Classes Begin August 19th!

Welcome to D.D. Kirkland Elementary

Kirkland Early Childhood Center School is unique in Putnam City – a school dedicated solely to the education of young children.  As an early childhood education center, we serve children in pre-kindergarten through second grade.

At Kirkland, we believe in the enduring value of a solid academic foundation.  Our experienced, highly trained and loving classroom teachers, each certified in early childhood education, work hard to meet the individual needs of their students.  We learn about our students, identify their interests and strengths, and use that information to help develop well-rounded children. We provide impactful, relevant academic instruction within nurturing child-centered classrooms. We encourage our families to be involved in the school because it helps students to be successful learners.

Putnam City’s Child Development Center Saves Money for Teachers

Putnam City Schools is offering a benefit that saves its teachers an estimated $4,000 a year and as an additional bonus brings them peace of mind. And even though the benefit is significant, it’s one that few other Oklahoma school districts provide: district-operated child care.

It is of importance to inform the public that Putnam City Schools manages an established online virtual public school that has been successfully operating since 2011 under public school guidelines.
