Thanks for stopping by and we hope you find all the information you need but please do get in touch if you have any questions. KidCo are an independent day nursery set in idyllic grounds, which is made up of large patio areas, a playing field with climbing apparatus, slides, sandpit and digging areas and our own woodland with mud kitchens, bug hotels and den making adventures. The children love being outdoors and we have the perfect areas for outdoor learning.
We have been awarded Outstanding in ALL areas by OFSTED.

Inspired, nurtured learning…
We take pride in caring for our environments both inside and out, keeping it well maintained and developing it further to support and extend all areas of learning. It is very important to us at KidCo to encourage and educate the younger generations about our environment and what we can do to as individuals.
We have 5 units for our children
Baby Room is for 0 – 18 months
Toddler Room is for 18 – 24 months
Nursery Room 2 – 3 years
Lower Pre-School Room
Pre-Schools are for our 3 – 5 years
Upper Pre-School Room
The youngest 25 of our Pre-School children will be in Lower Pre-School.
We also offer a Holiday Club (operating during Easter and Summer holidays) for school children between the ages of 4-10.
Our meals are freshly prepared by our Kitchen team, creating rolling menus following the seasons to provide our children with an array of nutrition and flavours. We are also very lucky to have delicious homemade meals prepared on the premisses which enables us to cater for special dietary requirements.
All of our inside spaces are kept to a very high standard of cleanliness and we are extremely proud to hold a 5* rating from environmental health in West Sussex.
Nutrition Awareness for children and education around good nutrition from an early age helps them create and maintain a well balanced, healthy life. Our menus and healthy eating programs can help children attain healthy eating habits through continued support and nurturing.
To celebrate this special milestone we hold an Upper Pre-School Graduation Ceremony.
In front of their classmates each pre-school child is presented with a certificate in the form of a scroll, they’ll be dressed in a graduation gown and cap. They’ll also have a graduation photo, which can be purchased by parents.
We ask each child to share with us any special memories of their time at KidCo, we congratulate them on their achievements before they head off on their new adventure to ‘big school’.
What the Parents Say…
As a working mother, it’s easy to be in constant battle with guilt and worry over leaving your child in a childcare environment. KidCo makes these battles easier, they ensure the children are not only safe but truly cared for. They seem to always have a plan to ensure that the children enjoy each and every day.
Tears and tantrums seem rare and never last (I’ve literally heard my daughter stop tears and start laughing within seconds of being passed over), and regular updates via the handy app, provides reassurance at your fingertips. It’s obvious that the staff are invested in what they do, they genuinely care about the children in their care.
KidCo don’t just keep children safe, they keep them laughing, playing and learning, they often throw in an exciting adventure too.
