Harrah Early Learning Center is a 3-Star DHS child care center with National Association of Childcare Accreditation. We provide before and after-school care and childcare for children birth-13 years old in the Harrah, McLoud, and Choctaw area. Harrah Early Learning Center is part of Harrah Church. We use curriculum and Focus Portfolios in our classrooms designed to meet Early Learning Guideline criteria. We work along side state and regional agencies in the continuing education of our teachers and hiring of new staff.
We currently transport children to the following public schools:
- Harrah Public Schools
- McLoud Public Schools
- IME in Choctaw
- Kickapoo Head Start buses children to and from our Center.
Our vision is to provide excellent environments for children to grow in.
- The Harrah Early Learning Center exists to develop the skills and character of the next generation by providing positive, nurturing, Christian environments for children to grow in.
- We place value on building character as well as competency in our children.
- We believe that positive outcomes can be achieved through positive interactions with others that reinforce the decision-making process, in additional to social, emotional, and physical development.
- We want to help children learn to make wise choices.
- We want to provide consistency to the environments, staffing, education, and interaction with children that led to positive outcomes throughout their formative years.
