At Fernwood NRG, we are driven by the Early Learning framework, forming the very foundation of our practice. Our primary focus is on creating an inclusive and nurturing environment that revolves around the child and their family unit. Recognizing that play is a vital avenue for learning, we are wholeheartedly dedicated to providing care that encourages experimentation and transformation. 

At the heart of our mission lies the commitment to establish a high-quality care program that cultivates compassion, fosters inquisitive learning, and instills a deep love for young children. 

At Fernwood NRG, we are deeply committed to delivering exceptional care for families, and this commitment starts with our team of dedicated and passionate educators. Our carefully assembled team comprises a Director of Child Care, Infant-Toddler Educators, Early Childhood Educators and Assistants, Responsible Adults, Inclusion Support Workers, and an Administrative Coordinator. Their expertise and unwavering dedication to quality care form the cornerstone of our services. We take great pride in providing a nurturing environment where each child can flourish, inspiring a love for learning and fostering a sense of wonder in every young mind we have the privilege to nurture.

Wait Pool Registration FAQs

Though we wish we could meet the incredible need for more child care spaces in our community, demand for licensed child care far exceeds the number of spaces that are available. Unfortunately, we cannot provide a time frame for when, and if, a spot will be available for your child. We strongly recommend all families consider joining as many wait pools for child care as possible.
