Let WEE WATCH assist you in finding the perfect Provider for you and your child. Wee Watch has been in Northumberland County since 2003 and holds a Purchase of Service contract with the County.

WEE WATCH helps to ensure that the program in each home is designed to meet the individual needs of your child at every stage of their development by meeting or exceeding the Child Care and Early Years Act.

Our carefully screened Providers receive a wide variety of programming resources such as Wee Learn Program, Play and Learn Booklets, website activities, theme guides, Together Wee Can programming and Activity Handbooks.

We offer safe, secure, nurturing homes where your child will learn, develop and have fun even when you’re not there.

As partners, WEE WATCH, parents, and the Providers work together to achieve their common goal to build positive, caring and responsive relationships with each child.


Wee Watch Parent Provider Rebecca

Rebecca has been a childcare provider with Wee Watch for the past six years and is a mother to three wonderful children. She is located in Cobourg and provides a safe environment, nutritious snacks and lunches and encourages learning in a fun environment.

Wee Watch was proud to be open throughout the pandemic, offering care to thousands of families that required care. As an essential service, we will continue to be open regardless of other business closures, operating with enhanced health and safety protocols and as always with a small number of children in care. We have childcare spaces available and are also looking for Providers to join our team. We will get through this together.

“I am very happy with my Provider Savannah. She is fun and happy and my son absolutely adores her. She takes him out to the museum, Funvilla, and they play outside when weather permits. Everything he does with her is teaching him fun learning. The amount of effort she puts into my son and how happy he is when I pick him up everyday is a direct reflection on her. I would recommend my Savannah to anyone needing care for their child. She awesome!”


Ben S.,

“Our family has been incredibly happy with Wee Watch, as well as our home daycare provider, Tonya. She is wonderful with my 2 year old son. We appreciate the outdoor play, updates through the day and meal plans posted ahead of time. There is little to no screen time, and an array of activities that encourage creativity as well as improve motor skills. I cannot say enough good things about this woman, and this organization.”


Tiffani K.,

“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!”
