Diverse Kindergarten


Organized by OPSR, the Early Childhood Research Symposium plays a vital role within Oklahoma's early childhood community. Serving as a nexus for networking, collaboration and the exchange of cutting- edge insights, the symposium works as a catalyst to unite the state's early childhood community. This dynamic event allows for the widespread distribution of new and crucial information across the state, ensuring services are based upon the most current data to best serve the needs of children.
