I currently work at Pitter Patter CDC and have worked there for over a year. This day care is the only day care in Tahlequah that I have been to that actually cares for the children more than anything else. I am not just saying this because I am an employee there. Children mean the world to me, and I would not lie when it comes to the saftey and health of ANYONE'S child. This CDC is clean and well taken care of. The cook always makes more than necessary and the children are allowed as much food as they want (within reason and without hurting them). The teachers in the preschool class go above and beyond what is needed to care for and teach their students. The teachers in the other classrooms do what is needed to care for the children. Over all this day care is probably the best you will find anywhere near the area and I am confident about that.
