Looking for Last Minute Holiday Help?
It's the Holiday season and families in St. Louis are busy. TLC for Kids, Inc. is there for your last minute needs. TLC has helped homes with babysitting, pet sitting and party helpers since 1985.

It’s the holiday season and families have lots of activities to attend and enjoy. Some times those activities don’t involve the little ones in the house, or sometimes they take the family away from home over night or for a weekend and nobody is there to watch the cat or the dog. TLC can help with all these issues and more.
One of the other events that happen at this time of year is parties in the home. So the problem is not who will watch the kids, the pets or the house, but instead, how will I ever get this all done in time. TLC can provide housekeepers and party helpers for your special holiday party or function. TLC can have a sitter on call just in case a guest, last minute, loses a sitter and needs to bring the kids along or risk not attending at all. How much better attended will a function be, when the guests know their children will be professionally cared for on site and mom or dad can drop in anytime to make sure everyone is happy.
TLC only represents experienced caregivers with verifiable, good references who are warm, sensitive and alert to the needs of children. Our extensive application and interview process allows TLC and parents to carefully view the caregivers' child care experience, education and work history, personal lifestyle and child care philosophy. Our childcare questionnaires and oral interview questions help us to assess the caregiver's knowledge of early childhood development and their ability to make decisions concerning the safety of their charges.
Sharon Graff-Radell and her sister, Stephanie Graff-Yaffee, both mothers of two, developed TLC to help parents find safe quality in-home child care. They were the first to make sick childcare, on-call nannies, and in-home nanny care available to St. Louis parents. Sharon is currently serving the Board of Directors for the International Nanny Association (INA), of which she has been a member since 1988. Sharon was named Young Entrepreneur for the state of Missouri in 1990. Stephanie has been recruiting and matching nannies with families since she graduated from Emory University in 1989. Together with the assistance of the other professional TLC staff members, they have developed specialized training programs for nannies and postpartum care providers.
