Kamelia Kids is a local community not for profit Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO). For over 40 years, the nursery (previously known as Camelia Botnar Children’s Centre) has provided professional pre-school care to children with special needs, long-term medical and/or life-limiting conditions. Our charity objects are:
“To support all children particularly those with special and additional needs due to sickness, physical or mental disability, poverty or social and economic circumstances through the provision of facilities, help and education, including support to their families and carers, to enable them to achieve the best possible educational, developmental and other outcomes.”
As a beach school with its own beach hut, we have 3 beach school leaders (Level 3) of the beach school practitioners are outdoor first aid trained. When planning for beach school and assessing the children we use the whole development of the child (holistic development), every area of the Early Years Foundation Stage framework (EYFS) is covered in beach school.
The beach is within walking distance where we explore the rock pools; looking are the living creatures in them, sand activities and paddling.
Kamelia Kids provides a nurturing, caring and stimulating environment for all children, including those who have experienced a difficult start in life and there is a commitment to ensuring that ALL children feel fully valued and cared for and that they and their families are given all the support they need in order to reach their full potential.
