Pennies Day Nursery Ltd

Our 55/60 place nursery was graded by Ofsted as ‘outstanding in all areas’ in February 2016.


Because we previously held an outstanding rating for the same site the excellent outcome placed us among just 1% of settings with this accolade nationally.


Located in a detached property on the edge of the North Downs; an area of outstanding natural beauty Pennies Hockers Lane perfectly balances quiet rural surroundings with the convenience of swift access to main routes, such as the M20.
