Located in South St. Louis City, SouthSide Early Childhood Center (formerly South Side Day Nursery) was founded in 1886 by 15 Unitarian women to provide low-income children a safe, nurturing and educational environment while their parents were at work. For more than 130 years, SouthSide Early Childhood Center has carried on the vision of its founders, serving hundreds of families every year. Today we provide exceptional early education and nurturing childcare that prepares children for success in school and allows parents to work or attend school.
