Wee Watch Burlington has been servicing the community since 1989. We believe in learning through play and the individual attention that can be given in a small group environment such as a home daycare setting.
We are a multicultural agency with Providers from all around the world. Some of the languages spoken are: English, French, Arabic, Urdu, Pashto, Polish, Spanish, Hindu.
We have Providers throughout Burlington who have been carefully screened to ensure the children are in a safe, stimulating environment. Each Provider completes an initial interview, a physical check up, detailed home assessment plus personal and criminal reference checks prior to children starting with them. Each home receives a monthly unscheduled visit to make sure the policies and rules and regulations of Wee Watch are being followed in addition to the Ministry of Education (Day Nurseries Act). A personalized report is left behind after each visit to let you know we have been in your Providers home to see your child and to give you an update on how your child is developing.
Our Provider’s homes are available between 7am – 6pm with a ten hour daily maximum. We have availability for full and part-time children as well we offer before and after school care. Subsidy is available. To see if you qualify for subsidy call Halton Region at 905-825-6000. We are a phone call away at 905-632-0551 if a Provider or parent has any questions.

I would just like to thank you and the whole team for the care Liam has received over the last 9 years with Lilianne, I can honestly say that there has not been one day that I was concerned for his welfare or that he came home unhappy. I know from many friends and colleagues that day care is not always the great experience that we have had with Wee Watch. I fully recommend your organization to everyone I come across who is looking for home daycare.
The past 4-5 years have been a pleasure and delight for Tyler and our family. We consider Iwona’s a home away from home for Tyler. The comfort and security we’ve felt from Iwona and Wee Watch will not be forgotten throughout our lives. Thank you for all your hard work and we wish you all the best.
