REACHING FOR THE STARS

Get licensed as a child care provider or owner in Oklahoma

The safety and well-being of Oklahoma's children is priority in times of emergency as well as in daily care. All child care facilities in Oklahoma must be licensed through the Oklahoma Department of Human Services Child Care Services. The OKDHS established the Reaching for the Stars program for child care providers to become licensed and encourage them to pursue excellence in the care they provide. CECPD works as a partner with OKDHS to provide the necessary training for licensing and continued excellence.
