The Future of Child Care for Students at STLCC-Forest Park

In January 2021, the state of Missouri announced that St. Louis Community College would receive $4 million in Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act Child Care Plan funding to improve the quality and availability of child care and early education programs at STLCC-Forest Park.

Students First, An STLCC Core Value

Among STLCC’s core values is Students First – to support student success and remove barriers.

The lack of child care is a barrier that may prevent students from completing their educational goals. By offering quality child care programs and services for students, the College will positively influence educational outcomes.


The CARES Act Child Care plan is part of an initiative supported by Missouri Gov. Mike Parson to fund improvements in the quality and availability of child care and early education programs. The funds help establish or expand on-campus child care centers via a one-time grant to support and strengthen access to safe child care for 20 or more children ages 6 weeks to 5 years from low-income families receiving child care subsidies while parents work or pursue education or training. The grant period runs through Oct. 31, 2021.
