Hi, My name is Monica and welcome to Gospel Oak Care!
Gospel Oak Care is a home-based daycare located in the Longfields area of Barrhaven. We are in a quiet neighbourhood located very close to parks and we are always looking for more places to explore.
I am a former babysitter, lifeguard and English as a Second Language teacher. I love learning, love teaching and love helping raise children. I have a current police records check for the vulnerable sector and current first aid.
I offer play-based, child-led care to children in my home on a full-time basis.
I offer age appropriate activities including: outdoor play, reading, music, crafts, circle time, science, math, cooking, etc. Children love the open spaced basement where they can have gross motor free play time, and the child-sized house and slide in the backyard.
I offer snacks and meals and have experience with dietary restrictions. I have a child with an anaphylactic allergy and have administered an Epi-pen and am comfortable taking children with dietary restrictions. Foods will only be restricted from the premises on an as needed basis.
I offer a smoke-free home where smoking is prohibited inside my home as well as in the childrens’ backyard play area at all times.
We have a friendly elderly golden retriever that loves being around kids.
COVID protocols in place as per Ottawa health regulations
Please note, my own children are enrolled in school and will start the school year attending unless we feel that it is unsafe. Can assist a school-aged child with virtual learning.
