Hi, we are looking for occasional babysitters. We have two girls aged 9 and 3. No regular dates just looking to add to our list of sitters as we've had some of our regulars move on recently. I can be reached at

Jamie's Yoga Mamas is fantastic! Took her class with my boys and highly recommend it! More movement with music instead of holding poses so it really keeps the littles ones interested!

Hi everyone, I'm looking for agency recommendations for hiring a live-in nanny... for those of you who have gone the live-in route, which agency did you use? Looking for the good, the bad, and the ugly! We're looking to have a nanny in place September 2013ish.

Also would love to chat with someone about the ins and outs of being an employer - stuff to keep in mind, how it works, etc.

I am looking for an occasional babysitter possibly twice or three times a week, during the day. We live at Queen and Leslie and we have a 8 month old daughter. Please email me at

Thank you Elisa & Marianne! Lots of things to think about and since it's early days, I thought I'd keep myself busy trying to get ahead of the game. Thanks so much for your super helpful feedback.

Caroline, if you're planning to go back to work after a traditional maternity leave I would put your name on EVERY daycare's wait list. The community is actually losing 10 infant spots as Win Harris is closing their doors December 31 so your choices are shrinking. will give you a menu where you can search licensed centres and home daycares. Call all of them and put your name on their list, not just the ones closest to you. At your leisure go check a few of them out and see what the different ones provide. You will start to get a sense of what you want. Most have a 1-2 year wait but if you get to the top you stay at te top til you're ready for a spot. I put my name on lists when I was 3 months along with each of my boys. With my first I got to the top of one list only and that spot was offered to me about 3 weeks before I went back to work. With my second, I was offered a spot at 2 different daycares with only 4 days before I was scheduled to return to work.
It's not too early. Start calling.

Leslieville Local Business Marketing - 10 ways to use

Posted by Nolin (Admin) on February 3, 2011 at 12:00pm 4 Comments

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…
