Our Infant Program focuses directly on the individual needs of each infant in our care. The program has a flexible daily schedule that allows for different feeding times, multiple naps, and outside play.
Our Infant Educators believe it is of the utmost importance for infants to explore the world around them. Your little one will enjoy story time, indoor and outdoor play as well as many different sensory experiences daily.
Our Infant Educators focus on supporting infants to develop a foundation of skill sets that will help them be successful in the programs to come. Some skills the children learn are, sitting, walking, eating with a spoon, and self-regulation. Developing these skills, and many more, will support their transition into our Toddler Program where they will be able to be successful in their new adventures.
Our Toddler Program continues to build upon the developmental skills learned in the Infant Program and over time, helps prepare them developmentally for the 3/5 year program. The Toddler Program while still maintaining flexibility has a more consistent set routine.
Our Educators use positive role modeling to assist children through the daily routine and play. Our toddlers enjoy circle time, music and movement, art, science, indoor and outdoor play, and sensory experiences daily.
Our Educators have created a space that provides a fun, warm, exciting, and nurturing environment that allows toddlers to grow at their own pace.
Wait List (Currently Closed as Full)
Fernwood NRG Child Care Programs are currently fully enrolled. Our waitlist is currently full and we are no longer adding families onto the waitlist. The status of the waitlist will be updated on this page in September 2017. Fernwood NRG has an infant waitlist (8-18months) and a 3-5yr waitlist. All waitlist inquiries should go through reception, 250-381-1552 ext. 100.
Please note: You are not assigned a number when putting your name on the waitlist. Putting your child’s name on our waitlist does not confirm registration.
Offer of Space:
Families will be offered a space according to the age of their child when the space becomes available and the developmental level of the children already enrolled. When a space becomes available, families will be notified immediately. We will book a meeting and a tour. After the meeting, families will be given 48 hours to secure their child’s spot. If we do not hear from you within 48 hours, we will move to the next family on the waitlist.
Tours of the child care centres are only offered when you family is being offered a space. A centre tour is an important step for families. They provide the chance to see the program in action and ensure that it is a good fit for your child/family. Tours also provide families with the opportunity to meet the educators and ask any questions that you may have.
