Local Community Resources

Listed below are local licensed and licensed exempt childcare providers. Licensed providers have been inspected by the State Department of Health to ensure they meet all childcare requirements. License-exempt providers have been inspected to ensure they meet basic health and safety standards. For more information on childcare licensing please refer to the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services website at http://health.mo.gov/safety/childcare/index.php.

The Gender Task Force Family Resource Center does not personally endorse any of these facilities. Use your own caution and personal discretion when evaluating the best daycare provider for your family. Remember, the right caregiver will strive to develop a positive relationship with your child and will hopefully relate well to your family values. All locations are within three miles of the UMSL Campus.
