Dreams are free but a quality education to achieve those dreams can cost a bundle. That's why the Chickasaw Nation wants to help its citizens reach their full potential with grants, scholarships and incentives. Programs are available for all age groups.

The mission of the Child Development Center is to help children begin their journey of learning from their first day at the center, whether they are six months old or four years old. To facilitate this mission, children are taught such things as Chickasaw language, sign language, martial arts, ballet and tumbling.
