"We love love Natalie! She’s the best and has been my care provider for my 3 children, 2 are in school now however they still want to go to her every chance they get. Little Madeline has adjusted so well and loves her daycare friends. I recommend Natalie a 1000%."
"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."
