Moving with young children may add stress to an already stressful situation. There are trained Youth Sponsors who can ease many of your child’s concerns.

Contact the Stuttgart School Liaison Officers (SLOs) and request a Youth Sponsor and schedule time to video chat as a family. Let your child ask questions about the area, foods, language and schools.

SLOs can provide information about school options in the area – some garrisons have multiple options, including DODEA schools, international schools, private schools and more. Homeschooling is also an option in many areas. Your garrison SLO will have details for you to make the best decision for your family.

The SLO can answer questions about school sports (for example, Varsity program for scholarship applications).

For youth sports and activities, Child Youth Services (CYS) can help you. Children must be enrolled in the installation CYS with proper sports screening medical forms prior to registration for specific activities and events.
