The warm inviting atmosphere of Fernwood NRG Child Care Programs offers a gentle transition from home to care. We provide care for children 8 months to 5 years. The vibrant neighbourhood of Fernwood, our experienced and qualified staff, and the families we work with, are the foundation that we build our programming upon. Fernwood is our playground and we like to explore it. We do this by visiting local businesses, going to local parks, and taking walks through our neighbourhood.
We believe in the development of the “whole child.” This focuses on social, physical, intellectual, creative, and emotional growth. Our programs gently allow children to explore, create, question, and work together, while providing a safe, comforting, and warm environment.
Children are encouraged to learn through play experiences, either by themselves or together with other children. Our Educators are available at all times to support the children in their play when necessary. Our Educators also take the time to remind children of the importance of sharing, working together, being respectful to others, being helpful and showing empathy.
Our Educators work in tandem with families to provide the best care possible for your child. We do this by focusing on daily communication between the Educators and families. By having this connection we are able to support children and families towards developmental goals.
Fernwood NRG now offers Fernwood Neighbourhood Out-of-School Care for George Jay Elementary School students in Kindergarten to Grade 5.
