CHILD CARE EXTREME WEATHER NOTICE
In the event of extreme weather, LEF Child Care Centres follow

Please check radio or television for closure announcements.
If both TDSB and the TCDSB close all their schools all LEF child care
centres will be closed even if they are not located in school buildings.

We expect that by the end of this year, parents will know more about the work of LEF and have better access to the range of services that we provide.
