Child Development Center

High-quality childcare is a necessity for working parents. Our inclusive program provides a safe and nurturing setting for children six weeks to five years of age to learn, grow and thrive. Children are offered the opportunity to learn in a developmentally appropriate environment that caters to their social and emotional development, cognitive awareness, literacy and self-help skills.

Our center features seven classrooms, each staffed with two full-time teachers and one to two part time support staff throughout the day. Our three-star center is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children and licensed by the Oklahoma Department of Human Services.

Tours
We welcome drop in tours, but prefer they are scheduled so that we have time designated to answer questions specific to the needs of the family. Call 405.297.7760 to schedule a tour.

Wait List
We have a waitlist for each age group. However, our infant waitlist is the longest with a wait of 12-16 months typically. There is a $10 fee to be added to our waitlist. 

Activities

Swim lessons are provided for children, in our care, who are three years and older, and potty trained. These small group lessons introduce children to basic safety around water practices and beginner swim skills.

Our partnership with The Language Company allows us to provide multiple language options for children two years and older.  Families have the option of participating in five-week sessions throughout the school year that will introduce their child to multiple languages and cultures including Spanish, Mandarin and Chinese.

Each week, children two years and older have the opportunity to enjoy a physical education class offered by a certified group exercise instructor. Children are coached through a variety of gross motor activities ranging from bear crawls, jumping jacks and frog leaps to yoga stretches, meditation and balancing skills.

Government funding from the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) provides our program with supplemental funding that allows us to serve three nutritious meals per day.
