What does that mean?
Texas Rising Star Provider certification is a process for improving the quality of child care services available in Texas. A Texas Rising Star Provider is a child care provider that has an agreement 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.
Our staff attended trainings over the spring semester and had multiple observations by our mentor. In August we had our final observation and were assessed on our learning environments, ratios, parent participation, and staff training and education. In the end we received four stars... The highest rating!
