Welcome to St. Louis Child Development Center — nurturing and inspiring children (ages 6 weeks to 7 years) to achieve their fullest potential.

What makes St. Louis Child Development Center a different — and better — kind of child care facility?

With more than 35 years of experience in the early childhood field, we’ve worked hard to develop a special environment that delights and inspires! At St. Louis, we love getting to know each and every child and fostering their individual spirit! We know your children are a precious gift and we are honored when you choose us to care for and nurture them during these formative years.

We’re committed to creating a child-care experience with:

  • Creativity, curiosity, collaboration, and compassion
  • Developmentally-appropriate curriculum
  • A friendly, professional staff
  • A commitment to learning and social development
  • A safe, loving and welcoming facility
  • A true sense of community!

We’re proud of our Step 4 rating, the highest awarded by the Department of Health and Human Services’ Quality for ME program. Our Step 4 quality rating makes parents of children enrolled at St. Louis eligible for a double childcare tax credit on their state income tax return. The credit may result in a refund of up to $500.
