Happy Campers Academy offers Tulsa and surrounding communities quality child care while families are at work. We accept children ages 6 weeks to five years of age, and provide parents an opportunity to view their children in the early learning center through a closed circuit internet connection.
At all three of our midtown Tulsa locations, Happy Campers utilizes a child-centered philosophy and partners with our families to provide a quality educational experience in a nurturing environment. Our highly trained staff works to get to know each individual child and his/her cognitive and developmental needs, while seeking input from families to make the home and school transition smooth and communication open for the success of the child. Through a balance of developmental play and planned educational activities, our students learn best through doing–all while having fun and expressing themselves creatively.
We start the foundation for learning when our students are infants–bonding and connecting. When they become toddlers, the focus is self-help and self-recognition and then during the twos, we build upon independence and language skills. The three-year-olds start making cognitive connections and experience the beginnings of social skills. Finally, in PreK, students start connecting all the tools from every stage to form a strong foundation for early reading preparation to build confidence for kindergarten.
Our teachers conduct conferences twice a year in order to build a strong home and school team. We want to keep parents informed about what their child(ren) is learning, developmental milestones that are being achieved, and suggest skills that can be practiced at home. We believe that our child-centered philosophy will foster a love for learning in these ever-important early childhood years.
Our Happy Campers at John Knox location offers after school care for students at Patrick Henry, Carnegie, Council Oak, and Eliot. We offer a place for kids to do homework, play outside, and have a safe and structured time after school while parents are working for ages 5-12 years.
