Wee Care Academy is a child day care business that was founded in 1988 by Gaynell and Elias Hendricks.

Gaynell left her management-trainee position at Metropolitan Insurance Company and invested $15,000 of their personal savings in the business, which was originally located in the former Thomas Furnace School at 833 8th Street in the Thomas neighborhood.

The business has grown to 13 centers which she manages along with her oldest daughter, Daagye. Her twins, Shia and Elias Jr, born in 1987, both attended Wee Care. Her grandson, Noah, is currently enrolled.
