Childcare Services Director’s Message

As Senior Director of Early Childhood Education at Guardian Angel Settlement Association, I’m thrilled to share our enduring dedication to nurturing and educating children from infancy to five years old, spanning over 165 years. As an accredited Head Start center in St. Louis, licensed to serve 177 children, we prioritize quality care delivered by degreed and certified teachers.

At Guardian Angel, we recognize the significance of accessibility. That’s why we collaborate closely with low-income families, offering support and resources to ensure that every child receives the education they deserve. Moreover, we specialize in assisting families with children who have disabilities, including those with Individualized Education Plans (IEPs), Individualized Family Service Plans (IFSPs), speech delays, and other developmental challenges. Our comprehensive approach ensures that all children are well-prepared for kindergarten and beyond.

I extend an invitation to explore our childcare program and delve into the inspiring success stories shared by our engaged parents. Our mission is to guarantee that every family in St. Louis City has access to top-tier childcare services. If you’re in search of childcare for your child, we’d be delighted to initiate a conversation with you. Together, we can provide the support and education necessary for your child to flourish.
