Weekly Playgroup @ the Nature Playscape

CEC has introduced a self-led program: Weekly Playgroup @ the Nature Playscape. Children of all ages are invited to spend some time playing in our woodland playscape. Make sure you come dressed for the weather!

Our trails and Nature Playscape are open every day dawn to dusk. Playtime could be any time, but the goal of the playgroup is to create a coordinated time for parents and guardians to bring their kiddos out for group socialization and outdoor play. The more the merrier! This program is meant to be fun and casual so that everyone can move at their own pace and come and go as they please.

For those who arrive at 10 a.m., a staff member or volunteer will be available to lead everyone to the Nature Playscape and give a brief welcome and introduction.

Date: Every Friday

Time: 10 AM

Location: CEC Prairiewood Entrance 1730 Airport Rd., Centerville, Indiana

Fee: Free

Registration: Not needed, Informal program

Weekly Playgroup @ the Nature Playscape. It’s a great time for play time!
