USAO Child Development Center

USAO Child Development Center

The University of Science & Arts of Oklahoma offers a preschool program in its acclaimed Child Development Center for three- and four-year-old children. Children must be three or four years of age by Sept. 1 of the school year, to attend our program. There are many benefits to multiage systems including increased language skills, increased confidence, and peer learning. Additionally, teacher candidates from the USAO College of Education assist with teaching, so the student-to-teacher ratio is very small, affording students lots of one-on-one attention.

At USAO, we strive to foster an environment in which children feel welcome, accepted, valued and safe. According to the National Association for the Education of Young Children, “A high-quality early childhood program provides a safe and nurturing environment which promotes the physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development of young children while responding to the needs of families.”
