Tulsa Early Childhood Linkages Project

"Family is a critical role in a child’s experiences and development"
-Linkages Project Team in Tulsa

Tulsa, OK

Tulsa Area Community Schools Initiative Linkages Project connects the Tulsa Community Schools model with Oklahoma’s well established early care and learning system to achieve improved school readiness and success in the early years of school. Over three years, the Project will build upon existing strong community collaborations to provide an effective bridge between early childhood experiences and the initial school years at four Community School sites. The focus will be on creating an effective continuum of quality, developmentally appropriate opportunities for children aged 0-8 years in the Tulsa area.

Linkages will serve as a link in building and sustaining relationships among children, families, community schools, early care and learning programs, and the larger community. The purpose of this linkage is to create an effective continuum of quality, developmentally appropriate opportunities for children, birth through age eight, in the Tulsa area. The results of the initiative will create mutually supportive policies and practices that link early care and learning systems and public education.
