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 have a virtual walk through of the hall on our Facebook site (Carmel Caterpillars)  But we strongly recommend coming in for a visit with your child to get to know us and have a relaxed look round. Either send us a message using the Contact Us page, drop us an email at or call on 07946547347 to book a visit. Remember it doesn't matter how young your precious ones are, we now have a waiting list for September 2023 and beyond!

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. 

There are also some lovely comments from our leavers families in the For Parents tab and some new photos from Christmas and recent activities in the Gallery, so please take a look.
