Church Weekday Education

The purpose of Church Weekday Education is to:

  • provide foundational education and social development in a spiritual atmosphere
  • support programs that offer childcare for children of parents who work outside the home
  • extend the mission of the church to young members and the community


What is Oklahoma Church Weekday Education?  What benefit to me or my center does this provide?  This organization focuses on the whole child and introducing Jesus as a part of their world daily.  Children and families’ lives are touched daily through caring teachers in the church based programs as they are drawn to experience the love of Jesus on multiple levels.

Benefits include:

  • Exchange ideas, study trends, methods and development in the field of early childhood education.
  • Network with other teachers and directors from across our great state.
  • Receive DHS training hours as required for all licensed programs.
  • Fun and fellowship with new friends.
