Fern Bank Private Day Nursery in Fulwood provides high-quality childcare and education for children aged from birth to five years.
Staff hold NVQs in Childcare, paediatric first aid certificates, safeguarding training and have all undergone enhanced DBS checks. Modern security systems are in place to ensure children’s safety, including CCTV in all rooms and secure door entry.
The nursery and pre-school - situated opposite Preston College - is separated into two spacious buildings: one for babies up to the age of 2, and another with separate playrooms for toddlers and pre-schoolers.
Fern Bank's baby rooms are filled with soothing rocking chairs, cosy cots, fun dens and stimulating toys. Soft tigers, snakes, elephants and lions await the children in a spectacular Jungle Room filled with sparkling lights and giant ferns.
The separate pre-school building is filled with exciting educational toys and resources, including a mini-kitchen where children can cook in a real life kitchen that's just their size.
As well as newly refurbished playrooms, the nursery has a fabulous grassy outdoor area which comes complete with tunnels, an enchanted cabin, a water wall, bug hotel, mud kitchen and sandpit. Children are encouraged to play and learn in the outdoor area every day, come rain or shine.
The Nursery Chef serves freshly prepared meals and snacks from a healthy seasonal menu bursting with fruit, vegetables, meat and fish. The delicious menu can be altered to suit any special dietary requirements.
Fern Bank's qualified team of childcare professionals provide care and Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) learning activities based on each individual’s child’s likes, interests and needs.
