Child Care Regulation Training and Resources

As a child care provider, you provide a service to your community and play an important, meaningful role in the growth, development, and education of Texas Children. Child Care Regulation (CCR) provides training and resources for current or prospective providers to ensure that children receive quality services in healthy, safe, and nurturing environments. For more information:

  • Prospective providers can learn more about the requirements for becoming a provider and the application process by signing up for orientation classes here.
  • Current providers can find information regarding technical assistance, provider training, and other resources at the links below.

Online Training and Resources for Child Care Providers

Locate on-line child care training courses to complete state-mandated training requirements, professional development, and CDA renewal requirements. Visit the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension webpage to learn more.

Reporting Abuse

This course provides professional reporters with information on mandatory reporting law for abuse and neglect of children. The Reporting Abuse and Neglect training does not meet all training requirements mandated by Texas Education Code §38.004 (c)(2).
