Meet MISS Gayla!

Director of oklahoma rising stars childcare & preschool

Miss Gayla is the Director of Oklahoma Rising Stars Childcare & Preschool 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 holds a Bachelor degree in Math/Statistics from University of Central Oklahoma and is CPR and First Aid Certified. She has worked with kids of all ages for 35 years including babysitting, child development center, family childcare home, public school teacher (elementary through high school), college teacher and raised three children of my own (two of them have special needs). She oversees all the curriculum development and operations of the childcare & preschool.

She enjoys weaving, making hats (especially for cancer patients in honor of her mom which 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 & preschool.

you'll love our fun classes!

From childcare & preschool to summer

camp, we have something everyone in your family can enjoy!


Childcare & preschool

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

Welcome, Table Time

We are so excited for everyone to arrive! We get right to working on fine motor skills with fun arts and crafts.

Circle Time

We gather together at the circle rug to work on our cognitive, social, language, and gross motor skills with our sharing time, calendar, weather, job helpers and music & movement.

Center Time 

Often known as “Free Play” or “Play Time,” our many centers include Dramatic Play, Sensory, Art, Building, Literacy, Writing, and Science. We work on social, emotional, and language skills such as using our words, taking turns, being patient, negotiating conflicts, etc. In addition, our teacher brings over small groups or works 1-on-1 with building cognitive skills (colors, shapes, letters, sounds, numbers, counting, math/reading for older kids) based on each child’s level. Our summer camps feature lots of fun science experiments!


Our playground areas include play structures, slides, sand boxes, balls, hula hoops, scooters, and more! You’ll think we’re just playing, but we’re actually working on our social, emotional, language, and gross motor skills as we run, jump, climb, swing, and create games. We also play a lot of fun water games during camp!

Snack Time

We love working on our cognitive, social, language, and fine motor skills as we pour, measure, sort, count, chat, and enjoy eating together.

Closing Circle

We head back to the circle rug to work on our cognitive skills with story time, social and language skills with discussing what we’ve learned, and emotional skills with getting ready to go home. 


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 & Preschool, 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 & kindergarten! In fact, kindergarten 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 three times each 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 our upcoming field trips, 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 & Preschool. Thank you for your support!
