Texas Rising Star Provider certification is a process for improving the quality of child care services provided 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. Certification as a Texas Rising Star Provider is available to Licensed Center, Licensed Child Care Home, and Registered Child Care Home providers who meet the certification criteria.


Participants attending the orientation will receive information on the application process as well as helpful tips and strategies related to meeting specific Texas Rising Star Provider criteria.
