About Pennies

Pennies is a family-run company established in 1999, offering award-winning childcare across Kent and Sussex. The unique vision of our founder puts the experience of the individual child at the heart of everything we do with curiosity and adventure making new memories every day. Forest school activities have been part of our work for several years and – from April 2023 – Pennies are thrilled to announce the start of our own unique 20 Acre forest school situated in the North Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and equipped for all adventures in all weathers. Our work linked to sustainability and the environment has led us to agree with research findings suggesting forest school education benefits children in many ways: including confidence building, development of physical skills and self-motivation. Our Forest School is open for pre-school aged children aged 3 years - 4 years and currently is only available for  places all year round. You can book on for one day a week, two, three or four days.

What makes us so special?

Pennies Forest School combines the best in outdoor learning with Pennies’ own commitment to sustainability and the environment. As winners of the nationally recognised Eco-Schools Green Flag and the highest awards available from Kent Wildlife Trust Pennies has a history of introducing children to the natural world in ways that engage and excite, bringing learning alive within a living classroom. Our Eco-Schools awards focus on the certifying that centres, like day nurseries, have achieved a high standard of operation in sustainability, our Wilder Kent Gold Awards recognise innovative practice and ambition in the same area.
