What parents say about Wee Watch…
“My daughters child care Provider is Rebecca in Cobourg. We have been with “Becca” for over a year now and she has gone above and beyond for us, things I would never expect a Child Care Provider to do and I can’t thank her enough. I love getting photos throughout my day of the fun things they do and I know my daughter just adores her! Thank you for everything you do Becca, we love you!” ~Tiffani K
