My name is Stephanie Stamper and I am the Director of Smart Start #5. Thank you for taking the time to learn about our wonderful center. I have a Bronze Level Director Credential from the State of Oklahoma and I am also attending Cameron University to obtain an Associate’s in Early Childhood. I have been a Director since August 2011. I have been with Playcare since 2002 and am so comitted to Early Childhood Education I worked my way up from Teachers Assistant, Master Teacher, Assistant Director, and finally Director.
I love watching each child that enrolls in this center grow developmentally, socially, emotionally, and physically. I take pride in educating the children and encouraging a warm and loving environment. I 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 can not participate in 1/2 day Pre-K due to their work schedules. We also have 3 year old Preschool with curriculum that insures your child will develop the skills necessary to be successful in Pre-K and Kindergarten.
I am very proud of our center, our teachers and our curriculum and am 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!
