Welcome to Caring Strategies!

Caring Strategies' mission is to provide learning opportunities that support all members of our community.  We provide strategies for creation of educational programs and environments that facilitate children's active engagement and learning at home, in schools and throughout their community.  

We are located in St. Charles Parish, Destrehan, Louisiana. Thanks to the generosity of United Way and other community and business donors, we are able to provide opportunities for children ages 0-6, with and without disabilities, where they can explore their world, through various hands on activities, art, language, and physical activity in secure and safe environments.  We also offer books, activity packs and online parent coaching for strategies and questions about developmental milestones using evidence-based interventions.  Book a session to help you with milestones development play, toy ideas or concerns you might have with your child’s development.  We also offer monthly activity packs on shop page.
