OWL Day Care (Occupational, Wellness and Learning) is a privately owned day care for special needs children. OWL is managed and run by Monika and Barbara Wassermeier, sisters who gave up their corporate careers to pursue their passion and dream, helping special needs children and their parents. Monika and Barbara realised the importance and the need in helping the community with a service that is often hard to come by.
Our children’s ages that we care for range from 4 to 14 years but we realise that each child is unique in their own way, so we evaluate each child according to their ability and not their disability to ensure we can assist and take care of them in a way that best suits them.
Our children we care for are unique in their own special way and disability. These children are often not accepted in public or mainstream schools and we create a special place for them where they will feel right at home.
We keep our classes to a maximum of 8 depending on their needs. Each class has their own teacher and facilitator. Children with their own caregivers/facilitators are welcome at our school. As each child is unique an individual development program is set up for each child to monitor and achieve their goals. Progress is monitored and reported and discussed with the parent or parents.
To achieve the above we have to have special equipment and special educational toys to advance their progress. This is where we need your help. We have all different kind of disabilities, e.g. Down’s syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Rett Syndrome, Dravet Syndrome and many other chromosome deficiencies and they all need different learning activities.
OWL Day Care has put together a wish list and we hope that you would be able to assist us in any way. We would appreciate any contribution big or small. See our Wish List attached. Cash donations are also welcome.
We will gladly mention your company on our website or social media should your wish.
At OWL Day Care we also have disadvantage children who apply but their parents cannot afford daycare fees. Retrenchments and lack of jobs in our country is a reality. Should you wish to sponsor a child for any number of months, we will also be very grateful. Kindly contact either Monika or Barbara Wassermeier should you wish to get more information regarding sponsoring a child.
From the bottom of our hearts, our OWL Children and Parents, thank you for your contribution.
Thank you in advance,
