Texas Rising Star (TRS)

A Texas Rising Star Provider is a child care provider that has an agreement with Workforce Solutions' child care contractor to serve Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) subsidized children and that voluntarily meets requirements that exceed the State's Minimum Licensing Standards for child care facilities. The Texas Rising Star Provider certification system provides graduated levels of certification as providers meet progressively higher certification requirements.

Texas School Ready (TSR)

The Children’s Learning Institute implements the Texas School Ready! project as an early education approach that serves at-risk preschool-aged children through shared resources between public and private early childhood education programs.  The design of Texas School Ready! increases children’s school readiness through five evidence-driven components: research-based curriculum, technology-driven child progress monitoring, facilitated teacher professional development, ongoing teacher mentoring, and sustainability; including participation in the Texas School Readiness Certification System (SRCS).

National Accreditation 

National organizations require child care providers to meet rigorous early childhood education standards and guidelines for high-quality care. Accreditation is a mark of distinction that helps you find the best possible educational experience for your child.

Programs that are accredited have demonstrated their commitment to go beyond the state’s minimum licensing requirements. When a center is awarded accreditation they are meeting very rigorous national standards in health, safety, administration and teacher qualifications, curriculum, communication and community involvement.

The program must offer the kind of care, attention, and educational activities parents look for in quality child care programs. It must offer activities and experiences that will aid in a child's growth and development, and that will help them prepare for school.
