I have completed the process with the State of Texas Department of Family Services of becoming a Registered child care provider, which includes being regularly inspected by agents of the state for home and child safety and to ensure that all state minimum standards are met for child care.
I am required to keep a current CPR and first aid certification.
Low care taker to child ratio
I stay below minimum state requirements for child to care taker to provide a more personal environment for the children. I prefer this as it allows me to focus more on the care of the child rather than the numbers of them
30 PLUS HOURS OF TRAINING EACH YEAR
The state requires that I take 30 hours of training in child care each year. I exceed this yearly as I feel the more training you have in new procedures the better I can care for others.
