Stay N Play is a Private Family Day Home located in Arbour Lake, NW Calgary (close to Citadel, Tuscany, Royal Oak, Rocky Ridge, Ranchlands, Hawkwood, Scenic Acres, Hamptons).

We follow a Montessori philosophy.


Our day home is specially built with child-size shelving and furniture and I have an excellent choice of books, puzzles, art and craft activities, construction toys, sensory activities, music and outside fun.

Stay N Play is a non-smoking environment.

About Me

I am Gabriele, mother of two beautiful girls (10 years old and 2.5 years old). I have over 5 years of experience working with children in a school environment as well as special needs children as a respite worker.

I live with my husband Andre and my two beautiful daughters, Nicole and Anne. My husband works for the City of Calgary. 

I am a certified Child Development Assistant by the Government of Alberta. I am certified in Standard Child Care First Aid & CPR. Both myself and my husband have Police Clearances and Intervention Record Check which are available for viewing.

As a Day Home provider, my goal is to provide a safe and happy place for children where they can learn and grow socially, physically, emotionally and intellectually at their own pace. I believe children learn through play and benefit from a structured yet flexible schedule and are happiest when one on one attention is provided. I offer a safe environment and only accept a limited number of kids in my day home to keep a high quality of care.
