Apparently Angelgate Day Care at Runnymede United Church has just added a bunch of spaces. http://www.toronto.ca/children/dmc/w...creg12129.html Tell her, Good Luck!
Apparently the Forest Hill Loblaws cafe is very mom/kid friendly and great for people watching! My friend highly recommends it!
Welcome to Toronto! I've been here for 5 years and I love it (orig. from BC). My DD is only 21 months old so we're still learning about the fun (and free) things to do with her in the hot summer months. Try to get your hands on a Little Paper. It's a monthly paper designed for families and lists all of the great things to do in the city with kids.
