Penenden Heath Pre-School

We are a friendly, community run Pre-School which has been established for over 50 years. We offer fun and education to children aged between 2½ and school age (we have a limited number of spaces available for children who are funded to join us from age 2). We were inspected by Ofsted in January 2023 where we were graded 'Good'.

We meet daily at the Social Hall located behind the tennis courts on Penenden Heath.  There are parking facilities on the heath and a short walk through the pretty gardens provides a safe walk for you and your child to the Pre-School. Penenden Heath Pre-School and Social Hall have a no smoking policy therefore smoking is not permitted on the premises.

Penenden Heath Pre-School’s aims to educate the whole child through play.  We do not teach the children in our care to read, write or do sums. We do, however, plan a structured curriculum to lay the foundations for these basic skills, using a wide range of play activities and experiences.  


We are interested in hearing from individuals passionate about childcare who could work with us on a flexible basis to cover staff absence. 

NO QUALIFICATIONS NECESSARY, but experience working in childcare would be of great advantage.
