Managing care for the older adults in our lives can be daunting.  A new resource for families on this journey is Aging Gracefully.  This organization provides a range of assessment and supports to guide decision-making.

View a list of St. Louis area summer camps for 2022. Registration is now open for many of the camps that will be in-person again this year.

7 Steps to Finding Safe and Quality Care is a series of short videos developed by Child Care Aware of Missouri to help families understand childcare options and make the best choice for their child.

For families considering independent schools for their children, Independent Schools of St. Louis provides information about the wide range of school choices in our area, and guidance for navigating the enrollment process.

Additional resources for finding long-term or occasional in-home childcare:

  • TLC Family Care is a local agency with years of experience placing nannies and helping with short-term needs.
  • STL Sitter is another local agency providing in-home care.  They do not pace long-term nannies, but offer “Consistent Care,” which is care for 6-8 week periods, and “Casual Care” for planned or emergency intermittent care needs.  Their caregivers will provide care for children with mild illness or who have been exposed to COVID-19.

Don’t forget to register and set up an account with Care.Com for back-up child and adult care subsidized by WashU, which also provides access to an extensive web-based platform for self-searches.
