Welcome to University of Tulsa KinderCare. Our experts designed our classrooms — and every activity and lesson — to help prepare your child for success in school and
beyond. With designated learning centers such as dramatic play and blocks in every classroom, children have the opportunity for rich
social play and child-initiated discovery.
You’ll also find that our classrooms feature a print-rich environment full of carefully selected materials, written charts and labels,
and children’s literature. By helping your child connect spoken words and print, we’re helping develop early literacy and writing skills.
Whether your child has first words or first grade on the horizon, we’re excited to show you how everything in our center is designed for
Babies grow and learn every day. Our goal is to provide a safe and nurturing "home away from home" where babies can explore and make new discoveries. We know that learning through play is extremely valuable at this age and our Early Foundations® Infant program is designed to give babies the skills that will serve as the building blocks for a lifetime of learning.
As toddlers develop friendships, self-esteem, and curiosity, our Early Foundations® Toddler program will help them explore their world in a safe and nurturing environment. Our unique curriculum is based on the philosophy that children learn best through experiences. So each day is filled with fun activities that excite and develop toddlers, giving them the comfort and confidence to speak those first few important words, as well as make their first friends.
At this age, children are making new discoveries daily. And as two-year olds begin to exert their independence, our Early Foundations® Discovery Preschool program is prepared to open their eyes to a world of learning, sharing, and exploring. Our holistic approach in the classroom engages young minds with a blend of music, art, and movement, as well as the early education fundamentals they'll need as they continue on to preschool.
As preschoolers gain more self-esteem, they may feel ready to take on the world. Our Early Foundations® Preschool program enhances that confidence by providing activities to help children become problem solvers and lifelong learners. Through independent exploration, structured activities, and hands-on learning, children will work on early literacy, math, science, and social studies concepts. A healthy dose of running, jumping, and dancing keeps them active too.
Prekindergartners are preparing for the adventure of a lifetime – school. And our Early Foundations Prekindergarten® program is designed to get them ready by teaching letters and words, math concepts, and valuable social skills. With small group instruction, independent play in an organized atmosphere, and whole-group activities, children will have all the right skills to hop, skip, and jump right into kindergarten.
Even after school's out for the day, children need to be engaged in a comfortable, yet stimulating environment. That's where our Catch the Wave® program comes in. This innovative before – and after-school program allows school-age children to balance learning and fun through a variety of experiences. From homework help to fun physical activities, our program is designed so that everyone goes home happy.
The Math Adventures enrichment program is designed to teach important mathematics concepts such as geometry, numbers, measurement, and probability. Your child will learn about length, height, and weight. He will learn about shapes and solids. He will learn how to add, subtract, multiply, and count money. Math is everywhere and giving your child every advantage now will add up to success later in life.
Ongoing research proves that early exposure to music helps children think, reason, create, and express themselves. Children will laugh and learn about rhythm, vocal melodies, and a variety of musical genres and instruments, which can lower stress and advance memory. Learning never sounded so good.
Set your child up for advanced success with literacy through phonics, the study of letters and sounds. Reader books, games, and activity cards help your child understand the basics of vowels and blending syllables, giving him confidence and command of language.
Many of our child care centers are accredited by national organizations that require us to meet rigorous early childhood education standards and guidelines for high-quality care and education. Programs that are accredited have demonstrated their commitment to go beyond the state’s minimum licensing requirements to meet and maintain these high standards of quality.

Good afternoon Ms. Donna and Staff,I would just like to reiterate how much I love University of Tulsa KinderCare and the Staff. Our family is so grateful for you all; I cannot even begin to express my gratitude. It is incredibly hard as a parent not to be with your child ALL the TIME, however there is NO ONE ELSE I would trust my children with more than the Staff at University of Tulsa KinderCare. I want you all to know that you not only impact the lives of our children, you give us parents’ peace of mind and allow us to continue working to provide for our families with that much needed ease.I was asked to join a friend today for moral support while she dropped off tuition papers and a final walk through at a “Development Center”. I am sorry but I have to vent; any “Development Center” should not have swings, bumpos and bouncy seats of which six of the eight infants were in while the two others were being fed by the two employees on the other side of the room. I still have a pit in my stomach. I know this is probably nothing new and you have heard it all, but it is new to me.I know University of Tulsa KinderCare is the best center hands down. I take great pride in where my kids receive their education and care. I brag about University of Tulsa KinderCare on a daily basis I told my friend today that the director matters, the director sets the bar according to their expectations. The bar is mighty high at University of Tulsa KinderCare and it shows with Ms. Donna and the amazing Staff!Keep up the incredible work, Ladies! It takes a very special person to do your jobs and it is an honor to have you teach and care for our children.
