Perhaps no single phrase causes such extreme and diverse reaction than “Back to School”. For most kids, the dreaded three words means the end of summer fun, sleep-ins and no homework. For most parents, there are no three, and more anticipated, better words as regular routines can begin again.

Just where that back to school takes place is amongst the most important decisions parents make, and the neighbourhood of XO Condos at King and Dufferin gives them plenty of excellent choices. With its wide variety of suite sizes, and offering one to three-bedroom layouts, young parents with toddlers or established families with high school-aged kids will soon be making XO Condos their homes when the new condominium residence begins occupancy in Summer, 2022.

Whatever the age group, XO Condos at 1221 King Street West, where Liberty Village, King West, Queen West and Parkdale converge, offers a multitude of excellent child-care, public elementary and high school options for parents to consider.

For infants and preschoolers, choices include Liberty Village Home Child Care at 12 Laidlaw Street; Kinder Grove Infant and Child Care at 980 Dufferin; West End Parents Day Care at 375 Davencourt Rd; Kids and Company at 1100 King West; King West Home Day Care at 24 Shaw Street; Downtown Kids Academy at 905 King West; and Artscape Young Place at 180 Shaw Street.
