  • 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, especially at-risk children, 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 childcare providers, and for parents looking for high-quality childcare for their children.


    The Texas Rising Star program is “a voluntary, quality-based child care rating system of childcare providers participating in the Texas Workforce Commission’s subsidized child care program.”

    TRS Certification is available to Licensed Center and Licensed and Registered Child Care Home providers who meet the certification criteria. The TRS Provider certification system offers three levels of certification (Two-Star, Three-Star, and Four-Star).
