Educare Tulsa

Educare Tulsa’s three schools provide full-day, year-round early childhood education and family support services. The first Educare school opened in Tulsa adjacent to Kendall-Whittier Elementary School and includes an on-site health clinic. The second Educare school is adjacent to Hawthorne Elementary School and 75% of the classrooms serve infants and toddlers. The third Educare school in Tulsa is located next to MacArthur Elementary School. Tulsa is the only city in the country with three Educare schools. Like Educare schools across the country, the schools strive to boost the quality and effectiveness of other early childhood programs in Tulsa and Oklahoma.
