The Warmline for Oklahoma Child Care Providers offers free telephone consultation to child care providers on numerous topics of concern.  Consultants can also refer providers to appropriate services and resources within their communities.

 A Consultant Can Help:

  • Clarify a problem
  • Provide information, included printed materials, if available
  • Help generate ideas and solutions
  • Offer guidance on developmentally appropriate practices
  • Provide referrals to meet individual needs and requests
  • Direct providers to relevant resources to assist with a concern
  • Provide follow-up when needed

Consultants answer the Warmline Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. or click here.  Messages left after hours will be answered as
soon as a consultant is available.  Questions can also be emailed

Automated Topic Library:

Effective September 1, 2017, the pre-recorded phone topics are no longer available.  All topics can still be accessed here.
