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.
