CHOOSING A QUALITY CHILDCARE PROVIDER


Choosing a high quality program can have a significant impact on your child's readiness for success in kindergarten and later grades.  Children who attend high quality programs can make significant gains in their knowledge, skills and abilities.

In Texas, child care programs can pursue higher quality through several avenues.  Texas Rising Star is one of these options for child care providers, and for parents looking for high quality child care for their children.

Additionally, child care providers participating in the Texas School Ready grant program provide quality child care services focusing on preschool children.  Find support organizations and programs near you by visiting us online at TexasChildCareSolutions.org
