Our vision of excellence

In Tulsa Public Schools, our goal is to ensure that all students have equitable access to excellent early childhood education. Our early childhood programs prepare students for long-term academic success and to realize their potential to become healthy, thriving members of the community. Children participate in high-quality learning experiences and joyful, purposeful play to promote their academic, social-emotional, and physical development. The early childhood team will engage with parents and caregivers to ensure that they have the resources and supports they need to nurture children’s growth and well-being.
