I feel privileged to be part of this organization and am very proud to work here.

After a year of working at Tulsa Educare, I can honestly say my experience has been fantastic. I am very happy with my supervisor and feel that I am recognized for my work within the agency. Keep up the great work!

Aside from the amazing families and children I get to work with daily, Educare values me as a vital employee. My benefits and pay are top-notch for my experience & education.

I hope that Agency Leadership knows how much all your HARD work is appreciated. The agency would not be what it is today without each of you. There are so many child development centers that do not have the support and resources that we have. There are centers in the Educare network that don't have what we have. Thank you! Thank you!
