How It All Began...

The Central Oklahoma Children's Directory began as the inspiration between two moms in 1994. Now 24 years later, the Directory serves families in the Central Oklahoma area. Services and businesses in the Directory offer a wide range of opportunities. From educational consultants to museums, the Directory can aid you in your quest for family-friendly activities and services.

The Central Oklahoma Children’s Directory is a family-owned business. Terri Folks is the publisher who came up with the original concept 24 years ago. Her sister, Sherry Protus is the co-publisher and advertising sales manager. Terri also does the layout and design for the Directory and is also the webmaster. Lesa Ferster has joined the staff as an advertising sales representative.

10,000 directories are printed each six months and are distributed throughout the Edmond and metro Oklahoma City area. Participants in the Directory distribute it through their businesses. Extra copies are also available at the Edmond Chamber of Commerce, 825 E. 2nd, 405-341-2808, or the Edmond Library 10 S. Boulevard, 405-341-9282.

The Directory is available on-line and is a quick and easy to view. And it is absolutely the best value for advertising your business in this area.
