Quality Initiatives

General Information

Workforce Solutions of West Central Texas recognizes the vital role that quality child care plays in the development of young children. A child’s experience during the critical early years lays the foundation for the rest of their lives. As a result, child care affects the way that children think, learn, and behave.

Texas Rising Star Program

Because the quality of care a child receives early in life is so critically important, Workforce Solutions encourages their contracted providers to participate in the Texas Rising Star (TRS) Program, a voluntary program designed to recognize those child care providers meeting criteria that exceeds the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services Child Care Licensing Minimum Standards.
