WESTERN OKLAHOMA STATE COLLEGE
The conceptual framework uses the STAR as a symbol of our program's core values. Each of the Five points on the Star symbolizes one of the Five NAEYC Standards and Supportive Skills. Each point influences and is influenced by the other. The Child is at the center of our Star so that we may keep the emphasis on the Child as we incorporate these Five Standards into our curriculum and impart them to our students. The end result is a program that produces Child Care Professionals who take a holistic collaborative approach to Child Care, who in turn provide opportunities for children to learn Cognitively, Socially, Emotionally, and Physically.
