A babysitter twist

Leaside is the launch neighbourhood of an innovative, student-run business with a new twist on an old challenge – finding a good babysitter.

The service is called Sitto, a smartphone web application scheduled to begin in April for all Toronto.

Why Leaside?

“Almost half of our team comes from the Leaside and North York area and they all have families, grandparents, aunts and uncles all residing in the Leaside neighbourhood,” says Alex McKinney, vice-president of human resources.

“And Leaside is a perfect launch neighbourhood because of closeness to subway and bus stations making it accessible from all of Toronto,” she added.
