Programs & Facilities

The Early Childhood Education Institute (ECEI)

The ECEI, which is located on the Tulsa campus, is an applied research group focused on young children, birth to age 8, their families, and early care and education providers and group settings, such as Early Head Start, etc. The ECEI’s mission is to advance and support early childhood programming and policy through research, evaluation, and outreach. Since its inception in 2006, the ECEI has conducted a variety of program evaluation projects, worked with many state and national partners, and impacted policy and programming decisions. For example, the ECEI has served as evaluation partners with Tulsa Educare and CAP-Tulsa providing data to help inform their programming for young children birth through age 5. In addition, the ECEI has launched independent research aligned with the Institute’s vision and mission. The recently launched a Supporting Effective Educator Development (SEED) study, in collaboration with colleagues from Georgetown and Harvard, seeks to document factors that make children successful or not as they progress from preschool to grade 3. 

John W. Renner Science Education Center

The John W. Renner Science Education Center conducts research in the teaching and learning of science; provides instruction in the latest techniques and materials in the teaching of science in kindergarten, elementary, middle, and secondary schools; and assists state agencies in the introduction of science into the classrooms of the public schools. The center also has participated in national curriculum studies. For the undergraduate student in the College, the Science Education Center makes possible an approach to learning in which teacher and students participate in discovery. The center has been responsible for leadership in science education and for providing future teachers with a strong science background for the profession.

Institute of Child Development

The National Academy of Early Childhood Programs accredits the Institute of Child Development, which serves approximately 50 children from the Norman and University communities. The OU Institute of Child Development was the first group of licensed childcare facilities in the United States to be accredited. Working with children from 2-5 years old, the Institute meets a variety of strict standards, including providing activities appropriate for preschool children, having an adequate student-staff ratio, meeting stringent health and safety standards, and providing opportunities for parental involvement. Undergraduate teacher candidates in the Early Childhood program complete a practicum at the Institute, and teachers at the Institute also teach courses in the Early Childhood program.
