The Learning Center

The Learning Center at Nichols Hills United Methodist Church is a non-profit program that seeks to provide a safe, healthy, nurturing, and responsive environment where children are supported in their development and respected as individuals.  A developmentally appropriate play-based curriculum is provided. Activities are planned that interest children and offer a variety of experiences to foster development in all areas.  Teachers read to the children at least once a day and books are available to children in their classrooms.

Children, ages eight weeks through preschool, may attend up to five days Monday through Friday. Classes are open 9 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays; 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Class sizes are small and teacher/child ratios are low – generally better than required by DHS licensing.

Chapel is offered three times a week. The children learn Christian based songs and Bible stories.

The school year session typically follows Oklahoma City Public Schools’ calendar.   We offer a summer session that begins two weeks after the school year ends and ends two weeks before the school starts in the fall.

You are always welcome to stop by to visit our program. We suggest you visit between 9:30 and 11:30 a.m. in order to observe children engaged in activities. We have an open door policy so you are welcome any time.
