It is a place alive with inquiry, investigation, thinking, and communication.  Riverfield's dedicated educators and complex environments are filled with open-ended materials invite and cultivate thinking, collaboration, and representation of ideas.  Learning is embedded in all aspects of their day through meaningful experiences and opportunities for hands-on, minds-on engagement.

Visit the Delaware Child Development Centers

Delaware Child Development (DCD) directly operates two nationally accredited, 3-Star centers in Bartlesville, OK. Both centers use Creative Curriculum/Teaching Strategies Gold. The center’s enrollment is approximately 62 for each center and serves children from birth to age 5. The programs are full-time care facilities with master teachers that are certified in early childhood or a closely related field. Both centers have 3 full-time substitutes on site to be able to provide that continuity of care that children need and deserve when DCD teachers are out of the building because of vacation, sick, or training. The DCD programs also use Kids Report, an electronic parent communication system to share information with parents and ProCare, an electronic child care management tool for billing, attendance, and child records. Delaware Child Development has a center in Chelsea that is operated by a non-profit through a third party agreement.


In addition to the centers, you will be touring the DCD offices where services are provided for families, children, and child care providers through the DCD Subsidy Program, Resource and Referral (a contract with the state office of child care) and training for providers, Smart Start (a state contract), Family Child Care Home Child Nutrition (CACFP), billing and quality assurance for the centers, accounting and HR, maintenance, training, and nutrition services for the DCD centers.
