Thank you for taking the time to learn about our wonderful center.

We love watching each child that enrolls in this center grow developmentally, socially, emotionally, and physically. We take pride in educating the children and encouraging a warm and loving environment. We enjoy the fact we have an open door policy for each parent to come and participate in their child or children’s learning experience.

Here at Smart Start #5 we offer an excellent curriculum that is developmentally appropriate in each age group. Our lesson plans and daily schedules are posted in each classroom and are made weekly to build on children’s knowledge, levels and interests. Our goal is to develop the whole child and help them to become ready for school both socially and cognitively. The staff are friendly and wonderful in their interactions with each and every child. Each classroom has a Master Teacher who is qualified and continues taking classes and completing training each year to provide the quality early childhood educational experiences your child deserves. Our center welcomes parents at any time to visit, share their careers, read, help with parties, and share their culture.

We provide care and educational opportunities for children 6 weeks to 5 years. We have Full Day Lawton Public Schools Pre-K on site for children of working parents who cannot participate in 1/2 day Pre-K due to their work schedules. We also have 3 year old Preschool with curriculum that ensures your child will develop the skills necessary to be successful in Pre-K and Kindergarten.

We are very proud of our center, our teachers and our curriculum and are looking forward to sharing that with your family. We have an open door policy and would love for you to come in for a tour today!


My child has been attending Smart Start #2 for the past 3 years and this year she is being transported to Smart Start #5 from there for LPS Pre-K.I love Ms. Summer at Smart Start #2 and Ms. Whalen at Smart Start #5. They really focus on the kids. My daughter used to be shy but not anymore. They take the time to work with each kid on what they need to know. They helped my daughter learn to tie her shoes and she can count to 50 already! They also take the time to make my kids feel special.

My Child has attended Smart Start #5 for 8 months and I totally recommend this school. Ms. Whalen and Ms. Nash are the best. Education is a big concern for them and Ana improved a lot in their class. Ms. Whalen is my ride or die! She wakes up every morning to be with my daughter at 5:30 a.m. so I can go to work. I wouldn't be able to manage without this school. Great teachers, wonderful staff. I wouldn't trade it for the world!

My daughter has been attending this day care for 7 years and my son for his whole life. I really appreciate Ms. Amanda and Ms. Nash for how much they care about the children. The ladies are great with my kids and my kids love seeing them each day.They have also really helped with potty training and attitudes. It's wonderful to see my kids grow each day with the help of the staff at daycare. Carson has learned nursery rhymes and sings songs. Gaby learned to tie her shoes. I love this day care!
