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.


The nursery is Ofsted-registered to care for up to 75 children of ALL abilities from 0-8 years and offers 51 weeks full day care with breakfast, lunch and after school clubs. The nursery follows a curriculum based on the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) principle of children learning through play and has a large catchment area within West Sussex, spanning from Shoreham to Arundel.

Kamelia Kids is also unique in that it is the ONLY not-for-profit nursery in this part of West Sussex supporting 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. Please see our Local Offer Q&A for more details. We are extremely proud of our charitable status because it strongly influences our values and holistic approach to childcare, setting us apart from other more ‘commercial’ nursery settings in the area.

Motivated by providing outstanding quality care; every penny generated by donations and fundraising is therefore spent on caring for the children, where they feel valued and where they and their families are given the support needed in order to reach their full potential.

We are also extremely proud of the close relationships developed with the local Health, Education and Social Services, and the support we provide to local colleges’ student training programmes for Early Years practitioners, social workers and teachers.

Christmas Comes Early to Kamelia Kids! RF 1547

What could make Christmas more magical than an encounter with Father Christmas himself? That’s what happened last Friday when Christmas came early to the children at Kamelia Kids Day Nursery.

The Christmas Fayre had lots of fun activities with Santa in his Grotto giving out presents to each and every child with elves and the Grinch adding to the magic of it all! Even the Mayor Councillor Michael Donin met with Santa!

This Christmas Fayre also marked the unveiling of the DIY SOS project for the newly decorated Sunflower and sensory rooms used for children with special complex needs. This project managed by Robert Luff Estate Agents generated a great deal of support from the local community and local tradesmen. Through sheer hard work and kindness they have transformed and created rooms that are bright and stimulating. We cannot thank them enough for their support!

A Christmas Raffle was held to raise much needed funds, with a variety of different stalls, with lots of lovely and unique gift items available for purchase, as well as some yummy food and refreshments.

In all, it was a successful magical day spent with the Luff team.

Open Day Success

JJKamelia Kids Day Nursery held its second ‘Open Day’ on Saturday 19 September 2015 in Wellesley Avenue, Goring by Sea.

The nursery has been on a journey since its rebranding at the beginning of the year extending its services to an all year round full day care with breakfast, lunch and after school clubs for children of ALL abilities from 0 – 8 years now in full operation from the beginning of September.

Not only that, the nursery has also undergone a terrific amount of transformation in terms of decoration and refurbishment to its rooms, launching the new Daisy baby room.

This second ‘Open Day’ event was again very popular with those who attended with comments on the great facilities and the ‘warm and welcoming staff’. Children were also enthusiastic with comments like ‘this is amazing’, and ‘I want to stay, do we really have to go yet’! The children were also entertained with Jo Jingles music and fun activities with the staff.

Nursery Manager, Rachel Martini said ‘As ever 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’.
