The Downstream Learning Center is a child care center that is open only to the employees of the Downstream Casino staff. DLC accommodates ages 6 weeks to 12 years old. Please call the DLC to determine the cost for your child to attend.
The Downstream Learning Center (DLC) provides a developmentally appropriate learning environment that meets the health, safety, and emotional needs of children. Currently licensed by the Oklahoma State Department of Human Services (OKDHS). The staff has also reached a Two Star status by OKDHS. The OKDHS Star's program is a Quality Rating and Improvement System for child care facilities. Three Stars being the highest is achieved by becoming accredited, which is a future goal of the DLC.
The DLC accepts subsidies from Tribal Child Care Development Fund (CCDF) Programs. The CCDF Program assists low income Native American families with the cost of paying for child care while at work, school or training.
DLC offers breakfast, lunch, snack, dinner and evening snack. Cots are provided for children to sleep in the evenings while parent(s) are working. The facility opened April 1, 2011 providing the best quality services.
Downstream Learning Center enrolled 10 new children during the month of April. Welcome to our newest DLC families!
Progress and Accomplishments:
We are pleased to welcome the new families that have enrolled over the last month. All of our teachers, who came due in April, have completed their yearly 20 hours of training and will start working towards training for next year. Most of our staff are complete, or near complete who come due in May.
Happenings & Events:
We have had a great month at the DLC. We have moved our classrooms around creating 2 infant rooms and 2 one year old rooms. We are excited at our ability to accommodate more children of those ages. We had a Safe sleep/SIDS training at the center. The children were able to attend two field trips during the week of the young child. We were very happy to be able to take them on those trips, and they had tons of fun!
