On top of that, I like the flexibility of giving the week’s pick up schedule in advance yet once in a while there was a quick adjustment needed and it did happen. I would recommend not only the regular pick up services from school but also the Schlepp punch passes. The punch passes help us in times when we can’t take our kids to activities and also help when there are odd time pickups from school due to practices etc. and we can’t get out of work to do that ourselves. Overall, I would be lost without this service and am so happy that it meets our needs. We are indeed very happy customers!
