Welcome to Fort Worth, the BEST PLACE for KIDS! But don’t just take our word for it – scroll to see a message from our Mayor and many community partners about the city’s ongoing dedication to this effort.

Fort Worth has the 2nd largest share of families with children in the U.S.
Because of this, the City of Fort Worth and our local community partners have teamed together to ensure we support families. Because, a city that is the Best Place for Kids is also the best place for families.

We know that navigating what is best to do for your child, especially when it comes to finding quality child care, is complicated. We want to make connecting to family resources and learning about early educational opportunities easy and fun for local families. So please, explore the links below – and contact us if you have questions or can’t find what you’re looking for as you do the priceless work of raising healthy kids!
