unavailable during COVID 19 New Occasional Care Availability In Established Home Daycare

I am happy to announce that I am now offering occasional care.  I provide childcare Mon - Fri 7:00-5:00  I know that there is a lot of need for part time regular childcare and also a need for an occasional few hours or day of care for appt., play dates etc.  With the current schedule of daycare friends I have I am able to provide care on an occasional basis.  For this service to be successful I require that you come for an interview to make sure that the services I provide are what you need as well that your child will fit in with the children and routine that I currently provide.  It would be unfair to my regular daycare family if this service would become disruptive to there usual day.   It is best that you check a few days prior when possible for availability dates. But I also understand that emergencies happen and you need someone right away.  Don't hesitate to call 613-542-4493 0r text 613- 572-4494.  If I have the space I would be glad to help.

Rates:  Regular daycare $35/day  Part Time 3 days/ week guarenteed paid  Two children $60  No half day rate.

Occasional Care Rates:

$7 per hour anything over 4 hrs is a full day $35

$10 hr for two after 4 hrs $60  for up to 9 hour day


Payment can be done by e transfer prior to care or on cash on drop off

pick up/ drop off  must be by 11:30 or after 3 pm  I do not allow pick up/drop off during nap time.

Please note with new regulations it is very difficult to offer this service especially to under two children.


Ladies Catherine is a hands down wonderful woman and child care provider. Id recommend her to anyone! Thank-you for helping my family and I when we needed someone the most.

 Cathy has been taking care of my son for almost a year. I was fearful putting Kane in daycare due to his autism. Doctors suggested I look for respite care and that possibly being exposed to other children on a regular basis might help him progress. This in fact did happen. Kane has been in Cathy's care for almost a year, he now has an extensive vocabulary, sings, dances, mimics actions & interacts with the other children. Kane thoroughly enjoys his time with Cathy & the other children. I am so thankful to have Cathy & her family in Kane's life.

 I have been bringing my son, who is now 7.5 months old, to Cathy for the last few months (2-3 times a week) using her occasional drop-in care. The experience has been a very positive one, especially because she is so experienced with children and has a very relaxed approach to her childcare. He is a fussy little guy and hasn’t done very well with other childcare givers but he almost immediately warmed to Cathy and enjoys his visits there. She does a fantastic job of getting him down for a nap and feeding him all his food. I trust her to care for him and it’s been very pleasant interacting with Cathy, as well. Her availability for drop-ins has also been fantastic. She’s even helped me out several times last minute. She’s a wonderful lady and an even better childcare provider. I definitely recommend her daycare.

My son has been to Cathy's for before and after school care and PA days for the last several months. He absolutely loves going there and looked forward to it every day he went, so I knew he was in good hands! Cathy's entire family is very welcoming and make the kids in her care feel like part of the family. Cathy was able to work with my hours that changed almost every week and was willing to accommodate what I needed every single time. I won't hesitate to have my son go back any time I need daycare in the future!
