IT TAKES A TEAM
To provide the high-quality childcare environment your child deserves, we know it takes a team of qualified and dedicated people,
which is why each Wee Watch Agency has a professional childcare team focused on supporting parents and Providers throughout their childcare experience.
THE WEE WATCH AGENCY
AGENCY SUPERVISOR – the Supervisor is trained in the Wee Watch system and Ministry regulations, covering all aspects of providing safe, educational home childcare. They are there to support parents from the application process to the Provider selection process and throughout their childcare stay. They manage the operations and oversee the requirements to ensure all childcare needs are met.
HOME VISITOR (HV) – There is also a Home Visitor who is a Registered Early Childhood Educator (RECE) with licensed childcare work experience. They have a strong theoretical background in child development and are skilled in planning and delivering inclusive play-based learning and care programs for children of all ages. Their role is to support the Providers in the day-to-day care of the children. They train Providers, monitor the homes and child’s well-being with regular, unannounced visits. The CCEYA requires one home visit every 3 months but our HV’s visit homes a minimum of once a month.
CHILDCARE PROVIDER – Wee Watch Providers are an elite group who have undergone extensive screening and training requirements to pass Ministry standards and Wee Watch requirements that include:
- Child Development and Child Guidance of young children
- Educational and age-appropriate activities
- Home Safety
- Health and Nutrition
- Rules and Regulations
OUR HIGH STANDARDS
Wee Watch’s high standards include careful screening of Providers and
their families. They undergo a strict assessment and evaluation process and are required to:
- Complete detailed interviews to demonstrate exceptional child care
- Prove the ability to provide children with a warm, safe, and stimulating
environment through a comprehensive Wee Watch home assessment
- Provide a physician’s health report
- Pass personal and criminal reference checks for themselves and their family members

Providers must participate in 10 hours of Professional Development annually to continually upgrade their skills. Wee Watch provides them with access to workshops focused on nutrition, Child Development, Child Guidance, safety, and programming.
