Child Care Quality Providers

The Texas Government Code §2308.3171 defines a “quality child care indicator” as any appropriate indicator of quality services, including if the provider:

  1. is a Texas Rising Star (TRS) certified provider; www.texasrisingstar.org 
  2. is accredited by a nationally recognized accrediting organization approved by the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC);
  3. is participating in the Texas School Ready! (TSR) project; http://texasschoolready.org or
  4. is approved by TWC as a program with a quality child care indicator.

Boards must provide information on child care providers that meet any of the quality child care indicators for each licensed or registered child care provider in their workforce area to:

  1. parents applying for or receiving subsidized child care services; and
  2. the public.
