About the Provider


Fern Friends is a Certified Family Childcare in NW Corvallis, caring for children aged two through to the start of kindergarten.

Our philosophy and educational plan center around providing a rich, play-based environment to learn kindness, patience, the ability to be gentle or careful as required, the personal value of work, and the skills to communicate and negotiate with each other and the adults at the daycare. Early literacy, music, and creative expression are big parts of our curriculum, and we strongly value outdoor play. We believe that a child's work is play.

At Fern Friends, your children will be writing, drawing, crafting, singing, cooking, telling stories and listening to them. We love reading and encouraging kids to love books, too. Our facility includes a large, fenced-in back yard that we play in every day.

I have used this provider for more than 6 months

Fern Friends is an exceptional child care center. My daughter has flourished under the care of Zed, Leslie and Anne. She often comes home with new songs and stories to share about her adventures from the day. She enjoys the friendships the school has helped cultivate with the other children. She has become more independent since joining the child care center and often wants to show us how she can clear her place after dinner, zip up her jacket, etc. They help foster respect for others and, importantly, oneself. I would recommend Fern Friends to any parent looking for a loving, flexible and nurturing environment for their child.
