I have no idea how to find a pediatrician. Most of us spend a lot of time in walk-in clinics and emergency rooms, which is also where a lot of people have to do their routine check-ups and shots. Hopefully we can convince some of our little ones to become doctors and fill in the gap, but in the meantime...



BTW, my oldest is turning 3 in June and my baby just turned 1! We do not live near Villeray though. It's a pretty nice area for families. Good luck!

Hello Alison,
Thanks for the info. We just rented an apt in Villeray. My oldest will be 3 in July & the baby is 7 mos. I'm going to start calling the daycares in nour area this week.
Do you have any advice for finding a ped doc?
Thanks!
Kate

Daycare spots are scarce out here. The prices are good but spots are hard to find. When you know the area you will live in, get your name on waiting lists of all of the places you are interested in. Then go to www.magarderie.com to find something that will be available when you need it (you can search by postal code). How old is your little one?



Generally, subsidised daycare is ideal. Not only because it is only $7/day, but because there are strict government guidlines that they must follow, including curriculum. They also have surprise visits to check up on them.



You will probably find that the language at the daycare depends greatly on the language of the part of town you are in.
