Children's Day Nursery in Stocksfield, Northumberland

At Fern Hollow Day Nursery we believe all children deserve the best start in life. Our part in this is to provide the best care and early education for your child. For you we want to provide the advice and support you may need in the early years of your child’s life.

Our aims are simple but vital; they remain the core of everything we do:

They are
  • To provide a happy, safe and enabling environment for your child.
  • To support learning through a variety of fun, stimulating and engaging activities.
  • To respect each others individual needs and to encourage children to respect each other.
  • To develop in each child confidence, self esteem and independence.
  • To build strong relationships between children, parents and staff.

“Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.” Garrison Keillor

In May 2015 Ofsted conducted their latest inspection at nursery. We are very pleased with our latest grading and we hope you are too. You can read the full report at 

In the spring term we trialed parent helpers across all of the age groups. our parent volunteers were a huge success and we intend to continue with this throughout the year. If you, as one of our parents, would like to volunteer please drop us an email. We love having parents and the community contribute to our setting. If you have a particular skill or talent you would like to share and invest please contact us.
