Minimum Standards for Child-Care Centers

Regular price $30.00

The Minimum Standards for Child-Care Centers were developed by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) with the assistance of child-care operations, parents, lawyers, doctors, and other experts in a variety of fields. The child-care licensing law sets guidelines for what must be included in the standards.

The Minimum Standards for Child-Care Centers are intended for licensed child-care centers; and any unlicensed child-care center that is subject to Licensing’s regulation and requires a license per Chapter 42 of the Human Resources Code.

The Minimum Standards mitigate risk for children in out-of-home care settings by outlining basic requirements to protect the health, safety and well-being of children in care. Every staff person who works with children in a licensed facility or family day home is required to know and follow Minimum Standards for Child Care. Knowledge of these standards contributes to safe, quality care, providing clear guidelines and equipping everyone for regular compliance visits from licensing representatives.
