What parents say about Wee Watch…
“I can’t be it’s this time already! Abby’s last day at Ghazala’s will be September 4.
It’s been an amazing experience these last couple of years. Although, we won’t be leaving the wee watch family 100 percent yet, thanks to Ellie, we are surprised how quickly this day came. Our little Abby is growing up! She has grown leaps and bounds at Ghazala’s. She’s learned so much and made some amazing friends. And although she’ll meet new friends at school and learn new things, she will definitely remember all the great memories.
We want to thank wee watch for supporting the growth of our daughter and supporting our family in the recent months. And we want to thank Ghazala. She has been an amazing provider. Never once have I been concerned about Abby or Ellie. She has helped Abby grow in so many ways and Abby is truely lucky to have spent so much time with Ghazala and her family.
Thank you again so much! And we’ll definitely be staying in touch on Abby’s transition to school.” ~Sabrina and Mike
“Finding a reliable child care Provider can be very stressful for parents. Entrusting our precious children with unknown Providers can be at times worrisome. However, Wee Watch’s supervisor, Gayle O’ Connor, has relieved us of all these worries and any stressful situations. We have been very lucky to have the placement of our three boys with the most wonderful and caring Providers with Wee Watch for the last three years. My heartfelt gratitude goes to Ayan for the long time care for my boys. My little one has grown from a baby to a confident school going kid in her care. The two older boys have grown to be very disciplined with the motherly affection and pure love from Ayan during the time they spent with her at after school care. I also thank Nosheen and Zainab for the short term back up care that they provided with utmost sincerity and affection. Now that the boys are moving forward, we are thankful for the very positive impact that our Wee Watch Providers have had in our boys’ lives. A big THANK YOU to you all!” ~Ishrat
“Our daughter was with Wee Watch since the age of two until she joined junior kindergarten. At Wee Watch childcare staff are loving and compassionate, and our daughter never felt like she was away from home. We are exceptionally satisfied with their home child care and strongly recommend other parents to consider Wee Watch for their child care needs.”~Lilavati S. & Jhadeswar M.
“Madiha has been an exceptional Provider. I cannot thank her enough for all of the love, and care she has given my Alex since day one. Alex loves her and her kids so much; I know he will miss her. Alex went into Medie’s care as a shy 1 year old and will leave a confident, smart and curious toddler all thanks to Madiha. Thank you.”~Isabel
“I just wanted to let you know how amazing our childcare Provider, Ghazala has been. She spent the entire year doing the Together Wee Can Celebrates Canada 150 activities, science activities and the Wee Watch Play & Learn booklets, as well as sending us photos of the kids doing these activities. It is amazing how much she accomplished each month! I remember in January 2017 when Ghazala gave us a souvenir case to put all of the Together Wee Can Celebrates Canada 150 arts and crafts in, and now its full! I took the liberty of laying out everything Abby did this past year, with the exception of the food of course, and took some pictures. Photos feature my youngest, a future Wee Watch participant. As you can see, quite a lot was accomplished!
I’ve already sent my appreciation to Ghazala. I just wanted you to know as well
Happy New Year and looking forward to the upcoming year’s activities.” ~Sabrina
“We want to thank Wee Watch, especially the supervisor Gayle, for your tremendous support during our search for Anthony-Jakob’s daycare through Wee Watch.
Gayle, you went above and beyond to get to know our son and his needs. You listened to our concerns and you helped brainstorm ways in which we could make accommodations.
We feel incredibly fortunate to have had your assistance. Your kind words, enthusiastic attitude and genuine interest in finding a spot that would work for our son, demonstrates your commitment to your field of work.
We appreciate your kindness and warmth throughout the process as well as your knowledge and dedication.” ~Susan and Andre
“I was very happy with all of the time Avery spent with Wee Watch. Every Provider Avery had was excellent (full time or back-up) and she always came home happy and her vibrant self. Bhavna was amazing, so loving; warm and very dedicated to the children, I knew Avery was in the best environment the first year of daycare (when I went back to work and couldn’t be there). Seema also did an amazing job and made her feel very loved. She has been randomly asking me about visiting Seema so I know Seema did a wonderful job. I’ve recommended Wee Watch to quite a few friends/colleagues since I started with you in 2015. It was also great getting the reports from you every few weeks about what Avery was learning and how she was progressing. The program is very well structured and I am very impressed with how the process went from beginning to end, it was seamless.” ~ Heather
“While in Muhan’s care Jacob has flourished and grown into quite an outgoing young boy. His daycare experience has been nothing but positive and he has forged close relationships with Muhan and her entire family. Sadie was an excellent playmate for Jacob, and her parents were like-minded so we were able to easily coordinate our efforts. Overall our experience with our Provider, Muhan, and Wee Watch, has been outstanding.” ~ David C.
“As our youngest child eagerly awaits the start of full day kindergarten in the Fall, we find ourselves sadly saying goodbye to Wee Watch. Throughout our five plus years with Wee Watch, I have been beyond impressed with their professionalism and care of our children. Wee Watch allowed us to have our children in a small home care environment where they got more personalized attention, but were also able to interact with other children. Wee Watch provides peace of mind to parents by doing all the reference checks and police record checks of providers, ensures they have first aid and CPR certifications, and offers providers workshops, consistent age-appropriate programs, and a toy library to ensure that the providers are well-trained, prepared for different children and situations, and that the children are constantly challenged by new and exciting toys. There are also unscheduled monthly visits to provider homes to ensure that the children are happy and well adjusted to their environment. It in fact becomes a nice way for Wee Watch to check in and marvel at your child’s development. If there are ever any problems, local supervisor, Gayle O’Connor, is quick to jump in and find a quick and workable solution for all. Her support has been tremendous. In truth, Wee Watch provides all the reassurances you need as a first time parent, including ensuring that you have a back-up provider available if ever your provider is ill, on holiday, or otherwise unavailable. I have recommended Wee Watch to other new parents throughout the past 5 years, and I would continue to recommend it to anyone. It’s bittersweet for me that we are leaving Wee Watch, especially our provider, Shaymaa Neama. I feel like we have become a family over this time, united in our love for my children, and I will miss Shaymaa, Gayle, Cathy, and the entire Wee Watch community.” ~Karen M
“I want to take this opportunity to thank you for everything that you and the Wee Watch team have done to ensure that the quality and standard of care for our children is nothing short of the best. There are no words to describe the comfort and reassurance the team provides and as a result we continue to highly recommend your services to others. Looking forward to talking to you before the end of April.” ~Christine & Doug
“My family and I have been with Wee Watch since January 2015! Our first time with a home daycare and Wee Watch couldn’t have matched us with a better Provider. Zeina has been amazing! Over the last year my family and I have gotten to know her and she is the most genuine and loving person I know. She loves working with children and truly treats them as her very own. Alyssa has formed a special bond with Zeina and drop off has always been easy. Since the transition to Wee Watch, Alyssa has been saying a lot of words, saying “please” and “thank you” and connecting with other children, it is so sweet to see this in such a short time frame. We will miss the close family connection we have with Zeina. Thank you Gayle. All the best to you and your agency.” ~Anna
“As a first time mom, I was nervous about leaving my son with anyone but family. However our Wee Watch Provider was so caring and kind to our little boy that she quickly became family. It was amazing to see what he learned each day and the crafts he made have become keepsakes. I’ll miss the close relationship we had with our Provider when he starts school in September and we’ll miss Wee Watch too!” ~Claudia
“We Watch changed our lives! Our children are everything to us, and allowing someone else to help raise them, can be scary and challenging. We contacted We Watch and immediately knew. The time and care they took to ensure we found the right fit for our children was amazing. New to Ottawa, Gayle our local We Watch supervisor walked us through step by step, which took out the worry and stress from this process. I would recommend this agency to anyone, and I have. Thank you Wee Watch.” ~The Patton Family
