PROPORTION OF FULL-TIME WORKING PARENTS FOR WHOM CHILD CARE IS UNAFFORDABLE
Working parents are forced to leave work, change jobs or turn down job offers because of childcare obligations. We make it possible for working families to afford childcare and thus advance their careers while building strong, stable families.
Access to affordable child care is critical to promoting long-term job stability and self-sufficiency.
Childcare Services (CCS) enables parents to work or attend courses by offering access to subsidized daycare services, information about trusted providers, parent classes, and referral to other resources.
Childcare Services can provide information about other programs within Workforce Solutions of Central Texas that might benefit you and how to find a daycare center in your area, or all across Texas.
We support providers through quality improvement
projects and training opportunities.
-Texas Rising Star Certification System
-Texas School Ready! Program
-Taking Charge of Change Director’s Leadership Academy
-Scholarship program for child care teachers
-Training calendar with opportunities for all early care and education professionals.
48 percent of people in Texas live in a childcare desert, including here in Central Texas. A child care desert is any census tract with more than 50 children under age 5 that contains either no child care providers or so few options that there are more than three times as many children as licensed child care slots. Watch the video below to see how we are working to bridge the gap between working families and the childcare that they need.
