About the Provider

Description: Our preschool began over 30 years ago in the Spring of 1982 as a Mother’s Day Out program at Yale Avenue Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). This one day per week program, initially 9-2:30 on Friday, was a big help to stay-at-home moms who just needed a break from the kids! However, the idea caught on quickly and in the Autumn of that same year, a second day, Tuesday, was added. Through the ensuing decades, the program continued to expand to five days. The service hours were expanded to 7:30a—5:30p for accommodation of working families. In October of 2002, the preschool was approved as a licensed two star preschool under the auspices of the Oklahoma Department of Human services. This transitioning ministry evolved into a Christian early learning center for infants through Pre-K. The preschool was incorporated November 12, 2004 as a not-for-profit corporation and received IRS 501 c3 approval as a public charity May 24, 2006. The preschool continues to be affiliated with and a ministry of Yale Avenue Christian Church.

Additional Information: Rated 2 Stars.

My children attended this preschool. There were several occasions where I was worried about safety. Especially when it comes to infants and babies, this should never be a concern. We changed schools and I wouldn't recommend this school to anyone.
