They also continue their training through workshops and conferences all year round to further enhance their skills.
With Wee Watch, parents receive guidance and support from a team of highly skilled and experienced child care professionals. Our government approved Registered Early Childhood Educators (R.E.C.E) are excellent resources to both parents and Providers. They perform unscheduled, monthly visits to the Provider’s homes to ensure ongoing child safety and development, and provide a written report to parents after each visit.
Wee Watch also ensures parents have worry free uninterrupted child care with a reliable backup system in place for days when a Provider is unavailable due to illness or on holidays.
Rates vary based on the child’s age, the hours needed per day and number of days per week. Subsidized child care is available. Contact us to find out more.

What parents say about Wee Watch…
“Wee Watch and our Provider Sana have been amazing. And we are eternally grateful for all that has been done for our family and especially Emma. I want to personally thank you for everything that you have done and can’t tell you enough how much I’ve loved our experience with Wee Watch. I would be honoured to recommend Wee Watch!” ~ Amy
“I honestly could not be happier with Elaine, she is such an amazing person. She is very easy to talk to and has the sweetest demeanour. Lily absolutely loves her; she is happy going to daycare in the morning and is happy when she comes home. Lily is doing so well and she loves library day on Fridays. Elaine takes amazing care of her and l feel comfortable leaving her with Elaine. I think for me it was a harder adjustment than it was for Lily. We made the right choice with Elaine and Wee Watch. If Wee Watch ever did an outstanding Provider award then l would say Elaine deserves it completely.” ~ Anne

Thank you for suggesting Dawn to us as our childcare provider.” ~ Amanda C.
“We are so happy with our childcare Provider, Sana! Her family has become our family and I think she loves our son, Dom as much as she loves her own kids sometimes.
