9500, Issuing a Child Care Administrator’s License

February 2020

CCR staff will issue a child care administrator’s license if:

  1. the applicant’s background check results do not contain criminal history or central registry findings that preclude the person from receiving a license;
  2. the applicant has the academic and experience requirements for an administrator’s license;
  3. the applicant passes the licensing administrator’s examination;
  4. the applicant pays the application and background check fees; and
  5. the applicant meets any other child care administrator’s license requirements.

If the applicant does not meet the requirements to receive a child care administrator’s license, CCR staff may deny the application.

In addition to the administrator’s licensing background check process required in 9110 Documents Required for a Complete Licensed Administrator’s Application, the operation where the person works must request a background check as required in 10121 Persons for Whom Operations Must Submit Requests for Background Checks.

9510 Issuance of a Provisional Child Care Administrator’s License

February 2020

A provisional child care administrator’s license is granted for a limited time pending the issuance of a full child care administrator’s license.

Licensing staff may issue a provisional child care administrator’s license to an applicant who:

  1. is licensed in good standing as a child care administrator for at least two years in another state, the District of Columbia, a foreign country or a territory of the United States that has licensing requirements that are substantially equivalent to those in Texas;
  2. has passed a national or other examination recognized by Licensing that demonstrates competence in the field of child care administration; and
  3. is sponsored by a person licensed as a child care administrator in the state of Texas. However, if Licensing staff determines the requirement to obtain a sponsor constitutes a hardship to the applicant, this requirement may be waived.
