Carmel Caterpillars Preschool




Welcome to Carmel Caterpillars Pre School Sittingbourne, Kent. We offer a safe, stimulating, fun and exciting environment where infants will develop a positive sense of self worth and secure attachments by participating in a safe, nurturing learning environment.

Carmel Caterpillars Preschool is the perfect venue for letting your child’s mind and heart grow with knowledge and emotional fulfilment. We have a breadth of child care knowledge and experience along with a wide selection  of educational resources, essential for enhancing the development of your child.

We work using the Early Years Foundation Stage and within a framework which encourages equality of opportunity for all children and their families. We provide the best possible care for your child, in our parent-involved, community based setting.

We would love you and your child to come and visit us and we can now offer limited access visits. So please do call 07946547347 to arrange a visit to meet us! 

In June we had a Brilliant Ofsted Inspection  with a GOOD rating, receiving praise for our high quality of teaching and learning with our enthusiastic and motivated staff team! The link to our Ofsted Report is here using our code 127083 here 

In a recent ECERS (Early Childhood Environment Rating Scale) review we scored a fantastic maximum score of 7 in 11 provisions. I have listed details of this and also attached a very complimentary letter from the Corporate Director from Early Years Childcare, KCC in our 'For Parents' section. 

We have a virtual walk through of the hall on our Facebook site (Carmel Caterpillars) so that you can see how we are set up in-line with the Governments Safety Guidelines, so please take a look. And remember it doesn't matter how young your precious ones are, we now have a waiting list up to September 2023!


There are also some lovely comments from our graduating caterpillars in the For Parents tab, so please take a look.
