Penny Rowlands

Hello.  My name is Penny and I am a mother of three boys.  I joined the preschool in 2008 when my youngest son started here and have been the Forest School Leader since 2014.  The Forest School ethos of child-lead learning combined with my passion of nature and children is inspirational for me.  


I also deliver programmes to teenagers in secondary schools, have fun with my own forest fun sessions in the woods and I am Chair of Chew Valley School PTA.  I also love to spend time with my family, keeping fit through dancing, cycling and walking my dog.
