We have a temporary shared daycare spot available.

Our daughter (10 months old) attends All About Kids at Gerrard & Jones. We have been very happy with the care there. However, we only need 3 days of childcare until January 2015. As a result, there is a spot for an infant 2 days/week up until December 31st 2014.

Monday & Wednesday are available, however we are somewhat flexible if an alternative day is needed.

Please message me for more info or email

* if you are not in need of childcare yourself, please pass this on to other moms you know*

thank you!

Hello Leslievillians! I am opening a home daycare on Queen street across from Jimmie Simpson Recreation Centre. It is a commercial space I am using solely to run my daycare. It has a separate sleep room for your little ones to get a good rest and is close to wonderful parks and libraries. I have my degree in Psychology from Trent University and have been a nanny in the area for 6 years. I have up to date CPR including child and infant CPR and a recent police check. I will be ready to open Monday September the 8th. Lots of wonderful references upon request :) PM me for details.

I also hear good things about Jack of Sports. they operate out of Monarch Park pool (coxwell south of danforth) and a pool at danforth and jones. we did a few rounds of parent & tot with Beach Swim school but opted not to return. feel free to PM me if you want more info

{mybirth} prenatal classes begin Sept 10th at the Toronto Birth Centre!  Registration is open. 

The {mybirth} Workshop thoughtfully combines pregnancy yoga and childbirth education. The 4-week course was developed on a simple premise: pregnancy, birth and parenthood requires your body, heart and mind to be connected and ready.  

{mybirth} focuses on all three and uses yoga postures and class discussions to help prepare you for an active and informed birth.

I'm looking for swimming lesson options for my 2 year old. I've done lessons at Bloorview Holland and loved them, but they have not scheduled any classes for 2-3 year olds on the weekend. I'd also love to find something closer to Leslieville.

I'd love some recommendations. I tried to get into the City of Toronto lessons but had no luck last session so I'm looking into private options. Has anyone tried Felix Swim School?

Just got a great comment from one of the first Lovenotes moms! She brought her first daughter and she'll be bringing her 2nd and 3rd to class soon too!

"I love your classes so much and it gave my daughter an amazing foundation in music!  I have been to so many other music classes and none really compare to yours."

Nuture your child's potential with the gift of music - now in 4 east end locations!

When I launched this site in early 2009, one of the compelling reasons for doing so was that I was struck by how many of the businesses in Leslieville are locally owned and operated.  Another big observation was (and still is) how proud most…
