Our Educational Curriculum
We recently re-launched our new and improved Play & Learn program – a series of educational booklets that are exclusive to Wee Watch. We gathered a team of childhood experts including 3 Ontario certified teachers and 2 RECEs to build our new program with the goal of kindergarten readiness in mind! Our educational program is available to all children in care, providing your child the opportunity to develop their literacy, numeracy, fine motor, science, and social studies skills.Read More
"We started early looking for our second home for our daughter. A friend recommended we try Wee Watch. We called Wee Watch and explained what we were looking for, but due to my daughter having transient neutropenia we needed a little more attention to environment and care for her health. The office experience was quick and they were attentive. We visited three providers, and the moment we met Ana we knew our search was over. Ana goes above and beyond anything we could have imagined for our child. Ana incorporates all cultures in her programming. I am so grateful to have found such a great provider"
"Wee Watch's support and expertise as we transitioned to a new daycare with their agency was invaluable. They were helpful and responsive, finding us placement within hours of initial contact. We are thrilled to have found a new home daycare with the added sense of safety/communication that comes with working through Wee Watch."
"When we first signed up with Wee Watch they set up a couple of appointments with Providers in our area which took a good part of the stress away. Our little one fell in love with Wendy right away! The option for back up daycare, especially ones willing to work with allergies was such a relief! Pam’s reports when she visits Wendy and the kids are a nice touch. Gavin in the office is great for email response when you forget the schedule or a policy detail. They say it takes a village and that couldn't be more true!!"
