Nurseries & Preschools

Chuckles Nurseries Limited opened their first nursery in Truro in 1995; we now operate from our setting at Perranwell Station. We provide a family centred approach to childcare. We offer full or part time care for children aged 3 months to 5 years and free early years education for children aged 2 to 5 years, subject to eligibility.

All children enjoy learning experiences under the revised Development Matters Framework 2021 to enable them to reach their full potential. We are also a flexible provider. Our nursery is conveniently located on the outskirts of Truro whilst still on the main commuter links into Truro and Falmouth. We are well situated to serve the Royal Cornwall Hospital, County Hall and Falmouth University (University of Exeter, Penryn Campus).

We operate from our setting at Perranwell Station

Open Monday to Friday excluding bank holidays, for 51 weeks per annum,

Chuckles Nursery and Pre-school at Station Road, Perranwell Station is situated in a converted Methodist Chapel in the centre of the village. The nursery opened in August 2001 and is registered for 50 children.

The nursery provides care for children from a wide catchment area including Stithians, Falmouth, Ponsanooth and Mylor as well as the village itself. Being situated close to the A39 (Truro to Falmouth road) we are just 2 minutes away from the Perranarworthal junction. This means that we are conveniently situated for the Penryn Campus of Falmouth University.

You will find a friendly, experienced team of staff that includes a qualified teacher to care and nurture your child.
We also offer a breakfast and after school club during term time for 4 -11 year olds, from 8-8.50am and 3 – 5.45pm hrs. We operate a walking bus to and from Perranarworthal CP School to our setting. We recognise that school age children have already had a very structured day, so we offer activities that allow them to choose what they want to do and if they want to relax then that is alright too! Activities include art and craft, Lego, books, PS2, Wii, table-top football and traditional board games.
