Thank you to all of our friends and supporters. With your help our 40th Anniversary Gala raised over $45,000 to support our scholarship fund!
We’re always on the go here at Lemay Child and Family Center, but sometimes the teachers design extra activities for the kids to embrace exercise and movement. Recently Miss Shonda, Miss Deonna, and Miss Alma’s classroom, the Dream Catchers, took to the mats with balls, trampolines and hula hoops. They had lots of fun!
We always take into consideration the safety of the children, families, and staff when
making the decision to close or open late.
Lemay Child and Family Center strives to stay open for families whenever we can, even with
bad winter weather. However, if there is a lot of snow or ice that makes driving unsafe, we
may have to close or have a “late start” to give employees and children more time to arrive
safely. We will announce closings and late starts on the radio, TV, and the Internet.
Our weather updates will be listed on kmox.com and KMOX radio (1120 AM); KSDK Channel 5
and ksdk.com; Fox 2 News and myfoxstl.com; and KMOV News 4 and kmov.com. You can also
check our website or call in to our voice mail for updates.
Thank you to all of our sponsors and supporters!

The Center had an open house event to share our plans with members of the community and prospective donors. Attendees met with the architect and project manager and took a virtual tour of the site of our future playground. With the help of an anonymous donor, we are now nearly 40% to our goal!
The Outdoor Learning Center is an upcoming major project to develop the 2.5 acre lot behind our Center with new playground equipment and facility improvements which provide outside learning opportunities and address safety codes. Some of the alterations will include:
- poured-in-place resilient surfacing
- bike and stroller paths
- water fountains
- several sports and recreation areas
- a “Discovery Creek” and rock bed
- gardening plot
- log benches and picnic tables
