Our program lets parents choose from a broad range of child care providers licensed by the State of Oklahoma. These homes and centers are monitored by the State Department of Human Services (DHS) workers and by a Choctaw Nation monitoring coordinator to make sure standards for health, safety and quality are maintained.

Our goal is to ensure maintenance of minimum standards for the care and protection of children away from their homes and to encourage and assist the relative child care home to meet maximum standards and to work for the development of sufficient and adequate services for child care.

Additional Information: Rated 1 Star.
