Educare Oklahoma City Raises the Bar on Early Education
As Sunbeam’s flagship early education center, Educare Oklahoma City is part of the Educare Learning Network (ELN). This network of schools is widely respected as one of the nation’s most effective early childhood models and uses an approach that extends beyond the classroom to help children, families, and neighborhoods thrive. As its incubator of best practices from around the country, Sunbeam leverages the expertise at Educare OKC by sharing it with all of its early education centers across Oklahoma City.
Independent evaluations of children enrolled at Educare OKC were provided by Anselm Learning. Educare OKC teachers gather data at progress checkpoints quarterly and children receive quarterly mental health assessments, evaluations, and referrals, as needed, for additional services.
Educare OKC partners with a variety of organizations to provide services.
These partners include: Inasmuch Foundation, Hearts for Hearing, OK DHS, OU HSC, OKC Community College, University of Central Oklahoma, University of Oklahoma, Tony Reyes Bilingual Education Center, OKC Public Schools and Friends of Sunbeam, Chesapeake Energy, the Junior League of OKC, and Community Action Agency.
