Early Childhood and Family Education provides information and resources to support children and families birth to age 8. We offer professional development covering the Oklahoma Academic Standards and best practices for early childhood classrooms.

Oklahoma's 8-Year Strategic Plan, called Oklahoma Edge, has a critical goal:

  • Every child deserves and must have the opportunity for a strong, competitive education that can lead to a productive and fulfilling life.

The Early Childhood office will support this goal by building on the Oklahoma Edge pillars:

  • Pillar 1: Achieve academic success
  • Pillar 2: Build exceptional educators and schools
  • Pillar 3: Create engaged communities

new! Standards by Grade Level



Please see the "Main Page" menu for information regarding specific ages and grade levels. The "Quick Link" section provides links to commonly asked questions about topics such as the Oklahoma Academic Standards, Special Education, and How to Support Young Children Academically as well as Immunization and Child Care information.
