Providing Your Child A Home Away From Home.
Since 1984, when Wee Watch first opened its doors, it has proved to be an exceptional, trusted, licensed childcare organization. More than 30 years later, we continue to teach and inspire each child in our care and deliver quality licensed care at affordable prices for the families that make up our communities.
We guarantee each one of our Providers and their families have undergone our extensive screening process before joining our team. Our screening process includes in-home interviews, personal and business reference checks, criminal record checks, Family and Children services check, annual First Aid and CPR training as well as a home site safety check. We also offer and encourage our Providers to participate in ongoing training through workshops held by Wee Watch & Conestoga College throughout the year.
Wee Watch offers full time and part-time care for children six weeks to twelve years of age. We also offer evening, weekend and overnight care. We understand that not every parent works 9-5, and feel that even though your work schedule is outside of the usual daycare hours, you should still have access to affordable, quality daycare.
Wee Watch parents take comfort in knowing that our government approved Registered Early Childhood Educator (R.E.C.E) perform unscheduled monthly visits to each home. Along with our monthly visits, we also perform site safety checks quarterly in each home. We provide a written report to parents after each visit. Each family has access to support from a team of experience child care professionals. We work as a team to ensure that your child has everything they need to equip them to be successful in life. We also offer a backup system that parents can use when their Provider is unavailable due to illness or on holidays.
Subsidized child care is available. Rates are based on the hours of care that is needed per day and the age of the child. Contact us to find out more.
We have a number of Providers located in Kitchener however; our main office is located at 341 Sheldon Drive, Unit #3 in Cambridge. Please feel free to drop in at any time. We would love to answer any questions you may have regarding our program.
If you love working with children, we would love you to work with us! Learn more about becoming a Wee Watch Child Care Provider.
What parents say about Wee Watch…
“First I would like to start with a big thank you for all your help. The 3-daycares we have visited were all great. Each Provider was friendly, had a great set up, and were clean and inviting. We have found the perfect daycare Provider and we are all excited and relieved. She absolutely swept us off our feet. Her charisma and passion for the children has put us at ease in just a few minutes of the interview. She is organized and we felt the program she offers is a better fit for our son. We are so thankful to have come across your company.” ~Sincerely, France, Marissa and Liam
“I have had the privilege of working with the Wee Watch team for over 2 years now. I appreciate the opportunity I have to care for children while making some extra money. The staff at Wee Watch are extremely supportive, friendly, organized, encouraging and are always available to answer any questions and keep me up to date on Ministry guidelines and other daycare requirements. I believe these women are sincere in their desire to care for children and make my job as easy as possible. Thank you Wee Watch staff for your help in making me a success!” ~Joanna R.
“I just wanted to take a minute and let you know about the amazing care we are getting.
My daughter Charlotte has been in care with Diana S. (Dee Dee) for the last 9 months and I can not say enough about her and the loving care that she shows towards Charlotte and the other children in her care.
Smaller ratios have allowed Charlotte to blossom and continue to grow in all aspects of her life.
Dee Dee ensures the children are outside playing as much as possible. In the colder months she attends playgroups with the children. She does educational play with them in her home. At 21 months my daughter is counting to 10 and can tell you her colours. During the summer they went on outings throughout the region and spent many days at African Lion Safari.
I receive pictures of Charlotte playing and learning throughout the day and this helps me feel really connected to what is going on.
She fosters each child’s individual abilities and development and they all flourish in her care.
Dee Dee is an amazing asset to the Wee Watch organization and to our family. Thank you for giving our daughter such loving care!!” ~ Christina R.
“I’ve been with Wee Watch for approximately 4 years at this point and it’s been a fabulous experience. They really value keeping the parents involved with many updates from each visit they do to see my children. I especially like that my children are personally recognized on birthdays and Christmas. It’s a very close community, which I love.
My childcare Provider Diana S. is amazing. My girls consider her family.
It’s a nice feeling knowing my children look forward to going to “Dee Dee’s” place every morning. Diana S. (Dee Dee) goes above and beyond for my girls, sending me updates on how they’re doing throughout the day on her private Facebook group she has created for parents.
My kids also love the outdoor activities she is always planning as well as the playgroups.
They have made great memories and friends through this experience. I wouldn’t have it any other way. Thank you so much for all that you do!” ~Darline
“Since being connected with Wee Watch I’ve been very pleased with them, they made me feel comfortable about putting my 2 children in daycare. The transition went smoothly, considering only family members have watched my children. Wee Watch is a great company that make parents feel comfortable and gives you a peace of mind. I absolutely adore our childcare Provider Dee and my chidren love her. My son is so excited to go to Dee’s everyday to see her and his friends. Since my son has been there he has learned to communicate better interact with other children and has learned a routine. Dee takes her daycare children to programs and little field trips, which I think has made a huge difference in my son. She is a wonderful childcare Provider and has been great since day one. I don’t know where I’d be without her. My daughter enjoys going there also she always has good things to say and always has fun. If I had to give a rating for both Wee Watch and Dee I’d give them a 10 plus out of 10. Keep up the great work Wee Watch and Dee.” ~Natalie
“I just wanted to take a moment to let you know some feedback on our care experience so far.
Our daughter Rhian has been in care with Cherry since the beginning of July.
Honestly, we can’t say enough good things about Cherry. She is such a fabulous care Provider. Not only does she provide a safe home for Rhian and the other children in her care, but she really does go above and beyond.
The kids are out walking every day at least once, most days more than that. She takes the kids to the community centre, to the park and ensures that the time they spend inside is quality, both with her and with each other.
There’s no TV in her daycare space (upstairs) and we feel that Rhian gets solid one on one time with the small ratio in Cherry’s home.
The children are fed home cooked; nutritional food everyday – and I get a full, detailed report each afternoon on specifically how Rhian did during the day.
Beyond all the “normal” things above that we expect from care, Cherry is such a caring person who is giving Rhian and the other children a real sense of love and belonging in her home.
Cherry is dedicated to all the kids in her care and really strives to put her education to practical use to enrich the experience of each child every day.
We really feel that Rhian’s great transition into care is greatly because Cherry has ensured that she gets to know Rhian and fosters her development, sense of self and independence.
She is a fabulous asset to the Wee Watch organization and even more so to our family and our daughter. We are so appreciative and we wanted you to know what a high caliber care Provider you have working with you.” ~Tasia M.
