Meet MISS Gayla!

Director of oklahoma rising stars childcare

Ms. Gayla is the Director/Owner of Oklahoma Rising Stars Childcare and absolutely loves her job! She loves to see the children’s smiling faces as they arrive each day. She loves teaching children about the world they live in so they can feel confident in it.

She has a Certificate of Mastery in Child Development. She holds a Bachelor in Science degree in Math/Statistics from University of Central Oklahoma and is CPR and First Aid Certified. She is currently working on an Associate in Arts Degree in Family Services & Child Development. She has worked with kids of all ages for over 35 years including babysitting, child development centers, family childcare home, public school teacher (elementary through high school), college teacher and raised three children of her own (two of them have special needs). She oversees all the curriculum development and operations of the childcare.

She enjoys weaving, making hats (especially for cancer patients in honor of her mom who is a survivor), spending time with family, taking walks with family/friends/dogs and going to Christian concerts.

Our Philosophy

We believe that children learn best when:

They feel safe, secure, and loved.

They are excited about the activities.

There is a balance between teacher-directed and child-initiated activities.

We help foster this learning by providing children with a loving atmosphere and caring teacher, new theme-based activities each week, structured curriculum and discovery centers in the childcare.

you'll love our fun classes!


Our classes help your child to make friends, get socialized, and be ready for Preschool & Kindergarten. We focus on a "whole child" philosophy and help develop your child's social, emotional, cognitive, and physical skills through PLAY. 

(Little do they know they are actually learning really important skills WHILE they play - shhh! don't tell them!) We can’t wait for your child to join our class!

Oklahoma Rising Stars Childcare offers full-time care for infants as young as 6 weeks of age.

Our program for infants sets its daily stride around the needs and unique differences of each child. Routines are the course for an infant’s day and are the foundation for building trust. Every moment of an infant’s day offers opportunities for learning and building reliable and dependable relationships.

Our teachers focus their efforts on responding promptly to meet the needs of each infant, while making your baby feel safe, secure and happy. Our caregivers allow your infant to explore their newly developing world though daily supervised tummy time, the incorporation of new sights, sounds and textures, music and cuddle time!


Our young toddler program focuses on your child’s natural need and desire to explore her new and changing world. By this time your child should begin to crawl, cruise and even walk. During this transition from infancy to toddlerhood, your child’s curiosity of her environment will increase. Our young toddler program will continue to meet the needs of your child, while offering your child a safe environment where she can move freely and explore.

Teachers will begin to incorporate colors and shapes into art projects, songs and sensory play. Daily story time will spark your child’s imagination, introducing literacy skills and early language. Our young toddlers will be assisted with basic self-help skills such as holding her own bottle or sippy cup, and begin learning about basic hygiene with assisted handwashing. The introduction of utensils during mealtimes, and sitting to eat at a small table, will support your child’s mealtime independence.


Every day is an adventure! From our engaging and bright classrooms to our exciting hands-on activities, your child will develop a love for life-long learning!

We Focus On The "Whole Child!"

At Oklahoma Rising Stars Childcare, we follow a “whole child” philosophy where we partner with you to improve your child’s Social, Emotional, Cognitive, Language, and Physical skills. Your child will learn to socialize, make friends, develop social and emotional skills, and be more than ready for preschool! In fact, preschool teachers LOVE our students so much because they're such great learners!

Developmentally Appropriate!

Our curriculum is based on the NAEYC guidelines and features a balance of teacher-directed and child-initiated hands-on activities to accomplish these goals. 

We also incorporate Creative Curriculum. 

We Love Questions!

We aim to help children become independent, self-confident, inquisitive and enthusiastic learners by actively exploring their environment.

In fact, one of the best ways we can teach is to ask THEM questions. "What are you creating?" "How does it work?" "Tell me about what you drew." etc.

We Partner With You!

We assess our students throughout the year to discover what areas they're strong in, and what areas still need more work. 

We keep you in the loop on what we're working on, and we also let you know exactly how your child is doing during our two parent teacher conferences each year.

Process... Not Product!
We love to get messy, and the best time for that is at art time! We focus on the process, not the end product, and use a wide variety of art materials. 

Children learn SO MUCH MORE when they have the chance to explore and play without rules of what art "should" look like at the end.

Fun Themes & Centers!

Every few weeks, we dive deep into a new, exciting theme based on the weather, holidays, or whatever the children are dying to learn more about. 

We change out our centers and materials to reflect the new theme. Our classroom is always changing, and you never know what exciting things we'll add next week!


We have 5-star reviews on Facebook and Google. These reviews are a testament to the phenomenal community we all work so hard to build at Oklahoma Rising Stars Childcare. Thank you for your support!
