Meet the Managers

Each Pennies setting has a management team led by a designated manager. Each manager in charge of a Pennies’ setting has significant experience and qualifications within the sector and all have a substantial history at Pennies and are familiar with all areas of our work. They contact and consult each other regularly and are required to keep up to date with all major changes within the sector.

Michaela Stone

Pennies Head Of Operations
Michaela Stone has been with Pennies since 2004 working as manager of our Newnham Court setting. Predictably, the announcement she was leaving that job to take on a company-wide role as Head of Operations generated more reaction and more good wishes than almost anything in the history of our social media (along with an emotional and somewhat messy send-off from her colleagues in the office at Newnham Court).

Michaela is visible across all our settings and will work across the company to provide help and support to all our managers in Kent and East Sussex. Michaela’s passion for working with children remains as strong as ever. She says: “One of the biggest joys for me over the years has been watching the children and their families gaining such a positive experience from the care and education they have received during their time with us. Welcoming them into the Pennies family as babies and watching them grow into young adults, gives great job satisfaction.”
