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.

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 Ofsted report following their inspection of the nursery on 23 May 16. The inspection was carried out under the new, more stringent OFSTED framework for inspections that has 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 our nursery 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.

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. To read the full report please click on the link: Kamelia Kids Ofsted Report - 23 May 2016


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 Day Nursery 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. 

As a charity, 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.



An easter themed ‘open day’ was held on Saturday 19 March 2016.  Staff were on hand to welcome parents and children.  Children were entertained with activities which included, hook a duck, face painting and egg hunting around the nursery.   Refreshments were well received with homemade cakes and buns to whet the appetite.  A raffle was held with proceeds being churned back into the charity for the benefit of the children that attend the nursery. Open Day Mar 16
It has been over 12 months since Kamelia extended its services and is going from strength to strength, offering 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. Changes have included new baby and toddler rooms; a DIY SOS type makeover to complex needs room and sensory room including furnishings.  
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’.
