We take the safety of your children to the next level. All doors are secure to the outside and classrooms. Parents have codes and staff use cards. There are cameras in every classroom and outside, as well as the lobby and the library. We have phones in every class with an intercom system. We have someone at the front desk that monitors the door and the cameras. We also have a 575 square foot storm room with a restroom for those scary Oklahoma bad weather days.
Raven and Dennis Carter raised their family in the Oklahoma Panhandle. They have four children and 8 grandchildren. Raven’s passion in early childhood education began in 1987 when her oldest son was born. Having worked in Advertising and then for a CPA, she decided what she really wanted was to be more hands on with her own children. She began watching children in her home in 1992 and then in 1999 she opened her first center and continued her education. She was the Lead teacher of a 4-year-old class and the Director. She obtained her CDA in 2004 and then her Certificate of Mastery in Child Development in 2005. Through hard work and pure determination, her center was the first 2 start center in Texas County. The 13 years she had that center she expanded it twice seeing to the community’s needs.
Wanting to be closer to family, they moved to Yukon in 2010. Raven went to work for the Yukon school systems for 2 years but missed the enjoyment and excitement of working in childcare. After much deliberation, the opportunity presented itself in 2013 to build a new center where they would strive to provide high quality care for every child.
Over the next few years the improvements never stopped. In 2015 they were the first center in Yukon to add a storm room. They have updated their security system, went digital with iPads in every room for daily reports to the parents. They built a second building just for preschool and after school care. They offer more than a classroom with a book corner; they built an entire Library. They have 4 large outdoor play areas full or large motor toys and a snack shack general store ran by the after-school class. More recently, they have repainted classrooms, added new carpet and bought new classroom furniture.
In the 6 years the center has been open they have worked with over 350 families helping lay a strong foundation for their children’s educational future.
When looking for a well diverse educational learning center, we hope to hear from you and look forward to you becoming part of our childcare family.
