Our Vision

At Kamelia Kids, we 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 dedicate our time to provide the highest possible standards of care and education to meet your child’s interests and needs. The safety, personal development and education of your child is our prime objective.

Our Facilities

The Kamelia Kids Centre - previously known as the Camelia Botnar Children’s Centre-will cater for children of ALL abilities and backgrounds. By the Autumn term, activities will be extended around the school day. So watch this space!


During the past couple of years the Board of Trustees have been faced with some serious challenges trying to secure funding to keep the Camelia Botnar Childrens Centre open and in July 2014 the Centre became dangerously close to closure.

However, as a result of a determined effort a sustainable business model has been developed and this provides the basis for a more optimistic future. A number of significant factors has emerged from this work one of which is to extend our service to provide early years educational support to ALL children but critically retain our well-established and respected reputation to providing support for children with special and additional needs.

Of note has been the decision to adopt the new trading name of “Kamelia Kids” and it is under this banner that we launch this new website.

We hope that you will find the information both useful and relevant. The staff will be happy to respond to any enquiries you might have and stand ready to provide advice and support on the range of services we are now able to provide.


The Centre is registered with Ofsted to provide childcare on non-domestic premises and is on the Early Years Register and Compulsory Childcare Register..

We are committed to the principles and practice of the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework - this is the national statutory guidance for working with children from birth to five. Through this children of all ages are provided with stimulating, enriching opportunity to develop skills and knowledge across the 7 areas of learning.

All our children are looked after by highly skilled, caring and dedicated staff in spacious and bright accommodation situated on the ground floor and with large outside play areas.

The Centre has a large catchment area, which spans from Shoreham to Arundel, within the county of West Sussex.

As well as providing a holistic offer for the well-being of the children and their families, the centre has close links with the local Health, Educational and Social Services (contact centre for children in care). The centre assists local Colleges with their student training programme for nursery nurses, social workers and teachers.

Parents are the first and most important educators in any child’s life and we see our time with your children as a partnership with you to give them the best possible start in life. Activities are always planned around feedback and information gathered from every parent we work with!
