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
