In the event of inclement weather, First Christian Church Child Care Center will be closed for the first day that Edmond Public Schools are closed.  We evaluate the condition of weather and roads for the second and subsequent days. 

Since 1963 the education building at First Christian Church has been filled with the sights and sounds of children of all ages each weekday. This outreach ministry was begun in response to the need of a single mother who was returning to school to complete her education. We have the distinction of being the first licensed child care facility in Oklahoma.

We offer care Monday through Friday from 6:45am to 6:00pm for children 6 weeks of age through the completion of fifth grade.  We offer transportation to area public and private schools at no additional charge, house an Edmond Public Schools Pre-K classroom, and offer Private full-day kindergarten as well with a certified teacher utilizing the A Beka curriculum.

Our mission is to serve children and families by providing an early learning environment that encourages the spiritual, physical, social-emotional, and intellectual development of each individual child at his or her own pace, following state and nationally accepted standards of child care.

We believe a child’s early experiences enrich and foster future growth. Children deserve to be treated and respected as  individuals in our Christian environment that welcomes reason, exploration, question, and imagination. We value each child’s need for safety, security, warmth, and acceptance in the promise of God’s love.

We Are NAC Accredited

NAC Accreditation recognizes FCCCCC as an early care and education program that exemplifies excellence in the care of young children. NAC accreditation benefits everyone involved.

About Our Teachers

Each classroom has at least one lead teacher (responsible for meeting center curriculum standards in lesson planning) and several assistant teachers. We believe that educated, knowledgeable teachers are a benefit to the care and nurturing of children. We feel fortunate that our center teachers come from diverse educational backgrounds.  Some have four year degrees in child development and education, others have field-specific early childhood Certificates of Mastery or Child Development Associate credentials, and all are required to hold current pediatric First Aid/CPR certification and obtain a minimum of 20 classroom hours of continuing education training per year.

Each employee goes through an orientation process, Entry Level Child Care Training, Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation background checks (both name based and sex offender searches), the Oklahoma Department of Human Services Joshua's List check, and both personal and professional reference checks.  Additionally, our vehicle drivers attend Driver's Training and pass qualification by our insurance company based on safe driving records.

Teachers of the Month

Each month, First Christian Church Child Care Center recognizes its Teachers of the Month.  We are honored to have these exceptional caregivers on our staff!

Britney Farris - Lead Teacher, Puppies

Britney has been a part of the FCCCCC Family for years. She is a dedicated employee. Britney works a consistent schedule and is always on time! She works well with others and does whatever is needed to fulfill the demands of her job. She does a great job with creating a clean and inviting classroom environment for the "Puppies". Britney is an asset to this center and we are blessed to have her! 


Natasha Seymour - Assistant Teacher, Monkeys

Natasha was a former employee who has returned to us! She was a great teacher before and now she is even greater! Natasha’s love for 3 year olds is rare, and we love her for it! She is patient. She is gentle. She is soft-spoken, and motherly. She has been complimented by several of her co-workers. They have said things such as, “Natasha is so patient. Natasha is a great teacher.” She has been a phenomenal addition to the Monkeys class and we are blessed to have her.

Ashley Welchel - Lead Teacher, Heroes

Ashley has been employed with FCCCCC since 2012. She works a consistent schedule and it is obvious that she loves her job. She works hard to keep her children engaged and on their toes with exciting and fun activities. Ashley is a part of the school age team. She transports children to and from school, and is willing to help out where needed. Administration has received several compliments by other co-workers about Ashley’s calm and pleasant demeanor. Although she is soft spoken, she knows how to manage a classroom and maintain authority.
