    If your child is disabled or requires special assistance, you must provide a copy of the IEP/IFSP. IEP/IFSP is an individualized plan written by the public school or SoonerStart that assists your child with achieving goals and objectives listed on the IEP/IFSP.

  • What happens at the application event (or at the admissions office)?

    Parents or guardians complete and submit applications with the required documents. CAP Tulsa staff answer questions, complete application interviews and collect all documents required for a complete application.

  • I am not comfortable using a computer. Can someone help me complete the online application?

    If you need additional assistance with using a computer to apply, we are here to help. Please notify the associate when you are at the admissions office or application event.

  • How long does it take to enroll my child?

    Immediate enrollment is not available for CAP Tulsa Early Childhood Programs. Your family information is entered into a computer, which assigns your child to the Early Childhood Programs wait list.

If your family is selected, you will be contacted at the numbers provided on your application.
