Our Vision

Learning begins from birth and high quality early education and care has the potential to make an important and positive impact on the learning, devlopment and wellbeing of babies and young children, in their daily lives and the longer term. At Kamelia Kids, we truly believe that all children have the right to be; listened to, understood and given the time and opportunity to develop as individuals to be creative, competent learners in a secure, caring and inspiring environment.

Our Promise

Our promise is to provide the highest quality early education and care to meet your child’s interests and needs. The personal development, education and safety of your child is our prime objective.

Our Facilities

Kamelia Kids Day Nursery caters for children of ALL abilities and backgrounds up to the age of eight. We provide high quality day-care around the core school-day with breakfast, lunch and after school clubs from 8am to 6pm.

About Kamelia Kids...

 RF 9176

Kamelia Kids Day Nursery is Ofsted-registered for children of ALL abilities from 0-8 years.  Covering a large catchment area Shoreham-by-Sea to Arundel we offer 51 weeks full day care with breakfast, lunch and after school clubs. The nursery follows the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) principle of children learning through play.

Kamelia Kids Day Nursery supports a number of pre-school children with a wide range of complex needs (long term medical and life limiting conditions) and those with social, educational and additional needs.

We value the close relationships developed with the local Health, Education and Social Services, and KK supports local college student training programmes for Early Years practitioners, social workers and teachers.

Kamelia Kids recently extended its services to offer a full day care service with breakfast, lunch and after school clubs, for children of ALL abilities. The Nursery has undertaken extensive modifications to the interior of the building to maintain an environment that is safe, stimulating and fit for purpose. Local businesses and volunteers keen to support the charity have helped with the changes to the internal layout and decoration. Most recent changes have included setting up new baby and toddler rooms; a DIY SOS type makeover to sensory room and the room devoted to children with complex needs.  

Nursery Manager Rachel Martini and her staff have made an enormous contribution to the vision and direction of the nursery. Rachel said ‘At Kamelia kids we endeavour to provide the best possible standard of care and education to meet children’s interests and needs in a safe and stimulating environment’.  

Ofsted inspects and regulates all educational establishments in order to achieve excellence in the care of children and young people, and in education and skills for learners of all ages. We are delighted with our recent Ofsted inspection report (May 2016). The inspection was carried out under the new, more stringent OFSTED framework for inspections that had been in place since September 2015. The grades that can be awarded are Outstanding (1), Good (2), Requires Improvement (3) or Inadequate (4).
Ofsted has rated Kamelia Kids as “Good” in all areas; Effectiveness of the leadership and management; Quality of teaching, learning and assessment; Personal development, behaviour & welfare; Outcomes for Children and Overall effectiveness.

What the report says:

  • Staff know children very well. They use information from parents to fully understand and plan for children's individual needs. Children make consistently good progress and are well prepared for their move to school.
  • Staff have excellent relationships with external agencies and other professionals that support children's learning and additional needs. This provides a strong and consistent approach to promote children's development and well-being.
  • Managers and staff place high regard on partnership working with parents. They involve them fully in their children's development and share information well.
  • Children are extremely happy and demonstrate high levels of confidence within the setting. They have strong relationships with their key person and all staff that care for them.
  • The managers and staff strive for improvement. They have extensive plans to improve the provision in order to further enhance the already good quality of teaching and learning experiences for children.

The report overall is a fair and accurate reflection of our own evaluation of the strengths and areas for development identified in our own self-evaluation. We are very confident in our plans for continuous improvement and look forward to sharing our ongoing progress with parents and carers whom we thank for their continued support.

The nursery is brilliant. It’s been an absolute godsend for our family
- Angie, Kamelia Kids parent
It’s been incredibly beneficial meeting other parents in the same boat. We’ve built really strong relationships here and feel much less isolated
Kate, Kamelia Kids parent
I love Kamelia Kids and all the staff in it. Having been in Worthing less than a year, I thought my little girls would struggle to settle, like she did at her last nursery but no…, from day one she has loved every bit which as a Mum is the number one thing. The staff are amazing and so experienced. Thank you to all the team
Kamelia Kids Parent
