In January, our second son will be heading to school and we will unfortunately have to say goodbye to our amazing nanny, so we're working with her to try and find the next lucky family.  She's wiling to start working with another family as soon as November if needed.  She's located centrally (Carlaw and Danforth) and has worked miracles with our two boys...during the school year she takes them to the early learning centers and the summer times are filled with outdoor activities.


Let me know if you are intersted in more information.

I am looking for a evening/weekend caregiver for my 21 month old son starting in January 2015.  I live near Queen & Pape.

I work in the tax industry and my hours start increasing in January, and continue to increase until April 30th.

Exact needs/hours can be adjusted but I'm looking for:

January - 2 evenings/week - daycare pick up (5:00-5:30) until about 8 (my son goes to bed around 7:30 so this would include giving him dinner and putting him to bed).

February - 3 evenings/week - daycare pick up (5:00-5:30) until about 8 (dinner/bed)

March - 3 evenings/week - daycare pick up (5:00-5:30) until about 9 (dinner/bed) and either Saturday or Sunday (10am-5pm)

April -  3 evenings/week - daycare pick up (5:00-5:30)until about 9 (dinner/bed) and either Saturday or Sunday (10am-5pm)

Note that daycare is close by to my home (10 minute walk).

I'm flexible about which evenings.  This can be a set schedule or change week by week based on the caregiver's needs/schedule.

Does any of the Mom's and Dad's have any leads that could assist me?

Thank you.

Holiday Nanny Required!

Our beloved nanny will be on vacation from Dec 17-Jan 3. We are looking to cover some of these dates with a highly recommended temporary nanny. If anyone knows of a seasonal nanny looking for extra work please let me know!

 Essentrics in Leslieville: Tuesday nights, 7:30pm at Chi Junky on 70 McGee street.
A friend of mine is an Essentrics instructor who has just moved to Toronto from Montreal -- Lauren Finkelstein. I tried her class and it's a great workout  ("Essentrics is based on eccentric strengthening which stretches the muscles then strengthens them in the elongated position creating a lean toned body.")
Her class will be on Tuesday nights at 7:30pm, at Chi Junky on 70 McGee street. The cost is $30 for a drop in (t$25 a class for a package) and its maximum 6 people so you can get the experience of a private class with extra attention.
To sign up, people need to email getaddicted (at)
Or contact her personally at laurenfinkelstein89 (at)
Thought I'd spread the word.

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…
