What parents say about Wee Watch…
“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.”
“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.”

“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.”
“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!”
“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.”
