Child Care

Child care programs are licensed or registered to provide supervised care within designated facilities or homes for children during some portion of a 24-hour day. Staff for approved child care programs must meet defined educational requirements; the program must ensure specified adult/child ratios; and the facility must meet building, fire and zoning codes. Services may include recreational and developmental activities and snacks and/or meals, as appropriate.

Child care programs in Texas are regulated by Child Care Licensing.
