Family Life

More than likely, you don’t arrive in Greater Louisville alone. There’s someone with you that you love and care for – a child, a parent, a pet.

Greater Louisville has the resources to make them as comfortable here as you are – Parenting Magazine has called us one of the Top 10 best cities to raise a family.

The search for child care should begin with a stop at Community Coordinated Child Care (4C), an agency which (among many other services) maintains a database of licensed child care providers- you can search yourself, online, or contact the agency to have 4C search for you. Local and private schools offer a number of excellent options.

Meanwhile, the rest of Louisville is massively kid-friendly – parks, festivals, restaurants, museums, the library, the zoo and every other feature of the city welcomes children. Louisville Family Funhas everything you need to get connected with family-friendly event, attractions, and free places to eat!

And they also welcome seniors, who will find such amenities as restaurants and the world-renowned arts scene to their liking – not to mention benefits such as reduced bus fares and free or reduced tuition at local universities. Kentuckiana Regional Planning and Development Agency (KIPDA) is a storehouse of information on senior issues – it maintains an invaluable list of adult day care centers. Other organizations provide information, assistance and referrals to meet the challenges of seniors and their caregivers.

As for Bowser and Fifi Meowington, Greater Louisville is as hospitable to them as it is to the humans who are close to you. There are kennels, “doggie day cares,” self-service dog washes, multiple “dog runs” in area parks, veterinarians galore – and salons that will have your pet looking like a million bucks.

Regardless of what your family looks like, Greater Louisville is ready to welcome you into our greater family.
