Nature Playgroup

Nature Playgroup has been running for the past 7 years at Chyan Community Field in Halvasso, near Penryn.  It is run by Alice Wall who set it up to give her boys and the wider community a space to play outdoors with their children and Vic Meincken, who has been involved at Chyan for a long time and whose own children have enjoyed many years, growing up in this space.


It has now grown into a wonderful twice weekly, term-time group for children aged 0-5 and their carers.  During the 2 hour weekly session families can play in the mud kitchen, help pick wild food and herbs for tea, build a fire, adventure through willow tunnels and be creative with the seasonally themed activities.

All sessions run in 6 weekly bookable slots, current availability shown below, please email to be added to waiting list if no availability shows.

These sessions are non-funded and Alice has done has best to keep these spaces within affordable range and therefore Nature Playgroup makes no profit.  We rely on our own hard work to keep the space clear and enjoyable and organise regular volunteer  days.  As busy mothers and workers ourselves we always appreciate extra help.  If you feel you have not much money but do have time available, I would be more than happy to arrange a transfer of your time instead of payment for a playgroup.
