childcare picture LEF began offering child care in the early 1980s to better allow parents to support their families by working. Since opening our first centre we have expanded to more than 30 child care centres and before and after school programs located across Toronto. Through a strong partnership with the Toronto Boards of Education we opened many of these inside schools, which better meets the needs of children and parents as services are co-located. LEF is now one of the largest providers of child care services in the City of Toronto. Check More.

For 30 years, we have offered a wide array of training courses, each of which is constantly evolving in step with the needs of the community and of local business.

They are also highly interactive and provide theoretical and practical knowledge. Check More.
