ELG and Core Competencies 

Early Learning Guidelines  assist parents, child care teachers and other caring adults regarding what children may know and be able to do.   

The purpose is to enhance learning experiences for Oklahoma's youngest children and help provide a safe, nurturing and developmentally appropriate environment. The Early Learning Guidelines provide examples of experiences that can be used to build relationships, develop purposeful play and guide program development. 


The Oklahoma Core Competencies focus on the most essential skills needed by adults to provide, or put into practice, quality early care and education for all children.
