Finding accessible and affordable childcare continues to be a challenge for working guardians across the country. To help alleviate this obstacle in Rogers County, the Claremore Children’s Center announced the opening of a second childcare facility located in Chelsea, OK. The new operation Chelsea Children's Center LLC is expected to open in October of 2022 and will have the initial capacity to care for 30 children of various ages.

The expansion of Claremore Children’s Center will add an additional 10 jobs to the community and an economic impact expected to exceed $1,587,267 in the first year.

“We are thrilled to expand our services and provide another quality childcare option for Rogers County,” said LaKisha McNair, owner and director of the Claremore Children’s Center. “We remain committed to providing a program centered on Christian values that develops not only a child’s cognitive skills, but shapes their character.”
