"All the staff members ... have been pleasant, helpful and extremely professional..."

"Our son Ben has been with Wee Care since he was 11 months old and continues to learn and thrive at WCB. He is our only child so we were a bit nervous starting him in day care. The staff at WCB made the transition very smooth for us. When he was young they worked on skills such as “tummy time. Now that he is older they spend time with him playing, looking at books and teaching him socialization skills. All the staff members ... have been pleasant, helpful and extremely professional. Ben’s teachers take a personal interest in his happiness and well-being. It is nice to know he is such good hands when we can’t be with him."
